Stephen Nover's NBA Early Game Discount Casher
(NBA) Memphis vs. Utah, 08/05/2020 2:30 PM, Score: 115 - 124
Point Spread: 5.50 | -115.00 Memphis (Away)
Bookmaker: Bodog
Result: Loss
The Jazz don't have the urgency the Grizzlies do because their playoff ticket is punched.
The Grizzlies are putting their postseason chances in peril having gone 0-3 since play resumed. The Grizzlies blew a game to San Antonio, losing by two points. They lost a matchup to Portland in overtime and fell to New Orleans by 10 points two days ago. The Grizzlies got good looks at the basket against the Pelicans. They just couldn't hit their shots. Memphis has the talent and coaching to adjust and fix that. 
Utah is 2-13-2 ATS the past 17 times it has been favored. That's not a good role for them. The Jazz also have been having problems with their perimeter shooting. They've yet to adequately replace their second-leading scorer and top outside shooter, injured Bojan Bogdanovic.
