The Memphis Grizzlies have been winning and covering machines all season long, and they're not a team I'm willing to bet against often, especially at home where they win by an average of seven points. With that said, this line is complete disrespect toward the San Antonio Spurs, a team that's played their best ball on the road all year and is also 18-13-1 against the spread on the road. The Spurs also lose as an underdog by an average of 4.3 points. Too many points here. Give me the Spurs.
