NBA Best Bets of the Day (1/3)

NBA Bets

Tuesday is a small three-game slate of NBA action, but it should be an exciting one to bet. All three games have totals of at least 230 points, so we should see some scoring and fast paced play in all three.

One of the biggest pace bumps will go to the Utah Jazz in their matchup against Sacramento. Utah is about average, but the Kings play at the second fast pace in the league. Their lack of defense combined with that fast pace usually leads to production from their opponent’s key players. With that said, can you guess which game we will be heavily targeting for our NBA best bets? 


Best NBA Spread Bet

Sacramento Kings @ Utah Jazz Over 242.5

(-110, DraftKings Sportsbook)

The Kings are playing at the second-fastest pace in the league. They have been incredibly efficient on offense and non-existent on the defensive end. This should be a great spot for Utah as they are being paced up and face a soft defense. I would like to see Malik Monk and Kevin Huerter ruled in to further my convictions here, but I still think the total is a bit low for the pace this game is likely to be played at. These two surprisingly efficient offensive teams will be going back and forth all night at an elevated pace to most games. 

Best NBA Points Prop Bet

Jordan Clarkson Over 22.5 Points

(-114, BetRivers)

This opened at -110 on most books and is moving up. Jordan Clarkson finds himself in a great spot. Sacramento paces up Utah, so that will lead to more possessions. Sacramento is also one of the worst defensive teams in the league, so that should mean above average efficiency. More possessions and better efficiency translate into more points scored, which is why I love the over for Clarkson.


Best NBA Rebound Prop Bet

Lauri Markkanen Over 7.5 Rebounds

(+100, PointsBet)

In three of the last four games, Lauri Markkanen had 12 or more rebounds. He’s grabbed 47 rebounds over that four-game span. Tuesday he faces a Sacramento team that plays at a fast pace, which should lead to more shot attempts on both ends of the floor. This game should feature more rebounding opportunities than on an average night and his average nights lately have been well above this level.
