The Memphis Grizzlies are shooting 35.7 percent from beyond the arc and 78.5 percent from the free throw line. The Memphis Grizzlies are allowing 39.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.3 rebounds per game.

The Houston Rockets need a win here to snap a 10-game losing streak. The Houston Rockets are averaging 108.7 points on 44.3 percent shooting and allowing 111.9 points on 45.9 percent shooting. Christian Wood is averaging 22 points and 10.2 rebounds while John Wall is averaging 20.2 points and 6.4 assists.

The Grizzlies are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 Sunday games. The Rockets are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games and 1-9 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The under is 4-1 in Grizzlies last 5 overall. The under is 35-15-1 in Rockets last 51 home games. The Grizzlies are 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Houston and 2-8 ATS in the last 10 meetings.

The Memphis Grizzlies have played some of their best ball this season on the road where they win by an average of 3.1 points while shooting 47.8 percent from the field. The Houston Rockets are not only riding a 10 game losing streak, but they're losing their last five games by an average of 12.8 points while allowing 50 percent shooting. It's hard to back the Rockets with any confidence. I'll lay the bucket with the Grizzlies.
