After three games on the road, the Milwaukee Bucks are heading back home. They will take on the Memphis Grizzlies at 9 p.m. ET this past Saturday at Fiserv Forum. Memphis will need to watch out since the Bucks have now posted big point totals in their last three contests.
Milwaukee didn't have too much trouble with the Atlanta Hawks on the road this past Thursday as they won 120-109. It was another big night for Milwaukee's point guard Jrue Holiday, who had 23 points and seven assists.
Meanwhile, it was all tied up 57-57 at the half for the Grizz and the Chicago Bulls this past Friday, but Memphis stepped up in the second half for a 126-115 victory. Small forward Dillon Brooks was the offensive standout of the game for Memphis, picking up 32 points.
The Bucks are the favorite in this one, with an expected 8.5-point margin of victory. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread as they are currently on a three-game streak of ATS wins.
