The San Antonio Spurs will get their first look at Ja Morant this season when they travel to Memphis to take on the Memphis Grizzlies. 

Memphis is heavily favored in this game, but Spurs fans may want to try their hand in the prop market to bet on their team that has struggled to get wins this season. 

With Victor Wembanyama playing at a high level, the Spurs have a couple of players you can target tonight in Memphis.

Spurs vs. Grizzlies best NBA prop bets

  • Victor Wembanyama OVER 17.5 points
  • Ja Morant UNDER 1.5 3-pointers made
  • Jeremy Sochan UNDER 11.5 points

Victor Wembanyama OVER 17.5 points

I love this prop for Victor Wembanyama, who has still taken a ton of shots despite his minutes decreasing since he suffered an ankle injury. 

Zach Collins is out tonight, and Wemby had 21 points on 16 shots in just 23:42 in his last game with Collins out. 

Not only that, but Wembanyama has taken at least 14 shots in three straight games despite seeing his minutes cut. If he plays closer to 25-28 minutes, the rookie should easily clear this total. 

Ja Morant UNDER 1.5 3-pointers made

Ja Morant made multiple 3-point shots for the first time in a game all season, so I’ll gladly fade him against the Spurs on Tuesday. 

Morant is shooting just 17.2 percent from 3 this season (5-for-29) even though he’s taking the 3-ball at a high volume in a few games. 

After back-to-back games with seven 3-point attempts, making just one of the 14 shots, Morant took only four 3-pointers in the Grizzlies’ last game. I wouldn’t be shocked to see him cut back going forward since the 3-point shot is not falling. 

Jeremy Sochan UNDER 11.5 points

The Spurs have given a big role to Jeremy Sochan this season, but he’s not much of a scorer for the team. 

With Keldon Johnson (probable) expected back in action tonight, I’m fading Sochan as a scorer.

Sochan has scored fewer than 12 points in 19 of his 32 games this season, and since Dec. 1 he has just four games where he’s scored over 11.5 points. 

Even against a weaker Memphis team, I’m not sold on Sochan scoring a lot, especially since he takes just 9.8 shots per game.
