The under is 8-3 in Nuggets last 11 home games. The Grizzlies are 2-5-1 ATS in the last 8 meetings in Denver and 6-2-1 ATS in the last 9 meetings.
The Memphis Grizzlies are more than capable of winning this game, but this line has flipped mainly due to Murray being ruled out. Still, the Nuggets are a very tough team, especially at home, and you don't get them in these spots often as home dogs. Nikola Jokic is expected to play. The Nuggets win at home by an average of 9.1 points while shooting 51.8 percent from the field. Give me the free bucket.
