The NBA action is entering a new week with a seven-game slate on Monday, March 13, and here you can take a look at the best Grizzlies vs. Mavericks betting pick and odds.
Memphis is searching for the third win in a row, while Dallas is hoping to avoid the third straight loss when they meet at American Airlines Center. The Mavericks are -3.5 favorites on BetOnline Sportsbook, while the total is set at N/A points. These Southwest Division foes will face for the third time this year; the series is tied at 1-1.
Grizzlies snatched a win over shorthanded Mavericks
The Memphis Grizzlies (40-26, 31-34-1 ATS) responded to a three-game losing skid with a pair of victories over the Golden State Warriors and Dallas Mavericks. Both of those wins came at home, but the Grizzlies will not hit on a three-game road trip, which will begin on Monday. Memphis edged the Mavs 112-108 after winning the final quarter by ten points, while the fact that the visitors played without both Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving certainly helped the Grizzlies. The hosts erased an 11-point deficit in the fourth quarter.
Desmond Bane led the Grizzlies with a game-high 25 points, eight assists, and seven rebounds. David Roddy had 24 points, four boards, and two steals, Jaren Jackson Jr. added 14 points, seven rebounds, and two blocks, Xavier Tillman scored 12 points with a team-high eight boards, while Tyus Jones posted a double-double of 11 points and game-high ten dimes with four rebounds.
C Steven Adams (knee), PF Brandon Clarke (Achilles), and PG Ja Morant (suspension) are out indefinitely and will not face the Mavericks on Monday.
Mavericks fell short of the Grizzlies in Memphis
The Dallas Mavericks (34-34, 25-41-2 ATS) lost eight of the previous 11 games and are on a two-game losing run after suffering defeats to the New Orleans Pelicans and Memphis Grizzlies. Even though they played without Doncic and Irving, the Mavericks had a double-digit lead in the fourth quarter and blew it as the Grizzlies celebrated a 112-108 victory. Dallas did hit 15 three-pointers opposite Memphis’ ten but shot only 45.9% from the floor.
Tim Hardaway Jr. led the Mavs with 23 points, six rebounds, and two blocks. Jaden Hardy scored 22 points, Josh Green registered a double-double of 21 points and game-high ten boards along with four assists, while Christian Wood scored 14 points.
PG Luka Doncic (thigh) has been ruled out for Monday’s game against the Grizzlies. PG Kyrie Irving (foot) is questionable.
- 3-9 ATS in the last 12 road games

- 16-4 SU in the last 20 games against the Southwest Division rivals
Memphis Grizzlies vs. Dallas Mavericks Pick
The Grizzlies are not playing well on the road recently, they lost 11 of the previous 12 games. Dallas is playing in a hot and cold form and we can say that the Mavs are underachievers this season, but they will be looking to get revenge for the most recent loss against the divisional foes. Although Memphis is better in both offense and defense, the visitors are playing without Morant, Adams, and Clarke, which is going to be a problem on Monday. The Mavs will likely be without Doncic and Irving again, but I think they have what it takes to beat the Grizzlies.
Pick: Take the Mavericks at -1.5 (-133)
The rivals combined for 220 points a couple of nights ago and I don’t expect to see more points than that on Monday. Both Memphis and Dallas are playing without their top scorers, so I think we’re going to have a low-scoring affair. Under is 5-1 in the last six H2H meetings; Under is 4-1 in the previous five H2H duels in Dallas, Under is 16-5-1 in the Grizzlies’ last 22 overall, while Under is 4-1 in Memphis’ previous five road games.
Pick: Go Under N/A points
