The new-look New York Knicks looked like the same old Knickerbockers in their season-opening loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers, but they’ll have a chance to add to the win column against the Memphis Grizzlies at Madison Square Garden on Saturday. Sportsbooks opened the Grizz as 2-point faves with a total of 197.5.
- The total has gone OVER in 12 of the Grizzlies’ last 17 games against the Knicks.
- The Grizzlies are 3-0 SU in their last three games on the road against the Knicks.
- The Grizzlies are 0-6 ATS in their last six road games.
Like most teams, Memphis has easily dispatched New York of late. The Grizzlies are a perfect 6-0 SU in their last six against the Knicks. Their average margin of victory during that span was 11.6 points.
Memphis is mostly healthy now, which means prevailing on the road is going to be key in order for the team to reverse last season’s pitifulness in that area. The Grizzlies ended the 2015-16 campaign on an eight-game road losing streak.
Don’t expect to see Chandler Parsons or Tony Allen participate just yet. The injured duo aren’t expected to see the floor until later next week, head coach David Fizdale announced yesterday.
