According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Rockets are set as a 6.5-point favorite on the spread line. The over-under is 211 points.

Memphis comes in with a 7-4 record after a 98-97 win at the Trail Blazers. Houston is 9-3 following its fourth straight victory, a 117-113 home triumph over the Cavaliers. The two teams have already met twice this season with the Grizzlies winning straight up and ATS both times. The under went 2-0.

In the win at Portland, Mike Conley led the way with 20 points and six assists. Tyreke Evans had 21 points and five assists off the bench. Marc Gasol added 16 points, five rebounds and four assists. Memphis forced a missed 3-pointer by the Blazers in the closing seconds to hold on.

Houston was paced by James Harden in the win over Cleveland as he tallied a triple-double with 35 points, 13 assists and 11 rebounds. He also became the first player in NBA history to make at least six 3-pointers in four straight games. Eric Gordon scored 20 points, while Clint Capela added 19 points and 13 rebounds. The Rockets trailed by two at halftime, but outscored the Cavs 35-26 in the third quarter.

The under is 25-11 in the last 36 meetings in Houston. Memphis is 4-0 ATS in its last four Saturday games.

Grizzlies vs. Rockets Pick

Harden has been on a tear recently, but Memphis has had Houston's number this season and is one of the best defensive teams in the NBA. Look for the Grizzlies to at least stay within the number even if they don't win straight up. Take the visitors in this spot.
