I initially had the Grizzlies to cover on Monday and then deleted it after Dillon Brooks and De’Anthony Melton went into Covid protocols. 

It would’ve been a perfect 5-0 day if I had kept it, but instead we went 4-0. Let’s go perfect again.

Brooklyn Nets @ LA Clippers

I think James Harden can carry the Nets, despite Kevin Durant remaining out. 

That’s because the Clippers are without Paul George. The Nets are 3.5 point favourites on the road and it just doesn’t feel like enough.

Without LaMarcus Aldridge, I am also looking at Nic Claxton, especially his rebounds. It is set at just 6.5 and the over pays $2.05 on TAB.

Best bet: Handicap betting - Nets -3.5

Best bet: Player rebounds - Claxton over 6.5

Utah Jazz @ San Antonio Spurs

Without Dejounte Murray, I’m hoping Derrick White takes on a large scoring load. 

His points line is 18.5 and the over is very appealing for $1.87 on Sportsbet.

Best bet: Player points - White over 18.5

Boston Celtics @ Minnesota Timberwolves

The Wolves are missing all of their starters. 

That boosts Malik Beasley, but his points line is 21.5. 

It feels too high, especially if Patrick Beverley plays. The under is $1.95 on TAB and Sportsbet.

Best bet: Player points - Beasley under 21.5

Houston Rockets @ Charlotte Hornets

Without PJ Washington, I expect Mason Plumlee’s minutes to rise. 

That means more assists. His line is just 2.5 and the over is paying $2.15 on TAB.

Best bet: Player assists - Plumlee over 2.5
