BETTING TRENDS

Orlando are 4-2 ATS in their last 6 games.

Orlando are 2-11 SU in their last 13 games when playing on the road against Memphis.

Memphis are 11-4 ATS in their last 15 games.

The total has gone OVER in 9 of Memphis' last 12 games.

Prediction

One of the best teams in the league face one of the worst. This spread is thick but the Grizzlies are coming from a loss and will try to bounce back with a nice win at home. The Magic have played 3 times in 4 days and they should get here a little tired so expect a total domination from the Grizzlies at home. 

PICK: Grizzlies -15.5 (-110)
