Grizzlies Feasting on Eastern Conference

Vince Carter Memphis Grizzlies NBA

The Memphis Grizzlies visit the Toronto Raptors Sunday evening and Grizz backers will be wide eyed and eager to pounce as their team has dominated opponents from the Eastern Conference of late.

Shark Bites
  • Grizzlies are 5-0 ATS in their last five games versus the Atlantic Division.
  • UNDER is 11-1 in the last 12 meetings between these teams in Toronto.
  • Underdog is 3-0-1 in the last four meetings between these two teams.

Online shop Bovada is presently offering the Grizzlies as big 8.5-point road pups north of the border.

The Grizzlies have gone 8-0 both straight up and against the spread in their last eight games versus clubs from the Eastern Conference with their last loss versus the East coming on December 26 in a 98-92 defeat to the Charlotte Hornets. They posted a 109-104 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves in their first game following the All-Star break and have now gone 7-2 ATS in their last nine games overall.

The Raps have now lost back-to-back games for the first time since January 3 and 4 as they fell 116-106 at the Chicago Bulls in their first effort out of the break. Toronto has won three of the previous four meetings with the Grizzlies and have gone 2-1-1 ATS in the process.

Toronto was within striking distance of the Cleveland Cavaliers at the top of the Eastern Conference but sit four games back heading into Sunday’s action. The Cavs are in tough versus OKC Sunday, so the Raps will hope to return to the win column with an opportunity to get to three games while LeBron and Co. have their hands full in Oklahoma.
