The Memphis Grizzlies will go on the road to Los Angeles to face LeBron James and the 0-2 Los Angeles Lakers.

L.A. has not looked great to start this season, while the Grizzlies have put up points in bunches on their way to a 2-0 start. 

Here are the odds for this matchup via WynnBET:

Lakers vs. Grizzlies Prediction and Pick

The Grizzlies are 2-0 against the spread this season and have gone over the total in both of their games by an average of 21.5 points. 

I’m going to back the over in this game, and if I were to pick a team against the spread I’d roll with the Grizzlies after the Lakers disappointing start. 

Los Angeles had tough matchups with the Golden State Warriors and Phoenix Suns to start the year, but I’m not sure if the Russell Westbrook, Anthony Davis, and LeBron James trio has gotten enough work together to be favored by this much against the up-and-coming Grizzlies. 

Give me the over and Memphis with the points.
