Memphis has been stumbling some lately, but the sharp action is all over the Grizzlies tonight. They are poised for a run, while the Wizards’ recent hot streak has been somewhat of an NBA odds mirage.  Don’t fall for it, and instead take the points with Memphis.

Memphis Grizzlies Vs. Washington  Wizards

The Grizzlies haven’t exactly been dominating Eastern Conference teams this season. Imagine if they were, though. This team has been through its fair share of injuries this season, including missing Mike Conley for several games.

That has put on a damper to the Grizzlies' previous ATS records both on the road and overall against the East. However, they are as healthy now as they have been all season, Chandler Parsons is starting to contribute more and this team is poised to make a run.

Plus, because the Wizards have been winning some more lately, people are starting to overvalue them. Washington is 8-3 ATS in its last 11 games overall, but seven of those eight wins came against .500 or worse opponents.

Even at home here in this one, I am taking the points with Memphis. The Grizzlies are the deeper team and they have the defensive horses to matchup with Washington’s best offensive players.
