The Bucks are 9-4 ATS in the last 13 meetings in Memphis and 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings. The over is 5-1-1 in the last 7 meetings.

The Milwaukee Bucks will be without Giannis Antetokounmpo for this contest, but I'm not sure it matters. The Bucks are a deep team that is capable of winning games without their star, and they're expected to have Eric Bledsoe for this game which certainly helps. The Memphis Grizzlies look like a young team that checked out a long time ago, and it's hard to get motivated for a contest when your bags are packed the second the game is finished. The Grizzlies have had little betting value for a while now and have played with little life this whole tournament.

Give me the Bucks and the small number.
