NBA FREE PICK: Memphis Grizzlies +102
San Antonio vs. Memphis,
02/06/2012 20:00 EDT,
Score: 89 - 84
Money Line: +102 Memphis
This is a great spot to back the Grizzlies at home as a small 1-point favorite. Memphis should be extremely motivated to win this game after losing consecutive games on the road to Oklahoma City and Boston. They will also be out for some revenge against the Spurs, who have already beat the Grizzlies twice this season, including a 10-point win at Memphis last Monday.
The Spurs come in riding a four game winning streak, but each of their last three wins have came at home. While you can't ignore the fact that San Antonio went on the road and beat Memphis, you have to consider the fact that the Spurs are just 3-8 straight up and 4-7 ATS in 11 road games this season.
The Grizzlies did just play on Sunday at Boston, but playing consecutive days hasn't been a huge problem for this team over the last couple seasons. Memphis is 21-4 ATS when playing on back-to-back days over the last 2 seasons. They are also 22-9 ATS when the line is +3 to -3 over the last 2 seasons! BET THE GRIZZLIES!
