Prediction

Grizzlies 124, Thunder 109

Money line

PASS on the money line.

You just can’t place a single bet and wager 11 times what you can win to bet on the Grizzlies and you shouldn’t bet the Thunder when they only have nine home wins all season and have been getting blown out in every game over the last four games.

You could use the Grizzlies on the money line in a parlay bet, but that is all that is worth it. The Thunder have the second-fewest home wins in the league. The Grizzlies, at 22-12 on the road, have the second-most road victories.
