The Memphis Grizzlies are hard to turn down in the underdog role because of their consistency both SU and ATS regardless of who plays. However, the Denver Nuggets have more to play for in this spot, as they're fighting for that fifth seed in the West. The Grizzlies are locked into the second seed in the West, and they're still without some of their key players. We're not being asked to lay much with the Nuggets at home. I'll lay the bucket with the healthier team.
