Hello NBA fans, today I’ve only got one pick rated one star, so nothing to write home about unfortunately. Let’s have a look at the details!
PICK: Milwaukee Bucks -3.5 vs Memphis Grizzlies (rated 1 star)
Don’t you have a feeling these teams are headed for different directions? The Grizzlies stormed out of the gate with a surprising 5-1 start to the season, but have now gone 2-4 since then. Meanwhile, the Bucks went through a four-game skid before defeating the Spurs in San Antonio and handling the Lakers at home. They are now back to a .500 record and are looking to win a third straight match since acquiring Eric Bledsoe from the Phoenix Suns.
I also like the fact that Memphis will be playing a fifth road game in a row, which takes a toll on the body. From an injury standpoint, the Grizzlies might be in a bit of trouble with JaMychal Green being doubtful and Jarell Martin listed as questionable. Coach David Fizdale might have to go with small lineups more often, which is not good news when you are playing yet another game away from home.
The home team has won each of the previous seven meetings between these two clubs.
Have a good start to your week!
