The Grizzlies are 17-5 ATS in their last 22 Monday games and 3-9 ATS in their last 12 road games. The Mavericks are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The under is 16-5-1 in Grizzlies last 22 overall. The over is 3-0-1 in Mavericks last 4 home games. The Grizzlies are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Dallas and 0-5 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
The Dallas Mavericks may be without Luka and Kyrie and that’s why this line has dropped a lot. However, the Memphis Grizzlies have injuries and questionable players of their own, and they’ve been terrible on the road over the last month or so. The Mavs win at home by an average of 4.5 points. Give me the home dog.
