10* Memphis (8:35 ET): Dallas snapped a five-game (SU and ATS) losing streak on Wednesday w/ a 110-101 win over Indiana. The Mavs are a team that plays significantly better at home (21-10 SU) than on the road (6-24 SU) and they'll be hosting Memphis tonight. But the role of favorite hasn't been all that kind to the Mavs. The last time they were asked to lay points, they lost outright - here at home - to Miami by double digits. The Grizzlies, with the top scoring defense in the Western Conference, should certainly be able to "stay in" this game and have a great shot at pulling the outright upset. Take the points.
Memphis is off a bad home loss to Chicago Wednesday night, which was their fifth loss in the last six games. Note, however, that four of those losses have been by six points or less. The team is w/o top draft choice Jaren Jackson Jr for the foreseeable future, but that defense should be able to keep them in most games, including this one. The Grizz allow just 104.1 PPG, so as an underdog, they're still an attractive wager. Note that when playing on exactly two days rest this season, the team's SU and ATS record is 8-3.
Dallas has traded away four starters in an attempt to build for the future. In what projects to be a pretty low scoring game (by modern NBA standards), taking the points just seems like the right way to go here. Despite being division rivals, Memphis and Dallas have met only one time previous to this in 2018-19 and it was the Grizzlies winning 98-88 at home back on November 19th. That time, the Grizzlies were playing the second night of a back to back. With a pretty tough stretch of upcoming games, Memphis should come in really focused tonight. 10* Memphis
