The Jazz missed covering by just one point, so we ended 2-3 yesterday.

Let’s get back at it today.

Indiana Pacers @ Miami Heat

I know Duncan Robinson has been bad, but with the injuries in Miami, I do like him having a chance to go over a low line of 12.5 for his points.

It is paying $1.87 on both Sportsbet and TAB, but I like this one to cash.

Best bet: Player points - Robinson over 12.5

Minnesota Timberwolves @ Dallas Mavericks

The Wolves are without some key players, but Dallas is missing Luka Dončić, and maybe Kristaps Porziņģis. 

The Wolves also have been playing better and have the coaching advantage. So, Dallas being favoured by 1.5 points is a little weird. Minnesota should cover.

Despite the absences, Karl-Anthony Towns is not a lock for a big scoring game either. 

He has gone over his point line of 26.5 in two of his last four games and is averaging just 24 points this season. I like him to go under here, paying $1.85 on TAB.

I will also look at Jaden McDaniels who will start in place of Jarred Vanderbilt. McDaniels is nowhere near the rebounder Vanderbilt is, so despite the urge to think he smashes the 6.5 rebound line, I will go under. 

It pays $1.67 on Sportsbet

Best bet: Handicap betting - Timberwolves +1.5

Best bet: Player points - Towns under 26.5

Best bet: Player rebounds - McDaniels under 6.5

Detroit Pistons @ New York Knicks

Without Jerami Grant, there is a chance for Trey Lyles to increase his scoring. 

He won’t always do it, but the line of just 8.5 points should give us value for the over. 

The bonus is it is paying $2.00 on TAB.

Best bet: Player points - Lyles over 8.5
