The Memphis Grizzlies just beat the Nuggets on Monday, and the home team has won seven of the last 10 meetings overall. There's good reason to consider the Grizzlies here. Still, as I said in the previous matchup, we're getting the better team in the underdog role. And while that didn't work out for us the first time, you're going to make a profit long term if you can continue to find these spots. I'll grab the free point with the Nuggets on the road.
