The Grizzlies are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Lakers are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 Monday games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up win. The under is 5-2 in Grizzlies last 7 games playing on 1 days rest. The over is 9-2 in Lakers last 11 overall. The Grizzlies are 2-6 ATS in the last 8 meetings in Los Angeles.
The Memphis Grizzlies have had issues on the road all season, and it's going to take more than Morant for them to find a way to win here. The Grizzlies also lose in the underdog role by an average of 9.7 points. The Los Angeles Lakers are starting to find their groove offensively, and they've played their best at home all year where they win by an average of 3.4 points while shooting 48 percent from the field. I'd need more points to seriously consider the Grizzlies. Give me the Lakers and the reasonable chalk.
