Memphis Grizzlies at Indiana Pacers NBA Betting Analysis, Picks
The Memphis Grizzlies (47-22) travel to Indiana to take on the Pacers (23-46) in a Tuesday night NBA matchup.
Memphis is currently on a roll. They have won three straight games and four out of their last five. They most recently took care of business against Thunder in Oklahoma City and will look to keep playing well in Indiana.
The Pacers are trending in a very different direction. Indiana is just 1-4 over the course of their past five games, but they nearly pulled off an upset over Atlanta over the weekend but ended up losing by three points.
Memphis and Indiana have not yet played this season. They will face off on Tuesday and then again on March 24th in Memphis.
Tip-off is scheduled for 7:00 P.M. EST on Tuesday, March 15th at the Gainbridge Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Betting Analysis for Memphis Grizzlies at Indiana Pacers NBA Betting Analysis, Picks
Memphis Grizzlies Betting Stats & Analysis
Memphis enters play in a tie for second place in the Western Conference standings. It was not all that long ago that the Grizzlies were in fourth place behind Phoenix, Golden State, and Utah, but now they find themselves all knotted up with the Warriors behind only the Suns.
Everybody talks about Ja Morant, and they should. He is a legitimate MVP candidate who is the best player on a very good team. But Memphis’s successful season has also been a product of their elite depth.
Dillion Brooks recently returned from a lengthy injury absence, and he is averaging over 18 points per game. Meanwhile, Desmond Bane is averaging just under 18 points per contest, and Jaren Jackson Jr. has posted averages of 16.4 points and 5.9 rebounds per game.
They rank within the top ten teams in the NBA in points, assists, and rebounds per game as well. Steven Adams has been a monster on the glass with a team-leading 9.8 boards per contest.
But the team goes as Morant goes. The young superstar is averaging 27.5 points per game, but he is more than just a scorer, as proven by his 6.7 assists and 5.8 rebounds per game averages.
Morant and the Grizzlies will look to make it four straight wins on the road on Tuesday.
Indiana Pacers Betting Stats & Analysis
Indiana nearly pulled off the upset in Atlanta over the weekend. However, they easily covered the massive spread.
Former Sacramento King teammates and now Pacers stars Tyrese Haliburton, and Buddy Hield both scored 25 points to pace Indiana in the game. Haliburton completed the double-double by adding ten assists onto his statline as well.
But in the end, Trae Young and his 47 points were too much to handle as Atlanta escaped with the victory.
Nonetheless, the third to last place Pacers have shown signs of life in recent action. Hield and Haliburton have proven to be valuable pickups, as both are averaging over 19 points per game, while Haliburton is also averaging 9.5 assists per contest. He is emerging as a star, and you have to wonder if Sacramento regrets dealing him away.
Malcolm Brogdon also has posted an average of over 19 points per game, so the Pacers have a potential big three in the making. Indiana is not going to make the playoffs this season this year, but they have established a young core with a high ceiling. They could be in the postseason hunt as early as the 2022-2023 campaign.
But for now, they will look to upset the betting odds at home against the talented Memphis Grizzlies.

How To Bet On: Memphis Grizzlies at Indiana Pacers NBA – Betting lines
It is true that home underdogs always have a stronger opportunity of upsetting the odds. But these are two opponents heading in very different directions, so I like Memphis to cover the seven-point spread on the road.
Indiana might be able to keep this game competitive through the first three quarters of play. I would not be shocked if the score was tied entering the fourth quarter. But Morant and Memphis know how to get the job done late in games.
The Grizzlies will win this game, and they should be able to cover the seven-point spread in the end.
