The Golden State Warriors have caught flak all season for how they've performed away from home. However, there's another Western Conference team in the NBA postseason desperately hoping to shake the road blues: the Memphis Grizzlies.

If we're talking Game 6 betting trends vs. the Lakers, Memphis is aiming to pull off a feat it hasn't all season: win a road game as an underdog.

It's true: the Grizzlies do not have a single win this season — regular or postseason — as a road underdog. They are 0-17 straight up and 2-15 against the spread when catching points away from home entering Friday's Game 6 at the Lakers.

In fact, the trend traces all the back to the 2021-22 season.

The last time the Grizzlies won a game as a road underdog was Jan. 21, 2022, against the Nuggets — a span of 24 games.

Memphis is down 3-2 in the first-round series entering Game 6 vs. the Lakers. The Grizz dropped Game 3 in Los Angeles by 10 and the subsequent matchup by six.

Only six teams in the NBA own a positive scoring margin on the road. The Grizzlies, meanwhile, are bottom-10 league-wide, being outscored by an even three points per game away from home this season.

Conversely, the Grizzlies are top-10 in the NBA against the spread at home (23-16-2 ATS, 58.9%).

If they want another opportunity to play in their home confines in Game 7, they'll first have to break one of the ugliest ongoing betting trends in the NBA tonight vs. the Lakers.
