The Jazz are on a roll entering tonight's game against the Grizzlies, who are trying to tank their way to a top-three draft pick. All signs indicate both teams will continue in the same direction.

While the Grizzlies have lost four games in a row SU, the Jazz have been steamrolling teams over the past few weeks. Utah has won and covered in six straight games, and they are -6½ road favorites tonight on the NBA odds board.

This is the first of three meetings between these teams this season, and it doesn't look good for Memphis. With Tyreke Evans being held out because of a potential trade and the Grizzlies down several other bodies -- including Mike Conley, who is out for the season -- there is no way they cover this one.

The Jazz are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 road games, and with your NBA picks you should expect that trend to continue. The Grizzlies played Tuesday night, so they likely won’t have the energy to withstand Utah's barrage. Memphis is 6-4 ATS this season when playing on no rest, but they are not being undervalued as much tonight, despite being at home.
