Prediction

The Pelicans have been up and down this season and have struggled to cover the spread at home lately as they're 2-4 ATS in their last 6 games at home. The Grizzlies have won 5 of their last 7 games and will have their best player back in the court and Jaren Jackson Jr. is expected to make his debut this season vs Pelicans. Zion Williamson will probably take a break so if he stays out the Pelicans won't have a chance against the Grizzlies. Take Memphis.
