The Grizzlies are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 19-7 ATS in their last 26 games overall. The Bucks are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 Saturday games. The over is 5-1 in Grizzlies last 6 overall. The over is 6-1 in Bucks last 7 home games. The under is 6-2-1 in the last 9 meetings in Milwaukee and 13-6-1 in the last 20 meetings.
The Milwaukee Bucks are the better team and are capable of blowing the doors off opponents when healthy, but this is a lot of points to lay. The Memphis Grizzlies have played their best ball on the road where they win by an average of 4.7 points and they lose in the underdog role by an average of just 2.1 points. The Grizzlies are 15-9 against the spread on the road. Give me the Grizzlies and the free points, as it's too many to leave on the table.
