15* NBA Wednesday Undervalued Underdog on New Orleans Hornets +4.5
Memphis vs. New Orleans,
01/18/2012 20:00 EDT,
Score: 93 - 87
Point Spread: +4½/-105 New Orleans
The New Orleans Hornets are showing great value tonight as a home underdog to the Memphis Grizzlies. The Grizzlies are getting too much respect here as they should not be laying points on the road without their best player. Zach Randolph remains out with a with a knee injury.
It's like night and day for Memphis home and away. The Grizzlies are an impressive 5-2 at home, but they are only 1-4 SU & 1-4 ATS on the road. Memphis is only scoring 80.6 points/game and allowing 93.8 points/game while getting outscored by 13.2 points/game away from home.
This is a great revenge spot for the Hornets. New Orleans lost at Memphis 99-108 as a 10.5-point underdog just five days ago, so there's no question that that loss is fresh in their minds. They'll be trying extra hard tonight to get some payback. Plus, this will only be their 2nd game in 4 days, so the Hornets come in rested.
The Grizzlies are 1-7 ATS in their last 8 road games. Memphis is 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games following a S.U. win. Worse yet, the Grizzlies are 1-6-1 ATS in their last 8 games following a SU win of more than 10 points. This is an ideal spot to fade Memphis. Take the Hornets Wednesday.
