Milwaukee has had two days off since its last game and now visits a Memphis team riding a 17-game losing streak. Don't expect that skid to end tonight.

The Bucks have been very good on the road this season, posting an ATS record of 16-14-1. However, they have been even better as road favorites, and it's likely the Grizzlies' losing streak will reach 18 games tonight.

Milwaukee is 6-2 ATS as road favorites this season, and they should have little problem knocking off the Grizzlies with so many injuries on Memphis’ side. Tyreke Evans, Mario Chalmers, and Andrew Harrison will be out tonight, and with little experience handling the ball, the Grizzlies are going to have a lot of trouble trying to beat Milwaukee's wing defense.

The last time these teams met, Memphis' Mike Conley was in action; now he is out for the remainder of the season. That is a big switch from their first matchup, especially considering the Grizzlies are trying to lose.

Memphis, a home underdog on the NBA odds board, faces only two fellow tanking teams the rest of the season. While Marc Gasol could have a big night tonight, the Grizzlies have little chance of winning this one, especially against a Bucks team that is fighting for playoff positioning. With your NBA picks, take Milwaukee and lay the points.
