4* NBA *BEST BET* on Grizzlies -1
Motivated by back-to-back losses on the road and a pair of losses to San Antonio this season, expect Memphis to bounce back strong at home tonight.
The Grizzlies have been at their best at home where they have won 7 of 10 games. The Spurs, meanwhile, have struggled on the road, losing 8 of 11. It is also worth noting that they have dropped 5 of their last 6 at Memphis with those five losses coming by an average of 10.4 points.
The fact the Grizzlies played yesterday is of no concern. We're talking about a team that is 21-4 ATS since the beginning of last season when playing on back-to-back days. It has won by an average score of 100.1 to 96.7 in this situation.
Also, the Grizzlies are 17-6 ATS after 2 or more consecutive losses over the last 2 seasons, 25-10 ATS when out for revenge for a same season loss over the last 2 seasons, 19-8 ATS when playing with double revenge - 2 straight losses vs. an opponent - over the last 2 seasons and 15-3 ATS in their last 18 games as a home favorite of 4.5 points or less.
The Spurs are 4-12 ATS in their last 16 road games, 2-10-1 ATS in the last 13 meetings in this series and 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Memphis. Take the Grizzlies.
