Bettors have a dozen games to choose from on Wednesday night in the NBA. There are a number of fantastic matchups across the league; is the game of the night Brooklyn at Memphis, Golden State at Miami, the Jazz visiting Boston, Phoenix in Minnesota, or the 76ers visit the desperate Lakers? Which game you prefer there are a wealth of betting options tonight. Here are out three favorites picks of the day:
The Nets will try to snap a five game losing streak against the Grizzlies on Wednesday night. Memphis will be without Ja Morant while Brooklyn will have Kyrie Irving since they are playing on the road.
Memphis won 118-104 in Brooklyn on January 3 as Ja Morant scored 36 points while Desmond Bane added 29. Kevin Durant scored 26 points but hit just 8 of 24 shots.
Memphis has won seven of its last ten games, but those have all been against non-playoff teams (the wins are against the Rockets, Pacers, Thunder, Knicks, Pelicans, Magic, and Spurs. The two best teams they have played, Boston and Atlanta, have defeated Memphis by double digits. Take the Nets here.
The Utah Jazz as an underdog is an unusual sight. The Jazz have been an underdog just six times all season and are 1-5 in those games.
Utah beat Boston 137-130 at home on December 3 as a -8 favorite.
Boston won its ninth game in ten tries on Monday when they held off the Thunder. The Celtics have also recorded double digit wins against Western contenders Golden State, Denver, and Memphis during that stretch.
Utah lost to Brooklyn on Monday by 8 points, and the Jazz have only lost by more than eight points once since January (a 124-90 loss in New Orleans). This line is just a little too high.
