Memphis Grizzlies have a 24-38 record (27-35 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the second to last place of the West.

Chicago Bulls have a 16-45 record (27-33-1 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the third to last place of the East. In their last game they saw a three-game winning streak getting snapped by losing at home against the Bucks with a 106-117 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Zach LaVine with 23.1 ppg, adding 4.6 boards and 4.5 dimes per game. He is followed by Lauri Markkanen with 19.3 ppg and a team high 9.1 boards per game.
In their previous meeting earlier this season the Bulls won at home with a 122-110 score. Grizzlies have a 15-16 home record, while the Bulls are 9-20 on the road. Bulls are better offensively, scoring 103.7 ppg to Grizzlies’ 100.9, while Grizzlies are better defensively, allowing 104.1 ppg to Bulls’ 111.7. Both teams have almost identical field goal percentage (45.2% to 44.8%), while Bulls have a better 3-point percentage (35.5% to 33.4%). They are also better in boards grabbed (42.2 to 40.7), while Grizzlies are better both in dimes made (23.4 to 22.1) and in turnovers committed (13.2 to 13.7). Grizzlies are the favorite at home and Vegas odds give them a -3.5 spread and expect them to beat the odds for the win tonight.
