Thirteen can be perceived as unlucky. Memphis might be an unlucky team but they are bad, too, having lost 13 in a row. Let’s look at that trend and others as you ponder this week's NBA picks.

<h2 style="text-align:center"><a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/forum/nba-basketball-betting/" title="NBA Betting Forum">NBA: Betworthy Trends, Week 21</a></h2><h2>Clawless Grizzlies on 13-Game Slide</h2><p>The Memphis Grizzlies have really hit a rough patch at the worst point in the season. Saturday's 107-100 loss at Orlando was Memphis' 13th in a row SU. The Grizzlies, playing without PG Tyreke Evans (ribs), were +7 road underdogs (5-7-1 ATS over L13). Memphis begins this week with the league's worst record (18-44 SU), and trips to San Antonio (Monday) and Chicago (Wednesday) seem like decent spots to fade the Grizzlies with your <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/nba/" title="Free NBA Picks">NBA picks</a> once you check out the <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/betting-odds/nba-basketball/" title="NBA Odds">NBA odds board</a>.</p><h2>Pistons Continue to Backfire ATS</h2><p>We talked about it here last week, but the Detroit Pistons' struggles ATS warrant more light. Detroit fell to a deplorable 3-17 ATS in its last 20 games with Saturday's 105-96 loss to Miami as +5 road underdogs. The Pistons began this week 2-11 ATS since acquiring Blake Griffin from the Clippers on Feb. 1.</p><p><img src="https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/GOJJdI1mHWwoF03xVJ-5_kBYUDXdu0kr-bznUjY00XITOOGk7CkqeoldOXjekWPEcdNtiUS6VieLolKo8_lk18Xi0Vke0SlkTXfqPugjp1bnA1vwHIJ0BsYNiJbsM_Mr1sxsZkmQ" style="height:657px;width:524px" /></p><h2>'Over' Hits in Spurs' L8 Games vs. West</h2><p>The San Antonio Spurs entered this week having played eight consecutive "overs" against Western Conference teams, including Saturday's 116-112 home loss to the Lakers (O/U 218½). In fact, the "over" had hit in 11 of the Spurs' past 12 vs. the West; the only "under" in that span was Feb. 1 against Houston.</p><h2>Thunder Still Making Noise on Saturdays</h2><p>The Oklahoma City Thunder (36-28 SU) have been awful this season ATS (25-39-0). On Saturdays, however, OKC is an impressive 36-17-2 ATS the L55 games played Saturday -- and that includes failing to cover this past Saturday in a 108-100 loss at Portland as +5 underdogs. The two remaining Saturday games on the Thunder schedule won't be easy: March 10 at home vs. San Antonio, and April 7 at Houston.</p>
