Pick ATS: Grizzlies -5.5
The Trail Blazers have not played great basketball on the road this season with a record of 1-11. During their current five-game road losing skid, Portland has been defeated by 16 points per game.

In their last 10 games, the Grizzlies are holding their opponents 95.4 points per game. Memphis is 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games, but 6-5 ATS as home favorites this season.
Over/Under: Under 219.5
In their first two matchups this season, the total points scored were 212 and 216. If the first two games are indication of what we may see tonight, then the under is in play.
