Memphis has been great at cashing the over on the road this season and they get another chance at it tonight. While the Grizzlies and Thunder are two of the better defensive teams in the NBA, the sportsbooks have lowered their total too much for what could end up as a pace-up game.

Grizzlies vs. Thunder

 

The Grizzlies are the dark horses in the Western Conference right now. One trade and Chandler Parsons getting it going would send this team to pretender to contender. They are already good, but one more veteran like Wilson Chandler or somebody else to score the ball would be huge for this team.

However, tonight they are going to win or lose because of their defense. However, either way it goes tonight, I really like the over for these two teams tonight.

Memphis has been great at cashing the over on the road. They are 18-8 cashing the over on the road and while they have cashed the under in their last two meetings against one another this season, Memphis is on a streak of cashing the over in four straight games.

Considering both of these teams rank inside the top eight teams in defensive efficiency this season, on the surface the under looks like the play. In conference games this season, these two teams have combined to cash the under at 33-27-1.

However, as a road favorite this season, the Grizzlies are 8-1 cashing the over. Considering the Thunder are allowing over 109 points per game over their last five games, it’s a fine time to take advantage of the total in this one.
