The Rockets are 4-13 ATS in their last 17 road games and 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Grizzlies are 42-18-2 ATS in their last 62 home games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 Wednesday games. The under is 5-0 in Rockets last 5 overall. The under is 18-8-1 in Grizzlies last 27 overall. 

The Memphis Grizzlies are the better team, at home, and you know there's going to be energy in the building with Morant making his return. A blowout wouldn't be shocking. However, this is a thick line and the Rockets have been more competitive lately, which includes losing their last 5 games by an average of 3 points. Also, the Grizzlies are 3-4-1 ATS as double-digit favorites. I'll take a shot with the Rockets and the free buckets.
