Best Bets

Tyrese Haliburton under 18.5 points + Pacers lose to Mavericks parlay (+130)

FanDuel, 3:39 PM CT

Alex Barutha: As competitive as the Pacers have been with Haliburton in the lineup (25-25), he’s struggled on the road against tough opponents. In road games that the Pacers lose, Haliburton averages just 15.6 PPG on 43/33/81 shooting. With Indiana 9-point underdogs here, I’ll take the under on his points prop with the correlation of the Pacers losing for some plus money.

Memphis Grizzlies -9.0 vs. LA Lakers

DraftKings Sportsbook, 2pm CT

This is an incredibly bad spot for the Lakers, even as the Grizzlies have struggled to string together wins of late. Not only will LeBron James miss multiple weeks, but LA will also (probably) be without D’Angelo Russell tonight. That leaves Anthony Davis as the Lakers’ lone true playmaker against a top-five defense in the NBA. More or less, I’m somewhat chalking this up as a post-LeBron injury depression hangover game for the Lakers.

The DraftKings Massachusetts promo code is expected to grant new players $150 in bonus bets once the sportsbook launches in March, 2023. 

Jaren Jackson Jr. O2.5 BLK+STL vs. LA Lakers

DraftKings Sportsbook, 2pm CT

Not exactly going out on a limb here, but Jackson should be able to feast on the undermanned Lakers. He’ll have a tough individual assignment in Anthony Davis, but I still like Jackson’s chances to get to at least 3.0 STL/BLK for 9th time in 11 games. Frankly, Jackson might get three blocks off of Dennis Schroder alone.
