Head to head the Grizzlies are 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meeting, but are an impressive 7-3 ATS in their last 10 in Milwaukee. The underdog and the road team have had the advantage in this matchup as well as they are both 8-1 ATS in the last 9 between the two teams. The Bucks are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games and in their last 14 games ATS they are 11-3 overall. The Bucks are however just 4-11 ATS in their last 15 games overall vs. teams with a winning record. The Grizzlies are a stunning 23-4 ATS in their last 27 games played on 0 days rest, but just 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games. Overall in their last 9 they are 2-7 ATS.
The Grizzlies posted back to back wins recently vs. the Lakers and Timberwolves and it looked as though they were climbing their way back into the playoff picture. A loss to the Rockets last night though may be a sign that there are still some problems plaguing the Grizzlies. While the Grizzlies still sit in 6th place overall in the West, they are just 1.5 games up on the 9th place Jazz. With the margin for error very small the Grizzlies are hoping they turn things around for good sooner rather than later. The Bucks are coming off of a blowout win vs. the Cavaliers last night by a score of 121-84. The Bucks are winners of 7 of 10 overall and are in back of the Knicks for the last playoff spot in the East by 1.5 games.
We expected the Grizz to win last night in Houston, but in the end they were outclassed by the Rockets. Milwaukee is just playing more inspired basketball right now and they are focused on that 8th playoff spot in the East. This will be a hotly contested game as both need the win for obvious reasons, but in the end we will go with the home team in the Bucks so prior to betting read a sports book review.
