The Grizzlies are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 0 days rest and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Lakers are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 6-0 in Grizzlies last 6 overall. The under is 6-2-1 in Lakers last 9 overall. The Grizzlies are 2-7 ATS in the last 9 meetings in Los Angeles.
This game is lined up well for the Lakers to win, as they have the rest advantage, they're at home, and they're catching an undermanned Grizzlies team on the end of a back to back. However, we've seen nothing from the Lakers to inspire confidence to back them in the favorite role. The Lakers have spacing issues, they're not playing well offensively, and they've started the season with two ugly, blowout losses. Things may turn around for the Lakers, but I'm just not going to lay these sorts of numbers until they do. It's Grizzlies and the points or pass for me.
