Two teams moving in the wrong direction will faceoff tonight in Los Angeles when the Clippers play host to the Memphis Grizzlies. Both teams have lost two in a row, with the Grizzlies losing three of their last four, while also going 1-4 ATS in their last five games. Tonight’s game will mark the end of a five game west coast road trip for the Grizzlies, which began last Monday.
The Clippers, meanwhile, have struggled against other Western Conference powerhouses, losing back-to-back games to the Rockets and Warriors after starting the season with four straight wins. Blake Griffin will be happy to see Memphis tonight, as he has a history of dominating them. In 16 career games vs the Grizzlies, Griffin has averaged 30 points and 10 rebounds.
Those siding with the Clippers in this one will be happy to hear that the Grizzlies are 0-5 SU and ATS in their last five games as underdogs. The Grizzlies have also struggled when playing on one day’s rest, going 0-7 ATS in their last seven games after a day off. Even more reason to like the Clips—They’re 6-1 SU and 5-2 ATS in their last seven games after consecutive losses.
The teams split their season series last season, each winning two games.
