The San Antonio Spurs continue on the road and now will visit the Memphis Grizzlies on Monday night. These teams have met twice so far this season and the Grizzlies have won both games.

BETTING TRENDS

San Antonio are 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 games.

The total has gone OVER in 5 of San Antonio's last 6 games.

Memphis are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games.

The total has gone OVER in 8 of Memphis' last 10 games.

Prediction

The Grizzlies are the better team here as they rank #2 in offense and are averaging 123.6 ppg in their last 10 games but the Spurs offense has been really good too, ranking #7 in the league and have scored 120.7 ppg in their last 10 games. Dejounte Murray is likely to play so expect fireworks on this game and I think the Spurs can keep it close. Take the Spurs with the points.
