Preview

The Memphis Grizzlies and Milwaukee Bucks meet Wednesday in NBA action at the Fiserv Forum. The Memphis Grizzlies look for a win after winning 12 of their last 13 games. The Milwaukee Bucks need a win after losing six of their last eight games.

MEMPHIS GRIZZLIES

Memphis opened the month on a seven-game win streak before falling to the Dallas Mavericks on Friday, but bounced back with a 119-106 victory over the Chicago Bulls on Monday in their most recent game. Leading their scoring output in the game was Morant (24.4 ppg), who scored 25 points in the game and was one of two players to score more than 20 points.

Morant and Memphis have been red hot on the road as of late. The Grizzlies have won their past six games away from home dating back to Dec. 26, and the star guard has averaged 25.8 points during the streak.

MILWAUKEE BUCKS

The Bucks have won only 4 of their last 10 games a and 2 of their 5 last games at home.They are coming off a 121-114 road loss to the Atlanta Hawks. The biggest problem that popped up was the fact they allowed the Hawks to shoot 32 free-throw attempts.

Milwaukee likely will be without one of its best defenders Wednesday, as Jrue Holiday has been dealing with an ankle injury that has sidelined him for the past six games. Brook Lopez is also out after back surgery in early December.

BETTING TRENDS

Memphis are 9-1 ATS in their last 10 games and they're 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games on the road. Milwaukee are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games and 0-3 ATS last 3 games vs Grizzlies.

Prediction

The Memphis Grizzlies have been covering machines this season, they lose by an average of just 0.6 points in the underdog role, and they win by an average of 1.1 points on the road. Ja Morant is at his best moment and should be able to keep the Grizzlies in the game. Take Memphis to cover the spread.

PICK: GRIZZLIES +6.5 (-110)
