The Grizzlies are 20-7 ATS in their last 27 road games and 35-17 ATS in their last 52 games overall. The Thunder are 23-5 ATS in their last 28 Sunday games and 1-5-2 ATS in their last 8 home games. The over is 11-5 in Grizzlies last 16 overall. The over is 7-2-1 in Thunder last 10 overall. The Grizzlies are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Oklahoma City and 8-2 ATS in the last 10 meetings.
You're asking a lot of a road team to cover a number this big, but the Memphis Grizzlies have been one of the more consistent teams in the league in terms of wins and covers, and that includes a 23-11 against the spread record on the road. The Oklahoma City Thunder also look like a team that's ready for the season to end, as they've lost four straight games, and they're losing their last five games by an average of 19 points. Massive number, but I'd side with the Grizzlies if forced to pick.
