BETTING TRENDS

Phoenix are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games against Memphis.

Phoenix are 3-7 SU in their last 10 games against Memphis.

Phoenix are 1-5 SU in their last 6 games on the road.

Phoenix are 6-14 SU in their last 20 games when playing on the road against Memphis.

The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Memphis' last 5 games.

Memphis are 8-3 SU in their last 11 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 8 of Memphis' last 11 games against Phoenix.

Memphis are 7-0 SU in their last 7 games at home.

 

Prediction

The Grizzlies struggled in their road trip losing 3 of their 4 games away from home but they return home where they have lost only 2 of 15 games so far this season. The Suns will be shorthanded again without Booker, Shamet and Payne due to injuries. They have lost 5 of their last 6 games on the road and are only 6-14 in their last 20 games when playing on the road against Memphis. I'm going with the Grizzlies to win and cover.
