Warriors are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a SU loss of more than 10 points.

Over is 4-0 in Warriors last 4 games following a S.U. loss.

Under is 10-4 in Grizzlies last 14 games following a S.U. loss.
Warriors are 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings.
Road team is 6-0 ATS in the last 6 meetings.
My Prediction: The Grizzlies have lost 3 of 4 since trading away Rudy Gay including an embarrassing home loss to Phoenix on Tuesday. The Warriors are in the middle of a tough four game road trip in which they have been blown out in their first two contests. Memphis has won both meetings this season (both in California), but the road team has covered 6 in a row in this series. I like the Warriors to get back on track tonight.
