The Grizzlies are 7-3-1 ATS in their last 11 Friday games and 4-10 ATS in their last 14 road games. The Spurs are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 home games and 7-20 ATS in their last 27 games overall. The under is 17-6-1 in Grizzlies last 24 overall. The over is 5-1 in Spurs last 6 overall. The Grizzlies are 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings.
The Memphis Grizzlies have been a mess on the road for the last month or so, but they're head and shoulders the better team here and should get the job done. The San Antonio Spurs remain in tank mode, and they showed that again against the Mavs in overtime without Luka and Kyrie. The Spurs aren't trying to win, and when games are close they lay down to make sure those ping pong balls add up. The Spurs lose on the season by an average of 9.6 points. It's the Grizzlies and the chalk or pass for me.
