The New Orleans Pelicans got key additions at the trade deadline, and they've shown flashes here and there, but the problem is nothing has been consistent, and it makes them tough to trust in these spots. The Memphis Grizzlies are one of the more consistent teams in the league both SU and ATS and you actually don't see them at lines this soft. The Grizzlies are winning their last five games by an average of 18 points, and they win in the favorite role by an average of 9.9 points. The Grizzlies are 21-8 against the spread on the road. Give me the Grizzlies and this soft line.
