NBA Betting Trends


The Nuggets are 2-5-1 ATS in their last eight games overall. Denver is 1-4 ATS in its last five versus the Western Conference.


The Grizzlies are 20-7 ATS in their last 27 games versus the Northwest Division. Memphis is 5-2 ATS in its last seven Sunday games.


Memphis is coming off a very nice nice as home dogs, but I am not prepared to go to the well again. The Nuggets had an extra day of rest and have a deep roster that can exploit the youth of the Grizzlies. Memphis has been inconsistent and I don't like its chances to stay in this contest against a strong defensive team that is also very efficient offensively.
