The surprising 13-8 Grizzlies, fresh off a double-overtime win over the Nets on Friday, travel to Philadelphia to take on the 16-8 76ers, who are surging since the Jimmy Butler trade.

Is there any value in the current line? Our analysts dive in.

Mears: Is There Any Value in the Current Line?

This line opened at 76ers -5.5 but has since been bet way up to -7.5. There’s certainly some sharp money on Philly, as the 76ers are getting 48% of the bets but a whopping 87% of the money as of writing (see live data here).

Perhaps that’s partially due due to the status of Grizzlies center Marc Gasol, who is questionable to suit up with a sore right knee. He was questionable before Friday’s game as well but ended up playing 42 minutes.

But our power ratings, even with Gasol playing, peg this around 76ers -7.5 to -8.
