Randy’s Pick

Both teams are banged up, but it looks like Jimmy Butler is going to play. The Memphis Grizzlies have just been a complete mess through 7 games, especially on the defensive side. Until Ja Morant and others return, it's hard to get behind the Grizzlies with confidence. This line is strange if I'm being honest. The Grizz have done nothing so far to be favored against anybody, let alone a solid team in the East. Give me the free bucket.

Randy’s Pick Miami Heat +1.5
