NBA Odds: Pelicans vs. Grizzlies
|Time | Channel||8 p.m. ET | TNT|
On Tuesday night, the New Orleans Pelicans head to Memphis to take on the Grizzlies in a matchup of exciting, young squads.
Neither squad has been great against the spread (ATS) this season, but the Grizzlies come in confident after a 14-point win over the Kings in which they were 1.5-point road dogs.
Meanwhile, the Pelicans have lost three straight games by double-digits, two in which they were favorites.
Despite the Pelicans’ current troubles and the majority support for the Grizzlies on Tuesday night, our PRO Report suggests that sharp bettors don’t see eye-to-eye with the public on this game, making the Pelicans the side to consider.
Let’s take a closer look.

The fact that a Pelicans team on a losing streak is drawing the bigger bets is a sign that sharps have already decided who is the right pick in what should be a close contest.
Our PRO Systems support the sharp action on the Pelicans side as well.
