Prediction

Considering both teams' struggles in scoring efficiency, with the Magic and Grizzlies ranking in the bottom of the league, the under of 213.5 points becomes an attractive pick. Both teams have faced challenges in putting up high scores consistently, making this game likely to be a defensive battle.
