Cavaliers at Grizzlies picks and predictions
Grizzlies 113, Cavaliers 101
The Grizzlies (-280) will cost you nearly 3 times your potential return, and that’s too expensive, even for a red-hot team on a 10-game winning streak.
Against the spread
The GRIZZLIES -6.5 (-120) have cashed in 7 of the team’s 10 games during the win streak. This play comes with a little risk, going 1-3 ATS in the last 4 games at home.
The Cavaliers are 3-4 ATS in their last 7 road games.
UNDER 223.5 (-105) is the lean, but play a half-unit at best.
For the Cavs, the Under has hit in the last 2 outings, while going 5-4 in the last 9 outings overall. The Under has split 3-3 in the previous 6 on the road, too.
The real reason to play the Under, though, is due to the health status for Mitchell. “Spida” leads the team in scoring, but his groin injury has him listed as doubtful, and that’s bad news for the prospects of a Cleveland cover, and for the prospects of any offense for the Cavs.
