The Thunder are 37-17 ATS in their last 54 road games and 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Grizzlies are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The under is 5-2 in Thunder last 7 games as an underdog. The over is 6-0 in Grizzlies last 6 overall. The Thunder are 3-7 ATS in the last 10 meetings in Memphis and 0-5 ATS in the last 5 meetings.

The Memphis Grizzlies probably should be the favorite because they're the better team overall, but they're not playing good basketball right now and they lose at home by an average of 6.1 points. The Oklahoma City Thunder obviously have issues of their own, but they're a team that competes, and they're 11-3 against the spread on the road where they lose by an average of just 2.4 points. This line is showing too much respect to the Grizzlies. Give me the points.
