The Memphis Grizzlies look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Memphis Grizzlies are averaging 111.5 points on 46.2 percent shooting and allowing 110.9 points on 46.8 percent shooting. Ja Morant is averaging 19.1 points and 7.5 assists while Dillon Brooks is averaging 16 points and three rebounds. Jonas Valanciunas is the third double-digit scorer and Kyle Anderson is grabbing 5.8 rebounds. The Memphis Grizzlies are shooting 34.8 percent from beyond the arc and 78.6 percent from the free throw line. The Memphis Grizzlies are allowing 37.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 46 rebounds per game.
The Utah Jazz look for a win after winning six of their last 10 games. The Utah Jazz are averaging 116.8 points on 46.7 percent shooting and allowing 108 points on 45 percent shooting. Donovan Mitchell is averaging 25.4 points and 5.5 assists while Jordan Clarkson is averaging 17.2 points and 2.2 assists.

The Grizzlies are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games playing on 1 days rest and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Jazz are 15-2 ATS in their last 17 home games and 25-10 ATS in their last 35 games overall. The under is 11-4 in Grizzlies last 15 overall. The under is 4-1 in Jazz last 5 overall. The Grizzlies are 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Utah.
The Utah Jazz are a team I've blindly backed for much of this ridiculous winning stretch, but there's no doubt they've cooled off over the last two weeks. The Memphis Grizzlies are also a club that's played some of their best ball on the road this season, winning on the road by an average of 4.7 points while shooting 48.2 percent from the field. This will be just the second time this season the Grizzlies are double-digit underdogs. Feels like too many points. I'll take a shot with the Grizzlies.
