The Memphis Grizzlies have been one of the better teams in the league, both SU and ATS, so I wouldn't let one game scare you away. The Grizzlies win at home by an average of 8.7 points, and they're 27-15 against the spread at home. With that said, the Minnesota Timberwolves have shown us time and time again this season that they're not scared of anybody, and that confidence is growing with this young team. The Grizzlies probably bounce back and get the win, but this feels like too many points to give Minnesota, a young, talented team that feels like it's capable of taking that next step.
