The Milwaukee Bucks (27-19) host the Memphis Grizzlies (31-15) for a Wednesday night matchup at the Fiserv Forum. The Grizzlies come into this matchup having won 12 of their last 13 games, while the Bucks have hit a rough patch after losing 12 of their last 13. These teams have met up twice in the regular season so far and have split their matchups, which makes this encounter one to watch.

Meanwhile, the Milwaukee Bucks have seen the wheels fall off as of late, losing four of their last five contests despite strong play from Giannis Antetokuounmpo and Khris Middleton, who combined for 61 points against the Atlanta Hawks in their last game.

Milwaukee has been hit or miss over their last two weeks, and the Grizzlies are playing hard. The Bucks are 1-4 ATS in their last five games and need a win to boost them in the Eastern Conference.

Overall, the Bucks have relied heavily on the Greek Freak 31.6 points in January but have five losses and just three wins to show for it. The team is averaging 111.7 points per game on 45.4 percent shooting and are conceding 108 points on 43.8 percent shooting. Giannis is the leader averaging 28.5 points and 11.2 rebounds, while Khris Middleton has chipped in 19.6 points.

The Memphis Grizzlies recently saw their eleven-game winning streak come to an end against the Dallas Mavericks but got a nice rebound win with an impressive victory over the Chicago Bulls 119-110 on Monday. Ja Morant and Desmond Bane led the way combing for 49 points.

Memphis has been one of the most surprising teams in the Western Conference sitting third overall with 31 wins. This is no longer a bottom seed team as they are exceeding expectations, as evidenced by their winning streak that included wins over the Warriors, Nets, and Lakers.

Overall, the Grizzlies are averaging 111.8 points per game on 45.5 percent shooting and are conceding 107.9 points on 45.1 percent shooting. Memphis owns three double-digit scorers, including Ja Morant, who is averaging 24.4 points and 6.7 assists.

I’m not sure how the Milwaukee Bucks are favored in this one. The Memphis Grizzlies are playing better basketball overall and have showcased that by winning 12 of their last 13 contests. Despite having the Greek Freak, the Bucks have completely collapsed as of late, dropping six of their last eight.

The Bucks are 8-14 ATS as the home team this year, and the Grizzlies have covered 12 times in their last 13 road games. Memphis has a young core, but Taylor Jenkins has this team completely clicking on all cylinders. I think the Grizzlies win this one outright rather easily. Back the Grizzlies here.
