The Memphis Grizzlies own the longest winning streak in the NBA at the moment, picking up their seventh straight win on Tuesday night against the Orlando Magic.

Memphis is back in action on Wednesday, hosting the Los Angeles Clippers, and the team will get guard Ja Morant back in the lineup for this matchup.

That’s a huge lift for the Grizz, and they should have the advantage over the Clippers who are without Paul George and Marcus Morris Sr. in this matchup. Norman Powell, who has missed several games with a shoulder injury, is listed as questionable.

Memphis is 6-4 ATS on the second night of a back-to-back this season, and it comes into this game as a favorite at home. The Grizzlies have dominated at home, going 33-5 straight up this season.

Here’s how to bet on this game and the latest odds for the Grizzlies-Clippers matchup:

Clippers vs. Grizzlies prediction and pick

This will be the 21st time this season the Clippers will take the floor with George out of the lineup, and they’ve gone 8-12 straight up in their previous 20 games.

The Clippers are 9-8 against the spread as road underdogs this season, and they’re actually over .500 on the road (19-18).

Despite that, I still think the Grizzlies are the team to bet on in this matchup.

Memphis failed to cover on Tuesday night as a seven-point favorite against the Magic, but with Morant back in the lineup the team should have more offensive power to handle the Clippers tonight.

The Grizzlies are a dominant 9-1 in their last 10 games, and the team is 18-15-1 ATS as a home favorite, winning those games by an average margin of 11.1 points per game.

Now that Memphis has a three-game cushion on the Sacramento Kings for the No. 2 seed, I think the team wants to lock that spot up as soon as possible to rest any players that are banged up in the final games of the season. Taking down Los Angeles would be a huge step towards that goal.
