The Draftkings NBA Odds have the Heat listed as a -4 point favorite and the over/under at 217.5 total points. These two teams last faced each other a little less than three weeks ago where Memphis got the 89-85 home win. Both teams played horrendous in that game.

The Heat shot 36% from the field and 23% from 3-point land and the only bright spot was Jimmy Butlers 24 points and them being able to outscore them in the paint by 10 points.

The Grizzlies in that last matchup shot 35% from the field and also 24% from 3-points land, and they only got the win because Ja Morant was able to take the ball the full down court and get the winning layup with a second left on the clock.

Miami played five games in seven days when facing Memphis, so this go around it should be a different outcome since the Heat will be playing at home off 3 days of rest.

The Memphis Grizzlies are 24-23 overall this season and currently sitting in the last playoff spot in the Western Conference after picking up their last two wins in a row against the Timberwolves and the 76ers. They’ll be looking to continue that momentum and make it 3 in a row. Ja Morant in the last matchup verse the Heat, went 5 of 15 from the field, and 0-5 from 3-point land for a total of only 13 points, so look for him to have a much better game overall and put up at least 18 points.

Justise Winslow will missed the last four games and is listed as questionable due to his quad injury. The Grizzlies on the road this season have the sixth best offense in the league, putting up an average of 114.9 points per game. On defense, they give up an average of 110.8 points per game.

Memphis is 8-0 against the spread in their last 8 games against an opponent in the Eastern Conference and the total has gone under in 13 of the Grizzlies last 20 games.

The Miami Heat are now 26-24 overall this season and now in the 5th spot in the Eastern Conference after winning four games in a row. Those four games were agains sub par teams including the Cavs on Saturday where they got the 115-101 win. Miami was able to put up 15 3-pointers and go 54% from the field, but they’ll be facing this Memphis team who will be the best team they’ve faced all week and those type of shooting percentages most likely won’t be the case.

Andre Iguodala missed last game and is questionable for this one due to his hip injury. At home this season, the Heat have the eighth worst offense in the league, scoring an average of 108.4 points per game, but thankfully they have a top ten defense that only gives up an average off 108.8 points per game.

Miami is 4-1 against the spread in their last 5 games and the total has gone over in 6 of the Heat’s last 6 games when playing at home against the Grizzlies.
