The Grizzlies are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games as an underdog and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Clippers are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The over is 6-0 in Grizzlies last 6 overall. The under is 5-2 in Clippers last 7 games as a favorite. The Grizzlies are 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Los Angeles.

Both of these teams are missing key players, but the Clippers should still have the edge at home, especially if Bledsoe and Jackson contribute the way they did against the Warriors. The Memphis Grizzlies not having Dillon Brooks is likely going to catch up to them against some of the better teams in the league. I need more points to give the Grizzlies a look here. I'll lay the reasonable chalk with the Clippers on their home court.
