The Los Angeles Lakers (40-32, ninth in the Western Conference) will face off against the Memphis Grizzlies (24-48, 13th in the Western Conference) on Wednesday at 8 p.m. EDT. The FANDUEL SPORTSBOOK NBA LINE predicts the Lakers as favorites with a -4 point spread and an over/under of 217.5.

The Lakers are currently on a four-game winning streak and will be looking to extend it with a victory over Memphis. The Grizzlies have struggled this season, posting a record of 14-33 in Western Conference games and sitting at the bottom of the NBA in scoring with just 45.2 points per game in the paint.
