The Grizzlies are 7-18-1 ATS in their last 26 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Raptors are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 Thursday games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games. The under is 4-1 in Grizzlies last 5 overall. The over is 6-1 in Raptors last 7 overall. The Grizzlies are 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Toronto and 2-9 ATS in the last 11 meetings.

The Memphis Grizzlies are in a bit of a funk at the moment, but they've earned enough respect over the years to assume they'll bounce back. The Toronto Raptors are banged up, and their defense continues to slip. Even at home, I'd need an extra bucket or two to consider the Raptors. I like the Grizzlies to get a nice bounce back victory on the road.
