Bet Bucks to Run Over Hapless Grizzlies

It’s a lopsided matchup when the Milwaukee Bucks visit the Memphis Grizzlies just before the NBA All-Star break. Memphis is ravaged by injuries and is essentially fielding a G-League roster. That’s why the spread is 11½ points in favor of Milwaukee. Even if the Bucks are only 9-16 against the spread (ATS) as a visitor, they are the right NBA betting pick given Memphis’ state. Lay it if you’ll play it.

Bucks vs Grizzlies ATS Pick: Bucks -11½

Betting Milwaukee has typically been bad. But we can’t just put money on a bad team like Memphis, a loser of nine of its last 10 games that is also playing without rest. So we’re either betting online on Milwaukee’s spread or just passing. The Bucks are coming off blowout wins over Denver and Charlotte, which points to this team starting to get it right.


One factor is Milwaukee’s defense. It has improved to 113.6, which is top 10 during Doc Rivers’ nine games with the team. Milwaukee held Charlotte to just 84 points and even Denver to just 95. Facing the undermanned and potentially tired Grizzlies, the Bucks can shut the team down.

Milwaukee should start fast as the better-rested team. It will build a big lead and hold on to it by neutralizing the Grizzlies, who score by committee. The Bucks are not always the best NBA bets, but they should get the job done here.
