15* NBA Thursday No-Doubt Rout on Atlanta Hawks -4
Memphis vs. Atlanta,
02/02/2012 19:30 EDT,
Score: 96 - 77
Point Spread: -4/-110 Atlanta
The Memphis Grizzlies remain overrated despite playing without their best player, Zach Randolph. It has finally caught up to them as the Grizzlies are just 1-4 SU & 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. This team should not be getting this much respect Thursday.
Atlanta continues going under the radar despite being one of the top teams in the league. The Hawks are 16-6 on the season, including 8-1 at home where they are outscoring opponents by 11.6 points/game. Memphis is 4-7 on the road, getting outscored by 5.8 points/game.
The Grizzlies are 0-7 ATS in their last 7 road games vs. a team with a winning home record. The Hawks are 5-0-1 ATS in their last 6 games as a favorite. Atlanta is 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games as a favorite of 0.5-4.5. These three trends make for a 17-0 system backing the Hawks. Plus, the Grizzlies are just 2-8 ATS in the last 10 meetings in this series. Take Atlanta Thursday.
