Detroit Pistons at Memphis Grizzlies, 8 pm Eastern
The Pick: Memphis -12.5 (-112), bet $22.40 to win $20
Memphis is 12-7 as a favorite this season, while Detroit is 6-28 as an underdog. The Grizzlies are 5-1 against the spread in their last six, have won five straight, and have their star guard Ja Morant back playing harder than ever. Morant is averaging 25.1 points per game, up from his career average of 19.6. He’s rising every single day. Quite simply, Memphis is making their case as a playoff contender by going 100% in every game; they just don’t know any other way. The Pistons are a young team with positive signs but are 1-5 in their last six on the road, and right now they’re without their best player, Jerami Grant. The Grizzlies continue to make noise tonight.
