Grizzlies vs. Heat, 7:30 p.m. ET
Pick ATS: Grizzlies +4
Memphis has covered the spread in three of its last five games with Morant out. The Grizzlies know how to play without their star point guard and are on a nice winning run at the moment. Miami is 2-4 ATS in its last six games and has been underwhelming at home this season with a 8-22-2 mark as the home favorite. Take the Grizzlies to cover Wednesday.
Over/Under: Over 220
The Grizzlies and Heat both rank near the middle of the league in points per game over the last five. Memphis has gone under the total in three of its last five, but the average line there was 225.9. Miami has gone over the total in four of its last five with the average line during that stretch coming in at 221.2. This is expected to be a relatively close contest and both teams should do their part in the over cashing on this lower number.
