The under is 21-8 in Grizzlies last 29 overall. The under is 5-2 in Spurs last 7 games as a favorite. The Grizzlies are 4-1-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings in San Antonio.
The San Antonio Spurs are a team I've backed a lot dating back to the NBA bubble, but they're far more attractive in the underdog role. The Memphis Grizzlies have quietly won six straight games, which includes a comfortable win over these Spurs on Saturday. The Grizzlies are shooting 49.2 percent from the field in their last five games while winning by an average of 8.8 points. We're getting free points with the hotter team. I'll take it.
