The situation and the NBA betting odds favor Toronto since Memphis had to play last night at home vs. Phoenix while Toronto is rested.
Basketball betting trends do favor Memphis though as they have won six of the last ten in this series against Toronto and they are 6-3-1 against the spread. This series has pretty much been all about the home team. Seven of the last eight games between the two have been one by the home squad. Toronto has won three of the last four at home against Memphis. The teams met early this season back in late October as the Grizzlies won 115-107 at home in basketball betting. Zach Randolph had 30 points in that victory for the Grizzlies while the Raptors were led by Chris Bosh who had 37 points and 12 rebounds. Eight of the last ten in this series have gone under the total.
Memphis has been very good against the Eastern Conference and they have been solid against the Atlantic Division as well. The Grizzlies are 21-8-1 in NBA betting in their last 30 vs. the Eastern Conference. The Grizzlies are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 vs. the Atlantic. The problem for Memphis is that they are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games playing on no rest. They are also just 12-13 on the road this season vs. the basketball betting pointspread.
Toronto has been very good of late as they are 6-0 in basketball betting in their last 6 vs. the Western Conference. The Raptors are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 vs. the Southwest Division. Toronto is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 home games. The Raptors have won eight of their last nine overall. The Raptors are 16-10 at home this season in NBA betting.
The last six Memphis games against the Atlantic Division have gone over the basketball betting total. On the road, 19 of their last 26 games have gone over the NBA betting total. The Grizzlies also go over when playing in back-to-backs as they have gone over in 9 of their last 13 with no rest. Five of the last six Toronto home games have gone over the total. The last six meetings between the Grizzlies and Raptors in Toronto have gone under the total and in this series overall, 16 of the last 19 have gone under in basketball betting.
