Prediction

The Cavaliers are one of the best teams in the league but they have been struggling on the road and will likely be without their best scorer in Donovan Mitchell due to injury. The Grizzlies is the hottest team in the league right now and have one of the best records at home so far. They have been on fire offensively and are looking unstoppable so without Mitchell the Cavs don't have what it takes to beat them. Take the Grizzlies.

PICK: Grizzlies -6 (-110)
