New Orleans Pelicans vs Memphis Grizzlies:
BET GRIZZLIES +11.5 (1.30).
Even with Bane expected to be sidelined, there’s a chance Jackson makes his season debut and Memphis has a deep roster.
While the Grizzlies are 1-5 ATS in the last 6 road meetings with the Pelicans, New Orleans is 0-5 ATS in its last 5 games following a win.
Dallas Mavericks vs Los Angeles Clippers:
BET CLIPPERS +14.5 (1.35).
Los Angeles has played well in Dallas lately and looked extra focused at the Rockets Monday after a horrendous 4th quarter vs. the Brooklyn Nets Saturday (allowed a 26-9 run to end the game). While the Mavericks are 6-4 straight up in their last 10 games, they’ve only won 1 game in that stretch by 7 or more points.
Sacramento Kings vs Brooklyn Nets:
BET KINGS +6.5 (1.35).
The Kings have won 3 straight and have scored at least 120 in each. They are healthy. However, since Vaughn took over coaching duties, the Nets have allowed an average of 97.1 points per game, although the Lakers scored 116 in their win Sunday. The Kings have scored 115 or more in all 6 of their wins this season. In their 2 matchups last season, the home team won both times.
Utah Jazz vs New York Knicks:
BET JAZZ +3.5 (1.35).
Utah, simply put, is the more trustworthy team right now. It is 4-1 ATS as the home team. The Jazz rank 4th in defensive rating as well, and the Knicks are coming off a battle in which they gave up 145 to the team sitting 20th in that category. New York’s offensive and defensive rating is in the league’s bottom half. The Knicks’ effective field goal rate is 23rd in the NBA and that drops to 29th when considering only road games, so when they aren’t in MSG, New York isn’t great at shooting.
