The Grizzlies return to FedExForum after picking up a 119-109 loss to the Boston Celtics on the road.

Grizzlies vs. Jazz Prediction & Pick
While the Jazz have won twice in their last three games, those victories came against the Pacers and Toronto Raptors — two sub-.500 teams who often leave a lot to be desired. Now, the Jazz have to take on the Grizzlies, who possess an 82.1% winning percentage at FedExForum this season and have won their last two home games by an average of 18 points.
The Jazz may have beaten the Grizzlies twice this season, but that success happened when the former was the home team. Utah has lost back-to-back road games against Memphis, including a 123-118 loss the last time they met in January.
The Jazz also own the ninth-worst scoring defense on the road (118.5 PPG) and will have a tough time containing the Grizzlies, who tally 118.6 PPG in their own backyard (No. 9).
With the Jazz losing more often than they win on the road, I don't see the Grizzlies' home success being in jeopardy tonight.
Final Score Prediction: Grizzlies: 122 | Jazz: 116
Grizzlies vs. Jazz Best Bet
Even though I see the Grizzlies winning tonight, I can't back them as 10-point favorites. Memphis is only 4-9 ATS in its last 13 games and has failed to cover the spread in five of its last six matchups with the Northwest Division.
Although the Jazz are only 2-4 ATS in their last six games, they've covered the spread in seven of their last 10 meetings with the Grizzlies. Furthermore, Utah is also 8-2 ATS in the last 10 games against a Southwest Division foe.
In a game that could wind up being closer than the odds project, back the Jazz to cover as the +10 underdogs.
Bet: Jazz +10 (-110)
