The Suns are 13-6 ATS in their last 19 games playing on 1 days rest and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 Monday games. The under is 4-0 in Grizzlies last 4 games playing on 0 days rest. The over is 4-1-1 in Suns last 6 overall. The under is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings in Phoenix and 7-1 in the last 8 meetings.

The Phoenix Suns have been winning and covering machines, and they're winning their last five games by an average of 14.4 points. It's tough to bet against the Suns. However, the Memphis Grizzlies are playing great ball in their own right, and being on the end of a back to back doesn't mean much when it was an effortless win where the starters could rest. The Suns will also be without a key defensive stopper in Jae Crowder. The Grizzlies have deserved a look here. Give me the road dog.
