Point Spread: 8.50 | -105.00 Memphis (Away)
Outright win? Very possible! The Grizzlies come in on top form, as they won both their "play in" contests, after losing to Golden State in their regular-season finale. Memphis is a deep team, which I think will help it here in Game 1. Utah earned the No. 1 seed after going 52-20 in the regular season. The big question though is, will rest lead to rust? Note that the Grizzlies are 9-2 ATS in their last 11 as an underdog, while the Jazz are just 3-7 ATS in their last ten at home and only 1-5 ATS in their last six playoff games as a favorite. While I do think the outright upset is possible, in the end let's grab the points!
T.M. Prediction: COMING SHORTLY.
