The Mavericks are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games as a favorite. The Grizzlies are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 home games and 11-3 ATS in their last 14 games overall. The under is 19-7 in Mavericks last 26 overall. The over is 4-1 in Grizzlies last 5 overall. The Mavericks are 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Memphis and 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
The Dallas Mavericks are probably the better team here and they've played some of their better ball on the road where they win by an average of 4.4 points. However, the Grizzlies have been the more consistent team, especially lately, and they're winning their last five games by an average of six points while shooting 50.1 percent from the field. The Mavs have run hot and cold all season and the Grizzlies are 12-6 against the spread when an underdog of seven or less points. Give me the home team and the free bucket.
