NBA FREE PICK: Memphis Grizzlies +9

Memphis vs. Oklahoma City, 02/03/2012 20:00
Point Spread: +9/-105 Memphis

My money is on the Grizzlies to go into Oklahoma City and at least keep this game within double-digits. Memphis comes into this game off a 100-97 win at home over the Nuggets and a 96-77 beating at Atlanta last night. The Grizzlies have been a very streaky team, and they way they played last night has me thinking they could possibly win this game outright.

Oklahoma City has already went into Memphis and beat the Grizzlies twice this season, you can bet Memphis will be looking to return the favor tonight. Anytime you get a good team in a double revenge situation that is getting close to double-digits, you have to jump on it. These are the type of games in which the Grizzlies thrive. Memphis is 18-6 ATS when playing against a top-level team (Win Pct. > 70%) over the last 2 seasons.

If you are worried about the Grizzlies playing the second of a back-to-back, don't be. Memphis is 20-5-1 ATS in their last 26 games playing on 0 days rest. BET THE GRIZZLIES!
