Memphis Grizzlies vs. Toronto Raptors – 2/21/16 NBA Betting Trends and Odds

The Toronto Raptors return to their home confines today as they welcome the Memphis Grizzlies to town at 6PM ET. Here’s a breakdown of the matchup.

According to oddsmakers at RealBets, the Raptors are favored at home tonight, as they are getting odds of -8.5 points against the Grizz. The over/under total for tonight’s game is listed at 201.5 points.

Toronto (35-18, 29-24 ATS) has been solid at home this year, going 18-6 straight up and 13-11 against the spread. They are just wrapping up a six-game road trip that saw them go 3-3 overall. Being back at home should be a good boost, as they face a tough Memphis team that is 32-22 overall and 27-26-1 against the spread. The Grizz haven’t fared too well away from home, going just 12-13 overall and 12-12-1 against the spread.

Memphis has had some recent road success, winning and covering in their last three with stops in Brooklyn, New York and New Orleans.

Despite that, playing on 1 day of rest hasn’t benefited Memphis too much. The Grizzlies are just 13-18-1 against the spread in this situation while Toronto is 18-15 ATS. Memphis also has some injury concerns with Marc Gasol out for the rest of the season and Tony Allen questionable to play today with a knee injury. Memphis may not have the depth to contend with Toronto at home on short rest.
