The Memphis Grizzlies look to stay hot after winning 13 of their last 16 games. The Memphis Grizzlies are averaging 113.3 points on 47.5 percent shooting and allowing 114.9 points on 45.5 percent shooting. Jaren Jackson Jr. is averaging 17.6 points and 4.7 rebounds while Ja Morant is averaging 17.4 points and seven assists.

The Memphis Grizzlies are shooting 35.7 percent from beyond the arc and 78 percent from the free throw line. The Memphis Grizzlies are allowing 36.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.4 rebounds per game. The Memphis Grizzlies have won five of their last seven road games.
The Philadelphia 76ers need a win here to snap a four-game losing streak. The Philadelphia 76ers are averaging 108.4 points on 46.5 percent shooting and allowing 106.1 points on 45.7 percent shooting. Joel Embiid is averaging 23.1 points and 12.1 rebounds while Tobias Harris is averaging 19 points and 6.7 rebounds. Ben Simmons is the third double-digit scorer and Josh Richardson is dishing 3.4 assists. The Philadelphia 76ers are shooting 34.9 percent from beyond the arc and 74.6 percent from the free throw line. The Philadelphia 76ers are allowing 35.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.7 rebounds per game. The Philadelphia 76ers have won eight straight home games.
The Grizzlies are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 road games, 8-2-1 ATS in their last 11 games playing on 1 days rest and 18-7-1 ATS in their last 26 games overall. The 76ers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games, 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 Friday games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The over is 4-0 in Grizzlies last 4 road games. The over is 8-3 in 76ers last 11 home games. The Grizzlies are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Philadelphia. The over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Philadelphia and 5-2 in the last 7 meetings.
The Philadelphia 76ers play their best ball at home where they've won eight straight and win by an average of 10.2 points. However, the 76ers are a depressed team that plays with very little energy from night to night, and they're on the end of a back to back. The Memphis Grizzlies are a young, hungry squad that continues to get disrespected from oddsmakers and is not only piling up the wins SU, but is 28-22-1 ATS. I'm not stepping in front of the Grizzlies, and I'm certainly not laying big chalk with the 76ers. Give me the points.
