Are the Streaking Grizzlies Being Undervalued vs the Cavs?

The Memphis Grizzlies recently hammered the Golden State Warriors, and now they’ll have an opportunity to do the same against another NBA Finals participant when they play the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday. Sportsbooks opened the Grizz as 13.5-point underdogs with a total of 207.

Shark Bites
  • The Cavaliers are 12-0 SU in their last 12 games after an ATS win.
  • The Grizzlies are 7-0 SU and 5-2 ATS in their last seven games after winning as an underdog.
  • The Cavaliers are 8-1 SU and 7-2 ATS in their last nine games with two days off between games.

Memphis has been thriving without the services of starting point guard Mike Conley, who suffered a back injury in early December. The Grizzlies have rattled off six straight victories and won 13 of their past 16 games.

Cleveland owns a four-game winning streak and shot a season-best 57.5 percent from the field during Saturday’s 116-105 triumph over the Charlottet Hornets. LeBron James scored a season-high 44 points and had 10 assists for his ninth career game with at least 40 points and 10 assists.

Historically, Memphis has hated playing in Northeast Ohio. The Grizzlies are a brutal 4-15 SU in Cleveland since moving from Vancouver to Memphis.
