The Grizzlies are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 road games. The Heat are 11-27-1 ATS in their last 39 home games and 7-19 ATS in their last 26 games overall. The under is 17-5-1 in Grizzlies last 23 overall. The over is 4-1 in Heat last 5 overall. The Grizzlies are 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings.
The Miami Heat are at home, they need the win more in terms of seeding, and the Grizzlies have been a mess on the road for the last month or so. With that said, the Heat has been a club that takes one step forward and two steps back all year. Don’t let one win fool you. I need to see some sort of consistency with the Heat before I’m comfortable laying chalk. Give me the Grizzlies.
