NBA Odds and Prediction: Memphis Grizzlies vs Milwaukee Bucks

NBA Odds and Prediction: Memphis Grizzlies vs Milwaukee Bucks
With the NHL dark for their annual All Star break, and Super Bowl 50 still ten sleeps away, we turn to the National Basketball Association for our free pick prediction today. Of the six games on the SportsInteraction NBA betting board we are focused in on the Memphis Grizzlies vs Milwaukee Bucks battle. The Grizzlies have recovered from a slow start and are starting to roll while the Bucks have been largely inconsistent all season long. Game time is slated for 8:05 PM ET on January 28, 2016, at the FedExForum in Memphis, Tennessee.

Memphis Grizzlies: Home cooking as aided a red-hot run 

Mediocre at best out of the starting gate, Memphis closed out the 2015 portion of their 2015-16 NBA schedule with a 18-16 record, the Grizzlies have picked up the pace in the New Year. January has spurred an awakening for the Grizzlies as Memphis has posted an 8-4 mark over twelve games this month. Home cooking has helped as the Grizzlies are 6-1 at the FedExForum during the New Year and they are 11-1 over their last twelve matches at home. While Memphis needs to work on their 26th ranked scoring offense, that’s averaging 96.8 PPG, defense is the M.O. for the Grizzlies as their 99.0 PPG allowed is the sixth best mark in the league. Memphis is 17-7 at home this year.

Milwaukee Bucks: Haven’t been able to build on their success from last season

Although the NBA Eastern Conference was fairly weak, Milwaukee posted a 41-41 record and earned the #6 seed in the playoffs last season. It was a remarkable turn around after the Bucks finished last in the league with 15-67 mark during the previous season – the worst record in their 46-year franchise history. The losing ways have returned however as Milwaukee is 20-27 and sit 13th overall in the Eastern Conference – though just four points out of a playoff spot. The Bucks have been somewhat better recently, with a 7-6 record in the New Year, and they are coming off a 107-100 home win over Orlando on Tuesday night. At 7-20 Milwaukee melts on the road.

Milwaukee vs Memphis NBA Prediction: The Home of the Blues hasn’t been kind to the Bucks recently as they are 0-4 in Memphis dating back to November 22, 2009. That said, the venue hasn’t really mattered at all as the Grizzlies have mauled Milwaukee while winning eight of the last nine matches. We have a strength vs strength battle here as the Bucks NBA best 49.3 PPG scored in the paint will be challenged by the Grizzlies who are holding opponents to a league low 37.9 PPG inside the key. Make some hay with Memphis and a five-unit wager on the money line price posted on the NBA betting board at SportsInteraction. Click the odds image below for Live NBA action.
