Memphis Grizzlies vs New Orleans Pelicans prediction

The Memphis Grizzlies are watching their season unravel as they’ve lost 5 straight games and have failed to cover all of those games as well. The New Orleans Pelicans are racking up the wins now that they’re healthy, and they’re quietly a profitable 16-10-1 ATS on the season. With all that said, Ja Morant is expected to return, giving the Grizzlies their best player for the first time and an instant spark on the offensive side where they’ve struggled all year. I’m sure it will take Morant time to really return to all star form, but there’s going to be value with the Grizz in the underdog role now that they have their best player. Give me the points.
