Memphis vs SA Spurs by Marlo
Memphis are inconsistent at home and their record indicates that the visitors have a chance if they are up for it. When it comes to the Spurs, we never have to question whether they are up for it or not as they are an extremely professional outfit and are one of the best road teams in the league.
Spurs are 13-3 on the road and 13-5 on the road. Spurs covered in their last game against highly favoured Clippers who were shorthanded with Paul out.
Nevertheless they walked away 14pt winners with the spread set at -9.5. Tonight they will have to cover a -5.5 spread. They have three straight road wins at Dallas, Phoenix and Golden State.
Memphis are still without Marc Gasol, an invaluable piece of their puzzle. However, Randolph has been performing well enough to lead them with support from his senior players. They showed good resolve to come from 10 down last time out against Pistons to win by 28. However, Pistons are a troubled bunch, losing 7 of their last 8.
Memphis will be without Tony Allen, someone who would be dearly missed on the defensive end against spurs.
Memphis cannot be trusted so it's either no play or the Spurs for me here. The total is set at about 196 and can be a backroute to value as Grizzlies have been scoring more points off late.
However, I'm on Spurs to win 3/3 against their opponent tonight. First half is the play though as I can see Grizzlies trailing by a handful or more at the half.
Line of -5.5 should be covered come finish time but I prefer -2.5 at the half.
Good Luck if you're on.
