10 game slate in the NBA this Tuesday is headlined by a couple of big games kicking off from 8.00pm! Check out our preview and betting picks for the key games of the night below.
NBA Tuesday Picks
New York Knicks at Dallas Mavericks
American Airlines, 8.30pm (ET)
The Knicks have lost their last three games on the spin and have fallen to 6th place in the Eastern Conference. They went down at home to the 76ers by 7 points on Christmas Day and will be desperate to get their three game Texas road trip off to a winning start on Tuesday night.
The Mavericks also suited up on Christmas Day, earning themselves a victory over the Lakers at home by 9 points. They are 18-16 on the season and sit just inside the top 8 in the Western Conference. Star guard Luka Doncic is putting his case forward for MVP, averaging 32.8 points and 8.7 assists this season.
The Mavericks start as 5.5 point favourites at home but I’m siding with the Knicks at that line. New York are 10-6 straight up and against the spread on the road while the Mavs have been just ordinary at home, ATS, maintaining a 6-10-2 record.
Phoenix Suns at Memphis Grizzlies
FedEx Forum, 8.00pm (ET)
The Grizzlies had some headline plays on Christmas Day but failed to get the job done against the Warriors, going down by 14 points on the road. They have an opportunity to bounce back at home on Tuesday night as they square off against the Phoenix Suns. The Grizzlies are 20-12 on the season and sit in third place in an extremely tight Western Conference.
The Suns also squared off on Christmas Day, going down to the Nuggets in a high scoring clash in Denver. They have lost their last three on the trot to fall to 4th in the Western Conference with a 19-15 record.
Memphis start as favourites at home but I like the look of the overs here instead. The Suns have been in some shootouts of late, including their Christmas Day clash against the Nuggets which resulted in 253 points. The Grizzlies and Suns are the 8th and 9th highest scoring teams in the competition this season, this one should go overs.
