The Oakland Golden Grizzlies are one of the worst defensive teams in the country and have yet to win a game, but they've covered five of their last seven contests, which is all we care about.

Bottom line here is I'm not laying chalk with either of these clubs. It's Oakland and the points or pass for me.
