Score: 94 - 101
Point Spread: +9/-105 Memphis
4* NBA SMASH on Grizzlies +9
After narrow losses of 3 and 5 points in the season's first 2 meetings, Memphis won't be lacking any confidence as it looks to spoil Oklahoma City's 5-game home winning streak.
The Grizzlies have regained their swagger with back-to-back wins over solid Denver and Atlanta squads, and I expect no letdown against a team they want badly.
This will be Memphis' 5th game in 7 days, but history tells us not to be concerned. Plays on road underdogs of 3.5 to 9.5 points off a road win by 10 points or more, a team playing their 5th game in 7 days, are 13-1 ATS the last 5 seasons.
In addition, Memphis is an incredible 20-4 ATS when playing on back-to-back days over the last 2 seasons, winning these games by an average of 3.8 points. We'll take the points.
