Chicago blowing a 20 point lead and Rubio missing the assists prop by one hurt yesterday, so let’s try to arrest the slide here on a six-game slate in the NBA.

San Antonio Spurs @ Minnesota TImberwolves

Neither of these teams are particularly convincing, but the Wolves have had a lot more head-scratching moments this season. 

'WORST EVER': NBA fans savage $962 million name change

'NEVER SEEN THAT': NBA fans stunned by 'bizarre' Steph Curry moment

'WOW': Fans lose it over Patty Mills' epic slice of NBA history

The Spurs also welcome back Jakob Poeltl which is underrated in how important it is. I think the Spurs win outright which is $2.10 on TAB.

Best bet game option: Spurs To Win

LA Clippers @ Memphis Grizzlies

I guess the oddsmakers really value the absence of Nicolas Batum to make the Clippers underdogs against a Memphis team who has struggled of late. 

Batum is important, especially with no Marcus Morris, but I do think the Clippers can win this. They are $2.00 on TAB

Best bet game option: Clippers to win

Philadelphia 76ers @ Denver Nuggets

No Joel Embiid or Danny Green, and no Michael Porter Jr. takes the shine off this game, but it’s the total I am looking at. 

This could be a blowout in Denver’s favour, but with so many games going under this season and the Nuggets-76ers combined over under record sitting at 10-19, the under here makes sense sitting at 209.5.

Best bet total points: Under 209.5

Toronto Raptors @ Utah Jazz

OG Anunoby is out for Toronto, so his usage needs to be distributed.

When Pascal Siakam was out earlier this season, we saw Scottie Barnes take on that load and I think it will be more of the same here. Barnes’ points total is 14.5 and over is priced at $1.93 on Sportsbet.

Best bet player option: Barnes Over 14.5 points

Washington Wizards @ Miami Heat

Spencer Dinwiddie is resting for the Wizards, so it will be one of Raul Neto or Aaron Holiday who will start in his place. In the last game he missed, they both played 24 minutes each. But, Neto’s points prop is lower at 7.5 on TAB. I’ll take the over for $1.80

Best bet player option: Neto Over 7.5 Points
