NBA: Lakers Covering Against Grizzlies

The Los Angeles Lakers have been consistent in two things in recent memory; losing and covering against the Memphis Grizzlies. The Lakers are a near perfect 7-0-1 ATS in their past eight contests against the Grizzlies and they will look to continue that trend when the teams meet Sunday.

Though Kobe Bryant has gotten more than his fair share critics about his questionable shot selection, the 37-year old has actually been on of the better shooters on the Lakers recently. Bryant has averaged 21.8 points in 45.5 percent shooting in his past six contests, which was highlighted by a 31-point performance against the Nuggets.

The Grizzlies have struggled with consistency all season long, but they have been near unbeatable when they are actually clicking. Memphis has scored 100-plus points in 12 times this season and they have won 11 of those games.

Pelicans Covering When Facing Rockets

The New Orleans Pelicans have pretty much fallen flat on their faces this season with a 9-20 SU record and an 11-18 ATS mark. The Pelicans have historically been good at covering against their opponents Saturday night though, as New Orleans has gone 15-7-1 ATS in their past 25 games against the Houston Rockets.

Despite holding the second-worst record in the West, the Pelicans have been slowly coming around with a 6-3 SU record in their past nine home games. However, it continues to be the Anthony Davis show in the Big Easy. Davis had 20 points, 10 rebounds, three assists and three blocks in the first half of the Pelicans Christmas day loss to Miami, a feat that has not been done since the 2002-03 season.

A win Saturday night will move the Rockets to two games above .500 for the first time this season. Houston has been righting the ship as of late with the team going 11-5 SU in their past 16 games.

Clippers Have Been A Terrible Bet

If we have seen one thing in the NBA this season it is that the best teams on the court are usually far from the best bet and the Los Angeles Clippers are one of the proofs. The Clippers are just 10-18-1 ATS this season including 8-14-2 as the faves. Saturday night will see the Clippers pack their bags and head to Utah to take on the Jazz.

L.A. will be looking for retribution after a 102-91 loss to the Jazz on Nov. 25 ended their 13-game reign of dominance over Utah. Blake Griffin put the Clippers on his back in that loss as he scored 40 points while also notching 12 rebounds. And it may get easier for Griffin this time around as he will not need to face Rudy Gobert, who strained his MCL on Nov. 30 and has not played since.

The Jazz are just 2-5 SU in their past seven games with the two wins coming over some less-than-amazing teams. Since Gobert went down, the Jazz have become more reliant on the deep ball as they have averaged nearly five more 3-point attempts per game over the past month.
