The Memphis Grizzlies host the Utah Jazz at FedExForum on Sunday January 8 as part of the NBA regular season. The betting odds and predictions are given below:
Jazz is in terrible shape. They have won only one of their last seven games. After that run of dismal form, they fell to a 20-22 record and 10th place in the Western Conference standings. They come into this game fresh off a 118-126 loss to the Chicago Bulls.
The Grizzlies are one of the best basketball teams. They have now won all of their last five games and come into this game with a 25-13 record. They currently sit second in the Western Conference standings and are looking to match the Nuggets who are immediately above them in the standings.
Lauri Markkanen’s form is very encouraging for the Jazz in the general context of the season. He’s averaged nearly 33 points, 10 rebounds, one assist and one steal per game over the past seven games, a streak in which the Jazz have won just one game.
Ja Morant is currently having an MVP-caliber season. He’s averaged more than 28 points and nearly nine assists per game over the past five games, a streak in which the Grizzlies have won them all.

Jazz vs. Grizzlies bet prediction
The Utah side looks down and out of this one. The Grizzlies are in sensational shape and look unbeatable right now. They have won 15 of their 18 home games this season. The Jazz, meanwhile, have won just eight of their 23 away games this season. Either way, they haven’t been at their best, losing six of their last seven games. The Grizzlies are a much better team on paper and should win easily.
Grizzlies: -8.5 (-110)
