Toronto enters with a 15-7 overall record and 12-10-0 ATS after a 126-113 home win over the Suns, its fourth straight victory. Memphis is 8-16 overall and 8-15-1 ATS following a 99-88 loss at the Knicks. The Raptors went 1-1 straight up and 2-0 ATS in two meetings last season. The over-under went 1-1.

Bet on Raptors vs. Grizzlies

Toronto is playing really good basketball right now, led as usual by Lowry and DeRozan. But this spread seems a bit too high on the road. Yes, the Grizzlies are struggling but they are also always well-prepared and have posted five of their eight victories at home. Expect the Grizzlies to bounce back from a poor performance at the Knicks to cover the spread tonight.
