Today’s NBA Best Bets (Predictions for Darius Garland, Hawks-Cavs and Grizzlies-Pelicans)
After drawing 2-2 in our match NBA best bets on MondayI’m back with three options for Tuesday night’s loaded intercept.
We’re really focusing on the Atlanta Hawks-Cleveland Cavaliers game, because I think Cleveland is criminally underrated in this game. The Cavs have moved one point behind at WynnBET since I bet on them and you’ll see that’s an even better number than what I went for early Tuesday morning.
Let’s break down three options for action tonight:
Take part in four selection packages for February 14:
All odds via WynnBET Sportsbook.
Cleveland Cavaliers vs Atlanta Hawks: Cavs -1.5 (-110)
Atlanta won’t have one of its best players in this game, as John Collins (heel) made it through the All-Star break.
Darius Garland is battling a back injury for Cleveland, but he dropped 27 points in his final game after sidelining the team’s win over the Indiana Pacers.
The Hawks might be the weirdest team to bet on in the NBA. Last week, I noticed that they didn’t include the loss percentage for the whole season, and that continues to be the case in this game.
Atlanta currently has a 0-30 margin on losing and 24-2 margin on winning the game. Purely nuts.
Atlanta has been beaten at home just five times this season, by 2-3 ATS in those games, and I think the Hawks could be looking at another loss tonight.
Losing Collins was assassin against the front lines of Evan Mobley, Jarrett Allen and Kevin Love, and Atlanta was only 2-4 when Collins is not in the lineup this season and 22-47 all the time when he misses a game.
Cleveland outperformed last season, as it had the third-best ATS record in the NBA at 34-20-3. With Garland back on the roster, this is a perfect position to support the Cavs on the road.
Memphis Grizzlies vs New Orleans Pelicans: Grizzlies -4 (-110)
Grizzlies are NBA best team of this seasongoing 39-19, and they’ve had a crazy cover run since Christmas Day, which will be 20-5 ATS.
This is a great point for Memphis, as the Pelicans are just 5-5 by the margin in the second game head to head this season.
The Pelicans played much better late in the hour, and I discussed why the CJ McCollum trade makes sense for their play hopes, but I don’t think they’ll be able to keep this Memphis team on Tuesday.
Six of the Grizzlies’ last eight wins have come in double digits, so as long as Ja Morant (problem) plays in this game, I’ll back Memphis.
Darius Garland OVER 20.5 points (-115)
Darius Garland has faced a back injury, but he’s lost 27 points, 27 points and 24 points in his last three games and now he faces an Atlanta team that is 27th in the NBA in terms of points. defensive ratings on Tuesday.
Garland is averaging 20.1 points per game while shooting 47% longer and he was the engine that drove the Cavs away. While Caris LeVert will snap some shots from Garland, he has also opened things up for the young keeper at the attacking end.
I don’t trust the Atlanta defense to hold up in this game with John Collins out, so I’ll be returning to Garland to keep the heat ahead of his appearance in the All-Star Game.
