The Wizards are 4-12-1 ATS in their last 17 road games and 7-18-1 ATS in their last 26 games overall. The Grizzlies are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 home games and 23-9 ATS in their last 32 games overall. The over is 19-9-1 in Wizards last 29 overall. The under is 7-2-1 in Grizzlies last 10 home games. The Wizards are 5-16-1 ATS in the last 22 meetings in Memphis and 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
The Washington Wizards are piling up the losses and not having much success covering numbers. The Memphis Grizzlies are on the end of a back to back, but they've been one of the more consistent teams in the league this season, both SU and ATS, so I'm not really worried about them here. The Grizzlies win at home by an average of 6.2 points, and they've covered seven of their last eight games in the favorite role. The line is more than reasonable. Give me the Grizzlies here.
