UNDER the Hot Bet When the Grizz and Spurs Get Together

The San Antonio Spurs have closed the gap on the Kevin Durant-less Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference standings, as the squad stands 2 1/2 games out with 12 remaining. The Spurs will play seven of their next eight at home, beginning with Thursday’s matchup with the Memphis Grizzlies. Oddsmakers initially set the Grizz as 8-point road underdogs with a total of 201.

Shark Bites
  • The Grizzlies are 4-18 SU in their last 22 games against the Spurs.
  • The Grizzlies are 3-1 ATS in their last four games against the Spurs.
  • The Spurs are 2-5 ATS in their last seven games as a favorite of 8.0 or less.

Memphis is competing with the Oklahoma City Thunder for the sixth seed in the West but saw a four-game winning streak come to a halt on Tuesday in a 95-82 setback to the New Orleans Pelicans. The Grizzlies averaged 104.5 points during the streak but had to tally 28 points in the final quarter vs the Pellies to reach 82.

Memphis has found success against the Spurs this season, going 2-0 SU in light of a 104-96 victory last Saturday. Grizzlies shooting guard Tony Allen is questionable for the game with a knee injury after sitting out the Pelicans game.

The UNDER is paying out when these teams get together, evidenced by five of the last seven meetings between the Grizzlies and Spurs going UNDER the total.
