Home-Court Advantage Huge When Grizzlies & Thunder Meet

The Memphis Grizzlies and Oklahoma City Thunder are both firmly in playoff position in the Western Conference, but they have a lot of work to do in order to compete with heavyweights like the Golden State Warriors, San Antonio Spurs and Houston Rockets. The clubs will collide on the hardwood tonight, with the Grizzlies opening as 6-point road underdogs with a total of 207.

Shark Bites
  • The favored team is 10-0 SU in its last 10 games in this matchup.
  • The Thunder are 8-1 SU and 7-2 ATS in their last nine games as home favorites.
  • The Grizzlies are 0-7 SU in their last seven games with two days off between games.

While it’s true the Thunder are lacking a scoring punch behind superstar Russell Westbrook, the big man duo of Enes Kanter and Steven Adams has been doing a great job of shouldering the load of late. Kanter (13.8 points per game) and Adams (12.4) combined for 42 points on 20-of-25 shooting in Monday’s win over the Chicago Bulls.

In the last meeting between the Grizzlies and Thunder on December 29, Memphis crushed OKC behind a combined 46 points from Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol.

Home-court advantage has been extremely important for sports bettors when the Grizz and Thunder get together. Visiting teams are a paltry 1-8 ATS in the last nine between Memphis and OKC.
