The 76ers are 34-15-2 ATS in their last 51 home games and 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 games playing on 0 days rest. The over is 5-2 in Grizzlies last 7 overall. The under is 5-1 in 76ers last 6 overall. The Grizzlies are 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Philadelphia.
The Memphis Grizzlies have the rest advantage and have played some of their best ball on the road this season, but they're an inconsistent team overall and not a club I'm thrilled to back against some of the better teams in the league. The Philadelphia 76ers may be on the end of a back to back, but they're as healthy as they've been in a while and they win at home by an average of eight points. I need more buckets to consider the Grizzlies here. Give me the 76ers.
