The Spurs are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 road games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Grizzlies are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Friday games. The over is 8-3 in Spurs last 11 overall. The under is 5-2 in Grizzlies last 7 home games. The over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Memphis and 5-1 in the last 6 meetings.

The Memphis Grizzlies are starting to get healthy again, and they're a dangerous team when they're firing on all cylinders. With that said, the San Antonio Spurs have been a sneaky good team this season that's finding ways to finish games and has had some recent success against the spread. In fact, the Spurs are winning their last five games by an average of 14.8 points. The Spurs aren't a pushover, and this line feels a bit disrespectful if we're being honest. Give me the points.
