Trail Blazers at Grizzlies Prediction

The Portland Trail Blazers (24-26 SU, 25-23-2 ATS, 23-25 O/U) hit the road for their second meeting of the season with the Memphis Grizzlies (32-17SU, 24-23-2 ATS, 21-26-2 O/U).

I love this spot for the Grizzlies and hate this spot for the Blazers. Memphis earned a home win against the Pacers on Sunday after returning from a five-game road trip, during which it went 0-5. The Grizzlies are a much better team at home and they should get Desmond Bane back tonight, which would give them a big boost offensively. Portland will be playing its first road game after a seven-game home stand. Backing Portland on the road is cause for concern because at home, the Blazers offense thrives, ranking third in home offensive efficiency; on the road, the shooting percentages go way down and the offensive efficiency drops to 20th. Memphis should be able to get back to its winning ways by taking advantage of its opponents struggles tonight. I like the Grizzlies to cover in both the first half and full game.

My Pick: Grizzlies 1H -2.5, Full Game -5

Raptors at Jazz Prediction

The Utah Jazz (26-26 SU, 29-22-1 ATS, 29-21 O/U) host the Toronto Raptors (23-29 SU, 25-26-1 ATS, 27-25 O/U) for the first meeting of the season between the cross-conference opponents.

To be totally transparent, I like this pick, but I don't love it. There is just something that feels a little fishy about the line in this game, which makes me believe backing Toronto could be the right move tonight. The Raptors are playing their fifth game of a seven-game West Coast road trip. This will be their fourth game in six nights and their fifth game in eight nights, all on the road. The Jazz, meanwhile, haven’t played since Jan. 28, when they beat the Mavericks at home. Shouldn’t Utah be a bigger ATS favorite with the rest and schedule advantage it has over Toronto? I think so, which is why I think the market knows something that I don't. Proceed with caution, but my play is on the road team tonight.

My Pick: Raptors +3

Thunder at Rockets Prediction

The Houston Rockets (12-38 SU, 18-28-4 ATS, 23-27 O/U) host the Oklahoma City Thunder (24-26 SU, 32-18 ATS, 18-28-4 O/U) in a matchup between two not-so-great teams.

This is going to be an ugly one tonight, but I'm going to take the Thunder to cover on the road. While neither team is great, OKC is the better of the two and covers at a much higher rate. The Thunder are 11-2 ATS in their last 13 games and have strung together a stretch of 10 straight ATS wins in that span. They have also covered in their last six road games. Meanwhile, the Rockets are coming off a win over the Pistons, yet they've only strung together two straight wins twice this season. They've also only covered in games immediately following a win on three occasions. That doesn't give me a whole lot of confidence that Houston will be able to keep this one close, so I'll lay the points with the Thunder.

My pick: Thunder -5.5
