Milwaukee Bucks DFS Notes

Giannis Antetokounmpo registered 27 points, eight boards, three assists, a steal and two blocks but it wasn't enough as the Bucks lost 128-97 to the Nuggets. Giannis did most of his damage in the first two frames when he scored 19 points but Nikole Jokic (37/10/11) and the Nuggets were too much for the Bucks. Still, the Greek Freak made 10-of-15 field goals and 7-of-10 free throws in 33 minutes. He missed all three of his shots from the perimeter but did swat a couple of shots in the loss.

Memphis Grizzlies DFS Notes

Ja Morant tallied 35 points (11-of-18 FGs, 11-of-14 FTs), five rebounds, 10 assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes Tuesday vs. the Wizards. Washington didn’t have an answer for Morant, whose 35 points are the most that he’s scored in a game since he went off for 44 in the season opener against the Spurs. Scoring at least 30 points for the third time, the second-year point guard registered his first career 30/10 game Tuesday night. Morant is still well outside of the top-100 in 9-cat for the season, with turnovers being the reason why. Averaging 2.8 turnovers per night, he was responsible for four in Tuesday’s win. That being said, Morant's overall stat line more than made up for that high turnover tally.

Bucks vs. Grizzlies Game Prediction

The under is 5-1 in the Bucks’ last six games following a loss of more than 10 points and is 4-1 in their last five games coming off a loss. On the other side, the under is a perfect 5-0 in the Grizzlies’ last five games overall, is 4-0 in their last four games as an underdog and is 4-0 in their last four games playing on one day of rest.
