Grizzlies and Spurs are an OVER Bettors' Dream

Home-court advantage is huge in the NBA playoffs, and the San Antonio Spurs-Memphis Grizzlies first-round Western Conference series has been a great example of that. With action switching back to Tennessee, Grizzlies backers will be hoping that trend continues in Game 6 tonight. Sportsbooks opened the Spurs as 4-point road chalk with a total of 189.5.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone OVER in the Spurs' last five games on the road.
  • The Grizzlies are 2-5 ATS in their last seven games.
  • The visiting team is 0-9 SU in its last nine games in this matchup.

The Spurs breezed to double-digit victories in each of their three home games but are 0-4 SU in Memphis including the regular season and suffered a 110-108 overtime heartbreaker in their last visit in Game 4.

The Grizzlies did a much better job of clamping down on defense in Games 3 and 4 but that went out the window in Game 5, as the Spurs shot 52.5 percent from the floor and an impressive 14-for-28 from 3-point range. Mike Conley is doing his part for the Grizzlies by averaging 27.3 points on 53.5 percent shooting over the last four contests.

The OVER continues to be a fantastic bet in this series, as the teams combined for 219 points in the last tilt, which went above the closing total by 30.5 points. Four of the five games in the series have now gone OVER the total.
