Suns vs Grizzlies Prediction & Player Prop of the Game: Will Ja and Co. get the Job Done Again?
The Phoenix Suns travel to the Memphis to take on Ja Morant and the Grizzlies in a Western Conference showdown fresh off of a matchup just 4 days ago.
Both these teams picked up losses on Christmas day and now come to square off in Tennessee, looking to grab a win.
Keep reading for analysis, a Game Prediction and the Prop of the Game!
Ja and Co. Top in the West?
There is no doubt that Ja Morant is fantastic and has been awesome to start the season for the Grizzlies.
Even though they lost on Christmas day to the Steph-less Warriors, the Grizz are sitting 3rd in the West and have been without arguably their second best player for the past month.
Desmond Bane is back and will ease the load on Ja as the season continues and the Grizzlies pick up even more steam.
If Ja can stay healthy and his supporting cast can stay consistent, the Grizzlies could be a real threat to the rest of the West, and make a deep playoff run.
Can the Suns keep shining without Booker?
The Suns lost superstar Devin Booker on Christmas Day, as he reaggravated a groin injury.
The Suns were able to hang around with the Nuggets in Denver but amazing performances by Nikola Jokic and Aaron Gordon saw the Suns fall in OT.
The Suns are sitting 5th in the West and are going to look to pick up as many wins as possible with Booker sidelined.
In this battle of two Western Conference foes, who will grab a big conference W in the last week of 2022?
- Suns +8 (-106)
- Grizzlies -8 (-114)
- Suns (+250)
- Grizzlies (-310)
- Over 225 (-110)
- Under 225 (-110)
This is a great spot for the Grizzlies and a tough spot for the Suns.
I love the Grizzlies to take care of business, just like they did 5 days ago against the Suns 125-100.
Give me Ja and the Grizz to handle their business at home and get a big Western conference win.
Grizzlies -8 (-114)
Suns +8 (-106)
Prop of the Game
Jaren Jackson Jr. o14.5 Pts (-104)
Jackson is a very streaky player so he is hard to rely on but he seems to like playing the Suns.
He just had 24 points against Ayton and Co. 5 days ago and has 15+ points in 5 of his last 6 against the Suns.
This line feels too low and I also like him for 20+ as well for really nice value.
20+ points (+310)
