The Utah Jazz play host to the Memphis Grizzlies at the Vivint Arena on Friday night.
The Memphis Grizzlies have been in great form as they’ve won four of their past five games and they will be gunning for a fourth straight victory after taking down the Thunder in a 116-107 road win on Wednesday. Dillon Brooks led the team with 25 points on eight of 13 shooting, Grayson Allen added 20 points, Jonas Valanciunas scored 16 points with 15 rebounds while Ja Morant scored just 11 points with seven assists. As a team, the Grizzlies shot 47 percent from the field and 11 of 30 from the 3-point line as they fell behind at halftime, before taking control of the game in the third quarter where they outscored the Thunder by 33-20 to take a 17-point lead.
Meanwhile, the Utah Jazz have been in similar form as they’ve won four of their past six games and they will be looking to build on a three-game win streak after routing the depleted Nets in a 118-88 home win on Wednesday. Donovan Mitchell led the team with 27 points and seven assists on 11 of 18 shooting, Bojan Bogdanovic and Mike Conley each scored 18 points while Geroges Niang chipped in with 15 points off the bench. As a team, the Jazz shot 45 percent from the field and 23 of 55 from the 3-point line as they stormed out of the gates to lead by 25 points at halftime, before cruising in the second half where they led by as many as 38 points at one stage.
Looking at the betting trends, the Grizzlies are 3-10 ATS in their last 13 road games against a team with a winning home record and 4-1 ATS in their last five games overall. The Jazz are 15-2 ATS in their last 17 home games, 17-5 ATS in their last 22 games following a win of more than 10 points and 25-10 ATS in their last 35 games overall.

Head to head, the over is 6-1 in the last seven meetings in Utah and the Grizzlies are 5-2 ATS in the last seven meetings in Utah.
The Grizzlies are enjoying a three-game win streak at the moment, but it’s going to take everything they have to get past the red-hot Jazz who just destroyed the shorthanded Nets in their last outing. I want to take the Grizzlies with the points, but they are only 3-10 ATS in their last 13 road games against a team with a winning record, while the Jazz are 15-2 ATS in their last 17 home games. I’m going with the Jazz to win this one by double-digits.
