The Grizzlies are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Wednesday games. The Timberwolves are 18-37-1 ATS in their last 56 home games and 12-25 ATS in their last 37 games overall. The under is 21-7 in Grizzlies last 28 overall. The over is 5-1 in Timberwolves last 6 overall. The Grizzlies are 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Minnesota and 6-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings.
The Memphis Grizzlies continue to play subpar basketball and it's hard to get behind this club until Ja returns. The Minnesota Timberwolves are one of the worst teams in the league up to this point, but the return of Towns certainly helps matters. The Timberwolves are simply the healthier team here and will have the best player on the court. I'll lay the bucket with the Timberwolves at home.
