From Fringe to Formidable, Memphis Rises in SportsbookWed, 19 Nov 2014 18:17
It’s tough to picture the Memphis Grizzlies as a serious player in the Western Conference, but not that they have the best record to start the 2014-2015 campaign, the basketball betting community must rethink the franchise’s chance of winning the NBA Championship. In terms of personnel, the Grizzlies are no more dangerous than they were last season. Fortunately, the roster on hand is overlooked. With four consecutive postseason appearances there’s no denying that this team knows how to win in the regular season. The question is whether they can push into a congested playoff bracket. Marc Gasol has been the cornerstone Grizzlies fans hoped he’d become, and big man Zach Randolph has slowly started handing him the torch. The pair, combined with Mike Conley, makes up one of the most effective threesomes in the league. The Grizzlies will face their share of tests this week, including dates with the Toronto Raptors and Los Angeles Clippers among others. Basketball fans wondering how to bet on the NBA season would be wise to see how Memphis handles the challenge. The Grizzlies won 10 of their first 11 matchups, and should the pace continue, they’ll be tough to overlook in the NBA futures.
