Phoenix Suns and Memphis Grizzlies Trends

The Suns are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 2 days rest. The Grizzlies are 20-8 ATS in their last 28 Monday games and 35-16-1 ATS in their last 52 home games. The under is 6-2 in Suns last 8 overall. The over is 6-0 in Grizzlies last 6 overall. 

Randy’s Free Pick

The Phoenix Suns aren't winning games and the injuries are getting more and more out of hand as now CP3 is ruled out. Yikes. The Memphis Grizzlies are consistent, and they're a buzz saw at home, where they win by an average of 10.8 points and allow 42.9 percent shooting. The Grizzlies should be able to blow the doors off. It's Grizzlies and the chalk for me, as the Suns are too banged up to back, especially on the road.
