The Grizzlies are 35-16 ATS in their last 51 games playing on 1 days rest and 39-19 ATS in their last 58 games following a ATS loss. The Rockets are 25-55 ATS in their last 80 home games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 8-3 in Grizzlies last 11 road games. The over is 6-2 in Rockets last 8 overall. The under is 30-14 in the last 44 meetings in Houston.

The Houston Rockets are going to be profitable in the underdog role when they're big underdogs, but they're getting too much respect in this spot. The Memphis Grizzlies are far and away the more balanced side and are sure to frustrate the young Rockets with their defensive pressure. Usually you'd see the Rockets getting more points in a spot like this. This line feels soft if we're being honest. Give me the Grizzlies.
