Sam Martin's 15* NBA BLOWOUT OF THE WEEK!!: Congrats to all that joined the Whiz Kid last night in his 37-POINT BLOWOUT WINNER ON MILWAUKEE!! That was Sam's lone play yesterday, and while the Whiz Kid has a HUGE NCAA TOURNAMENT GAME OF THE YEAR TODAY, he's not ignoring the NBA with one winner - his 15* BLOWOUT OF THE WEEK!!
Game: Memphis Grizzlies at Milwaukee Bucks Mar 31 2012 8:35PM
Prediction: Milwaukee Bucks
Grade: Loser (-110)
Reason: 15* Play on Milwaukee. We took an easy winner on Milwaukee last night in their 37-point blowout win at Cleveland, and we'll back them again here tonight against another weak offensive club in Memphis. We stated in yesterday's handicapping report that the matchup of Milwaukee's high-octane offense against a struggling Cavs scoring unit was just too much for Cleveland to overcome, and we looked for the Bucks to run right past them in a big win. That's exactly what we expect again here tonight, and while a double-digit victory might be a bit too much to ask for, we do look for Milwaukee to cover this pointspread with ease.
The Bucks have now scored at least 104 points in 11 of their 13 games overall, and here they face a Memphis club that has been held to 93 points or less in four of their last five contests (two of those games being held to under 90 points). And while the Grizzlies are inconsistent offensively, they are also struggling on the other end of the court, allowing three of their last seven foes to shoot 50% or better from the floor. All the motivation lies with the home side here, with the Bucks chasing down New York for the eighth and final playoff spot in the East, and as we said yesterday this stretch of the schedule features some winnable games that we look for the Bucks to take advantage of. Offense dominant once again as Milwaukee out-runs Memphis! 15* Play on Milwaukee.
