Thanks to LeBron James getting just the six assists, we had a 3-2 day yesterday. 

Let’s hope for more of that today.

Oklahoma City Thunder @ Memphis Grizzlies

The last time they met, the Grizzlies won by 73, so it’s disappointing to only see a nine-point spread. 

But the Grizzlies do have Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Josh GIddey for this game.

FANTASY BASKETBALL: Waiver-wire options for Week 10

OPINION: 3 reasons the Lakers shouldn't trade for Ben Simmons

You have to think given how they’ve played, they can keep it closer than nine.

Best bet: Handicap betting - Thunder +9

Charlotte Hornets @ Utah Jazz

The Hornets are down two wings - Cody Martin and Gordon Hayward - against one of the NBA’s best teams on the road. 

The Jazz are whopping 12.5 point favourites, but I think they win it by more. 

I’m also looking at LaMelo Ball’s points propr. Sportsbet has it as 21.5 points. 

I know Hayward is out, but if this is a blowout, I don’t expect Ball to score that much. I will take the under, paying $1.84 on Sportsbet

Best bet: Handicap betting - Jazz -12.5

Best bet: Player points - Ball under 21.5

Houston Rockets @ Chicago Bulls

It’s a back-to-back for Chicago and they are without Zach LaVine, but also now Drrick Jones Jr.

Javonte Green is starting for his energy and hustle, so his rebound numbers should be high. 

On TAB, you can get over 5.5 rebounds for $2.15. 

I also like Alex Caruso’s assist number. Set at 4.5, the over is paying $2.15 on TAB

Best bet: Player rebounds - Green over 5.5

Best bet: Player assists - Caruso over 4.5
