Best NBA Bets & Picks Today

Nets vs. Hornets: Seth Curry Over Player Prop Bets

The first play of the night will come from the player prop market with a focus on Seth Curry. Curry is still getting acclimated to his role with the Brooklyn Nets but has a strong matchup tonight against the Charlotte Hornets. His point total is currently sitting at 11.5 with odds of -116 to the over. In this specific matchup, the play is the over 11.5 points for Curry. With a game total close to 240 in what is expected to be a high-tempo game, Curry will be able to take advantage of a Hornets defense that currently ranks 28th in points allowed to shooting guards. Currently averaging 15 points on the season, Curry is projected at 14.4 points in tonight’s game, a strong 68% win rate and an even-better 24% ROI at his current 11.5-point line. Although the play is focused on his point total, a sprinkle on his over 17.5 points, rebounds and assists also holds great value at -120 odds. The line for Curry’s props will soon be adjusted once he gets comfortable in the Nets system, so take advantage of a great number that holds strong value.

Pelicans vs. Grizzlies

The Memphis Grizzlies are hosting the New Orleans Pelicans with a point spread of Grizzlies -5.5 and a game total hovering around 231.5. The Pelicans have gone 4-1 since the All-Star break, including wins over the Suns and Jazz, and they were at least 5-point underdogs in both. The Pelicans have finally been able to get healthy and are currently playing great basketball, which offers a valuable bet on the point spread in tonight’s matchup. The Pelicans at +5.5 with -110 odds is a great play on tonight’s slate and should be locked in early before the line moves closer to game time. Since 2019 the Pelicans have performed well against the Grizzlies, with a 7-1 record against the spread and an impressive 6-2 straight-up record on the moneyline. This game has all the makings of a high-scoring matchup that is expected to be close from start to finish. Brandon Ingram has been leading the Pelicans over their last five games, averaging 29.4 points, 7.2 assists and 5.6 rebounds. Pairing his resurgence with the addition of C.J. McCollum, the Pelicans offense has reached new heights, and the betting market has not yet adjusted to it. Although the Grizzlies are a great team, the current state of the Pelicans and their recent performances over the past few weeks makes this spread much too high. In what should be a game that goes down to the wire, take the points and back one of the hotter teams in the league since the break.
