The New Orleans Pelicans and Memphis Grizzlies meet Saturday in NBA action at the FedExForum. The New Orleans Pelicans look for a win after winning five of their last six games. The Memphis Grizzlies look for a win after winning 11 of their last 14 games.
The New Orleans Pelicans are averaging 109.3 points on 45.7 percent shooting and allowing 109.7 points on 46.8 percent shooting. CJ McCollum is averaging 25.6 points and 4.8 rebounds, while Brandon Ingram is averaging 22.7 points and 5.8 rebounds. Jonas Valanciunas is the third double-digit scorer and Devonte’ Graham is grabbing 2.4 rebounds. The New Orleans Pelicans are shooting 33.3 percent from beyond the arc and 79 percent from the free throw line. The New Orleans Pelicans are allowing 36.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.5 rebounds per game.
The Memphis Grizzlies are averaging 115.4 points on 46.1 percent shooting and allowing 109.5 points on 45.3 percent shooting. Ja Morant is averaging 27.6 points and 6.7 assists, while Dillon Brooks is averaging 18.3 points and 3.2 rebounds.

The Pelicans are 13-4 ATS in their last 17 road games and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The Grizzlies are 20-8 ATS in their last 28 home games and 41-19-1 ATS in their last 61 games overall. The under is 6-1 in Pelicans last 7 overall. The under is 5-2 in Grizzlies last 7 overall. The Pelicans are 7-2 ATS in the last 9 meetings.
For the most part, neither of these teams have much to play for, as the Grizzlies are locked into the second seed and the New Orleans Pelicans are highly likely going to finish with the ninth seed for the play-in game. With that said, this line tells me, oddsmakers probably know something we don't. Also, the Grizzlies have been winning and covering machines all year long, which includes a 26-13 ATS record at home and a 51-28-1 ATS record on the season. Sometimes you just follow the trends and the teams that make you money. Give me the Grizzlies.
