Houston Rockets vs Memphis Grizzlies prediction

The Memphis Grizzlies continue to struggle on both sides of the ball, they're still banged up, and they just lost to the Rockets on Wednesday by 13 points. The Houston Rockets are back on a hot streak, and they've been one of the best moneymakers this season for NBA bettors with their 15-5-1 ATS record. Until the Grizzlies get healthy partially with the return of Ja Morant, it's hard to beck them with confidence. I'll lay the reasonable number with the Rockets on the road.
