In this battle between two teams sitting on the bottom-four places of their respective conference, the Atlanta Hawks (23-45), looking to turn their latest victory into a streak, are hosting the Memphis Grizzlies (28-40), who on the other hand have won only once in their last 5 games and want to bounce back today.

Spread: Atlanta Hawks -1
Atlanta Hawks have a 23-45 record (33-35 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the 12th place of the East. In their last game they snapped a three-game losing streak by winning at home against the Pelicans with a 128-116 score, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by John Collins with 19.8 ppg, adding a team high 9.8 boards per game but he is out with an injury. He is followed by Trae Young with 18.2 ppg and a team high 7.8 dimes per game.
Memphis Grizzlies have a 28-40 record (32-36 against the spread) so far this season and are currently tied with the Mavericks in the second to last place of the West. They have won four of their last five matches and in their last game they won at home against the Magic with a 105-97 score, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Mike Conley with 20.6 ppg, adding a team high 6.3 dimes per game. He is followed by Jonas Valanciunas with 18.5 ppg and a team high 8.8 boards per game.
In their previous meeting earlier this season the Grizzlies won at home with a 131-117 score. Hawks have a 12-21 home record, while the Grizzlies are 10-23 on the road. Hawks are better offensively, scoring 112.4 ppg to Grizzlies’ 101.6, while Grizzlies are better defensively, allowing 103.7 ppg to Hawks’ 118.7 ppg. Both teams have almost identical field goal percentage (45.1% to 45%), while Hawks have a better 3-point percentage (35.2% to 33.7%). Hawks are better in boards grabbed (45.9 to 41) and in dimes made (25.5 to 23.6), while Grizzlies are better in turnovers committed (13.3 to 17.2). Grizzlies are playing much better lately and while Vegas odds give the Hawks a -1 spread, don’t expect them to beat the odds and pick the guests in this one.
