Milwaukee Bucks vs Memphis Grizzlies: Betting Tips, Prediction & Betting Odds

I’m expecting a big sigh of relief on the faces of the Milwaukee Bucks players after tonight’s game, as they finally get to rest for a week and recalibrate for the remaining 30 or so games of the regular season. Despite ranking 3rd in the East, the first half of the season for the Bucks was a turbulent one, I’m expecting things to settle in and stabilize after the break. But, before the break they still have one more game left, tonight in Memphis against the shorthanded Grizzlies. Khris Middleton has been out for a while, he is not expected back for this one. Damian Lillard and Giannis Antetokounmpo are both listed as game time decisions, but should be able to play. The Bucks are 11.5 point favorites, the line opened at 9.5 points which would indicate plenty of action on the road team here.

From a bettors perspective the Grizzlies have actually performed well lately, covering the spread in 9 of their last 13 games. However, they were just on a 9-game losing streak which ended last night in a 121-113 win over the Houston Rockets. It was a total team effort with 3 starters and 3 bench players all scoring in double-figures, as a unit the Grizzlies knocked down 15 threes in the win. However, those type of performances have been rare to come by, especially in home games where they are only 1-5 SU in their last 6 played. This being a 2nd game of a back-to-back also isn’t helpful, in this scenario the Grizzlies have only 1 win in 9 games played. Eastern Conference opponents have beaten them in 6 straight, this team will be in full on tank mode the rest of the season.

Milwaukee Bucks Point Spread Prediction

Milwaukee Bucks -11.5 Point Spread is available at -110 odds

Prior to the sub-par performance vs Miami where they lost by 26 points, the Bucks actually had a run of back-to-back win by double-digits. That game was a 2nd night of a back-to-back, so I wouldn’t hold it against them coming into tonight’s game. They’re the more rested team here, plus the discrepancy n talent is just too big. Because of this I’m backing the Bucks to cover.

Bucks vs Grizzlies Total Points Prediction: Over 225

Over 225 Total Points is available at -110 odds

I actually had to double-check the projected total set for tonight’s game, it’s at a pretty low 225 points which seems like an easy target to surpass for these two teams. The last 10 meetings have been high scoring with an average of 233.6 points per game scored, the O/U record during that period is 6-4. Yes, there have been improvements defensively by the Bucks lately and yes they have gone under in 8 of their last 9 games, however that’s only due to the fact that the oddsmakers are setting their totals way too high. Milwaukee still ranks 5th in pace, averaging over 102 possessions per game. They’re also the 5th most efficient offense in the NBA, with an average of 119.1 points per 100 possessions scored. The numbers of the Grizzlies won’t blow you away, but this team has shown on occasions they are capable of putting up big numbers. They’ve scored at least 110 points in 3 of their last 5 games, and after last night’s hot shooting performance from downtown, who is to say they won’t be able to repeat that once again here? I’m going for the over in this game.
