Charlotte vs. Memphis Prediction

I’m on Charlotte here. Memphis is a solid team on paper, but the 49ers have done nothing but battle this season and provide value while the Tigers continue to disappoint, especially at home where they’ve barely covered this season. I think the 49ers have the chops to battle here and I wouldn’t be surprised if they won outright. Give me Charlotte and the points.

Chris’s Pick Charlotte +5.5
