Despite being frisky in a lot of games this season, the Grizzlies find themselves 14th in the West with a relatively poor 5-12 record. Utah have been solid but unspectacular, securing 6th place with an 11-7 mark so far.
Utah are 7.5-point road favourites in this spot, garnering around 60% of the early market action. This is another spot where I see value in the home dog, and I like Memphis through the key number of 7.
Having suffered through a bevy of close losses, the case can be made that this team is much better than their record suggests. They beat this very same Utah team and suffered losses to the two LA teams by a combined 3 points.
They shape up well from a health standpoint, with rookie phenom Ja Morant looking the goods in his return against the Clippers. This is a side that is much better at home than they are on the road, which should prove beneficial here.
I also think this is a great line value spot for the Grizzlies. Teams that play at altitude like Utah and Denver tend to be overvalued on the road, which I suspect is the case here.
Memphis match up very well with Utah on the interior, with Crowder, Jackson, and Valanciunas forming a bruising frontcourt. This will allow them to set the tempo here and keep things competitive with easy buckets.
7 is arguably the most important number in NBA handicapping, especially if we get into the free-throw game late. Memphis are a definite live underdog here, but the current 7.5 on offer is too good to ignore.
Tip: Utah Jazz at $1.32
