Philadelphia and Memphis have been playing well ATS, but the Grizzlies are one of the NBA's most banged-up teams. Can bettors trust them Monday against a Sixers team that is finding its groove?

Free NBA Pick: 76ers -3Best Line Offered: Bookmaker

Memphis is usually a good ATS play, especially at home, but they are 10-13 ATS this season when playing on Beale Street and tonight they will have a short bench.

The Grizzlies still will be without Mike Conley, as well as starter JaMychal Green and swingman James Ennis. They will get Andrew Harrison back but they could be without rookie standout Dillon Brooks and reserve big man Jarell Martin, who are both questionable. With Chandler Parsons also out, there is Marc Gasol, Tyreke Evans, and a whole lot of nothing tonight for the Grizzlies, who are +3 home underdogs on the NBA odds board.

While Gasol and Evans should put up big numbers, the Sixers might be too strong despite some of their injuries. The 76ers have won and covered seven of their last eight games and are 12-10 ATS on the road this season.

The Sixers have been outstanding ATS against the West in 2017-18, going 14-6-1 ATS. With the Grizzlies struggling in non-conference games (4-10 ATS), with my NBA picks I like the Sixers as road favorites here. Philly is 4-3 ATS as road favorites this season.
