The Memphis Grizzlies play host to the Milwaukee Bucks at the FedExForum on Thursday night.

The Milwaukee Bucks have been in great form as they’ve won eight of their last 10 games overall and they will be eager to stay hot after routing the Warriors in an impressive 128-111 home win on Tuesday. Giannis Antetokounmpo led the way with 30 points, 12 rebounds and five assists, Khris Middleton added 20 points while Bobby Portis provided the spark off the bench with 25 points and 11 rebounds on 11 of 15 shooting. As a team, the Bucks shot a healthy 54 percent from the field and 12 of 29 from the 3-point line as they dominated the paint right from the start and set the tone with 38 points in the first quarter, before they made another push in the third quarter to push the lead out to 26 points.

Meanwhile, the Memphis Grizzlies have been on a nice run as they’ve won eight of their last nine games and they will be gunning for a seventh straight victory after blowing out the Hawks in a 128-103 win on Monday. Tyus Jones led the way with 22 points and 11 assists, Dillon Brooks added 18 points, Santi Aldama added 16 points off the bench while Jaren Jackson Jr chipped in with 15 points. As a team, the Grizzlies shot a sizzling 60 percent from the field and 13 of 32 from the 3-point line as they jumped all over the Hawks early to take an 11-point lead into halftime, before they exploded for 40 points int the third quarter to lead by as many as 34 points.

Looking at the betting trends, the Bucks are 1-4-2 ATS in their last seven road games, 4-0-2 ATS in their last six games against a team with a winning record and 5-2 ATS in their last seven games against a team above .600. The Grizzlies are 35-15-1 ATS in their last 51 home games, 16-7 ATS in their last 23 games against a team above .600 and 5-0-1 ATS in their last six games overall.

Head to head, the under is 4-1 in the last five meetings in Memphis and the Bucks are 1-4 ATS in the last five meetings overall.

The Bucks are going to be shorthanded once again as Jrue Holiday is still out with an illness, while the Grizzlies are still without Desmond Bane for at least another two weeks. Both teams are coming into this meeting with plenty of momentum, but the Bucks will miss Holiday who would have had a major role of guarding Ja Morant in this matchup. You can make an argument for either side here, but the Bucks are only 1-4-2 ATS in their last seven road games while the Grizzlies are 35-15-1 ATS in their last 51 home games. The Grizzlies have also had an extra day of rest, so I’ll lean towards the Grizzlies at home in this spot.
