The betting odds from this NBA contest have the home team Memphis Grizzlies favored by -6 points with an over under line of 179 points. When the odds came out a few hours ago it was Memphis a -6 ½ point favorite with the total set at 179 points. We have seen a ½ point move on the underdog Bulls and no movement on the total.

The teams met twice during the lockout shortened season a year ago with each team winning and covering the point spread in their home game. Trend: Chicago Bulls are 8-2 to under in their past ten games.

The Bulls have won two straight and five of their past six games. They are 6-3 on the road. The edge out Brooklyn on Saturday night 83-82 as a -4 ½ point favorite as the Nets were playing their fourth game in five nights. Without Derrick Rose the Bulls struggle for offense. The defense has led them to wins as they held seven of their past nine opponents under 90 points.

The Grizzlies got off track last week with three straight losses. They rebound on Saturday with a 99-86 road win at the Utah Jazz as a +2 point underdog. Memphis just went through a shooting slump. Rudy Gay leads the team with 19 points a game. Zach Randolph is healthy and contributing with 12 ½ rebounds a game and 51% shooting percentage. They are the number two defense in the NBA by giving up 91 points a game.
