New Orleans is 14-29 SU and 23-20 ATS; it's coming off a 100-82 loss vs. Houston as a 2.5 point fav on the 25th.
The Hornets are struggling once again, and have failed to reach the 100 point plateau in their last eight vs. Memphis.
They really struggled vs. the Rockets, shooting just under 39% from the floor, and were a deplorable 3 for 20 from behind the arc.
It's interesting to note that New Orleans is 0-3 ATS this year vs. good defensive teams that allow 91 points or less per contest.
Memphis is 28-14 SU and 25-16-1 ATS; it's coming off a 101-77 win over Brooklyn as a 4 point favorite on the 25th.
The Grizzlies are firing on all cylinders right now, both on the defensive and offensive ends of the floor, and they'll be looking to win for their fifth time in six games tonight.
Memphis has been getting it done all year with tough defensive play, allowing 89.2 PPG; it's been even better of late, allowing just 79.4 over its past five.
One person you'll want to keep your eyes on is Rudy happy who has averaged 26 points on 57.1% shooting in his last three vs. the Hornets.
Note that not only is Memphis 14-7 ATS in front of the home town crowd, but it's also 19-11 ATS as a favorite this year.
No need to overanalyze this selection as these two teams are clearly moving in opposite directions. Expect the home side to take full advantage of the struggling Hornets, and to pull away down the stretch for the comfortable ATS cover!
