NBA Picks February 6, 2024
Memphis Grizzlies vs. New York Knicks
Tipoff: 7:30 pm EST
Spread: Knicks -12.5
The Memphis Grizzlies will head to New York City to take on the surging New York Knicks. The Grizzlies are decimated by injuries right now.
Earlier this season, the Grizzlies lost their All-Star point guard Morant for the season. Additionally, the Grizzlies will be without Smart, Bane, Clarke, LaRavia, Tillman, and Jackson Jr., and a handful of players are questionable.
Despite the injuries the Knicks are dealing with, they are playing at a high level. In fact, the Knicks are 9-1 ATS and 8-2 SU over their last 10 games.
Furthermore, the Knicks are the third-best offensive-rated team over the last five games, while the Grizzlies are dead last in the same span.
Lastly, when the Knicks play teams who are below .500 this season, they are 19-5 SU and 17-7 ATS. I like the Knicks to bounce back in this spot after taking a loss against the Lakers on Saturday night.
Best Bet: Knicks -12.5
Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Utah Jazz
Tipoff – 9:00 pm EST
Spread: Thunder -3
In which could be the game of the night, the Oklahoma City Thunder head to Utah in a pivotal divisional matchup. The Thunder have owned this series between these two teams over the past several seasons. In fact, the Thunder are 5-4 SU and 8-1 ATS since 2021.
Additionally, these two teams matched up twice this season, and the Thunder won both games by 5 and 14 points, respectively. Further, the Thunder scored 134 points in each of those two games.
However, the Jazz have been one of the best teams against the spread at home this season.
The Jazz are 16-7 SU and 17-6 ATS. I do expect to see points to be aplenty in this matchup. Both games this season went over the total with an average combined score of 259 points.
Furthermore, the Jazz are the 4th best offensive efficient team over the last five games.
Best Bet: Thunder/Jazz Over 243
YTD Record: 32-20 (61.5%)
