Trail Blazers vs. Grizzlies Betting Line, DFS Picks – Game 1: Memphis 9-1 in Ser

Gambling911.com has your Trail Blazers vs. Grizzlies betting line for Game 1 of the 2015 NBA Playoffs. We also have some good DFS picks that should be considered throughout the series.

Both these teams managed to hit the .500 mark Against The Spread while Memphis enjoyed four more wins Straight Up during the regular season.

The Grizzlies have won 9 of the last 10 in this series and such domination does not bode well for Trail Blazers backers.  Six of the last seven wins by Memphis were by 6 points or more, each of which would have covered the current 5-point spread.

Memphis is not the most fantasy-friendly team to go up against. 

To emphasize this point, no Trail Blazer player in his last appearances versus the Grizzlies managed to have either double digit assists or rebounds.

Damian Lillard (Portland) - $7.9K – He needs roughly 34 fantasy points to make value.  As a last option for one’s roster, Lillard represents a somewhat safe choice.  He did score 27 points the last time against Memphis and did just enough (3 rebounds and 7 assists) to assure he made value.   

Jeff Green (Memphis) - $5K – Perhaps your best option to start off the series, Green’s price point is just right at $5000.  Last time facing Portland he nearly scored enough points to make value (23).  Green grabbed nine rebounds to seal the deal.  

Marc Gasol (Memphis) - $7.5K – Gasol has demonstrated he can hit value against Portland.  On February 22 he scored 21 points and added on 6 rebounds, 4 assists and 3 blocks for approximately 40 fantasy points.  He needs around 34/35 fantasy points to make value.  Ideally if you can get him closer to $7K, Gasol would present a much more attractive option in this series.
