The Grizzlies are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS win, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Wednesday games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Thunder are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 1 days rest, 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games and 26-12 ATS in their last 38 Wednesday games. The under is 4-1 in Grizzlies last 5 road games. The over is 6-2 in Thunder last 8 home games. The Grizzlies are 2-8 ATS in the last 10 meetings in Oklahoma City. The over is 7-2 in the last 9 meetings.

The Oklahoma City Thunder are playing well, they're 16-10 ATS and they're fresh off a big comeback win over the Chicago Bulls. Even with that, I don't understand why the Memphis Grizzlies are this big of an underdog given their play over the last week, the young core that's coming together and the fact they're winning their last five games by an average of 5.2 points. The Grizzlies have some solid wins under their belt this month and should have your attention at this point. I'll take the points.
