    The Memphis Grizzlies haven't lost back-to-back home games this season, which is important to consider when making your NBA picks on Wednesday as they take on the Utah Jazz at FedExForum.

    NBA handicappers will find that the Grizzlies are four-point home favorites in the pro basketball odds (courtesy of SBR Forum), while the total stands at 180 in the market.

    Let's take a closer look at this Western Conference matchup from a betting perspective, while offering up an against-the-spread pick along the way.

Utah Jazz

    The Utah Jazz have won four of their last five games, including a 96-80 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves as 4.5-point road favorites on Monday.

    Sports bettors will find that the Jazz are 2-11 straight up and 5-7-1 against the spread as road underdogs of 3.5 to six points this season. 

Memphis Grizzlies
