Memphis Grizzlies -2  -110 at DraftKings Sportsbook

The Grizzlies are 30-14 and on an 11-game winning streak. Memphis has not had an easy schedule during this stretch either as they played the Nets, Cavs, Lakers, Warriors, and Suns. Since Ja Morant returned, the Grizzlies have been a whole new team. Morant is playing at an MVP level. The Mavericks are heating up too, but they are not a playoff team. They will struggle against good playoff teams, and the Grizzlies look like a good playoff team. Ride the Grizzlies right now.

Golden State Warriors Moneyline +160 at Draftkings Sportsbook

Golden State is still Golden State. They have been on a rough patch lately, but they will get back into it, and this is the game to do it. The Warriors are a championship-caliber team, and the Bulls are a great regular-season team. That means this is a great betting value game for the Warriors. There are people out for Golden State, but they have Wiggins and Steph. Those two players can carry the team in scoring. They need stops on defense to win this game. This game is an opportunity to get betting value on the best NBA team in the league. 

Miami Heat -4  -115 at Draftkings Sportsbook

The Heat is finding ways to win games lately. They have battled through safety protocols and injuries for their entire team. Jimmy Butler is sitting out this game, but they have plenty of talent on this team to cover the spread. The Hawks have been a spotty team lately. They are 1-4 in January, and last time they played the Heat, they lost 115-91. Clint Capela being out will hurt the Hawks. The defense and rebounding will struggle. This game is the best time to grab the Heat against a lesser opponent with a tight spread.
