Wizards VS Grizzlies Free Pick

All-Star break is over, the second half is beginning and we are really going to find out if some of these performances from the first half were flukes or not? One of those teams needing to prove that is the Washington Wizards who finished the half off by winning 7 of their final 10. They face the Grizzlies Wednesday night who are right at .500 and 5 and 5 in their last 10. On paper, both these teams have decent offenses but the total has not been hit recently for them. Total is set at 238 which is a high number for the first game in almost a week.
First off - thank god the All-Star weekend is over, thankful for that. Second, I'm thankful this total is so high for two teams that aren't over 500 when it comes to hitting the number. The Wizards are 1 of their last five when it comes to hitting the OVER and the Grizzlies have hit the UNDER in each of their last six games. Vegas must be sleeping on this game because the number posted makes no sense. Washington is averaging 114 a game and Memphis gets 111 a game. The defensive numbers don't entice a scary scoring performance by either side as well. This number really should be at maybe 225 but certainly not 238 -- I love the UNDER here and will be taking it.
Prediction: Wizards 113 Grizzlies 116
