Brooklyn Nets, Memphis Grizzlies, and Sacramento Kings

We’ve got plenty of exciting NBA action coming Sunday (November 13) as we have seven games on the agenda.

Today we’re going to discuss three bets you should make to go against the spread and explain exactly why you should do so.

#1 Best NBA Team Bet: Brooklyn Nets -5 (-105)

There is one thing we should know about the NBA and that is the fact that the Los Angeles Lakers are not a good team right now. Now consider that small forward LeBron James (right adductor strain) will miss this game and power forward Anthony Davis (back) is likely but has been struggling with some health issues.

This Brooklyn Nets team has flipped a switch since head coach Jacque Vaughn took over as they’ve bought entirely into the defensive side of the floor. They haven’t let a team get more than 96 points against them in the last five games and should continue to dominate here.

They also have small forward Kevin Durant dominating the game as he’s averaging 30.1 points, 7.1 rebounds, 5.5 assists, 1.9 blocks and 1.2 steals in his last 10 games, so he will show off your skills here. Hand me the Nets as street favorites to dominate the Lake Show.

That number is so low because the Grizzlies’ backcourt is suspect for this game, with both point guard Ja Morant (left ankle pain) and shooting guard Desmond Bane (right toe pain) both expected to be absent. However, this team still has plenty of attacking to rely on with guys like Dillon Brooks and Tyus Jones to hit the basketball. There’s a reason the Memphis Grizzlies share fourth place in the NBA with 116.5 points per game, and it’s because they play as a team.

They face the Washington Wizards and are struggling with a few injuries of their own, with shooting guard Bradley Beal (COVID-19) and power forward Taj Gibson (neck) left out for the team. I don’t trust a team with Kristaps Porzingis and Kyle Kuzma as top scorers to beat one of the best all-around teams in the NBA, so we should get the point and a half and side with the Grizzlies here.

DunksandThrees shows that the Warriors are 24th in the NBA this season with an adjusted net rating of -3.5, while the Kings are 18th this season with a rating of -1.4, making it 18th the Kings actually played better. The Kings meet the Warriors for the third time this year and the difference in the first two meetings was eight points.

This Warriors bench is unable to keep the starters away with enough time to rest. Little forward Andre Iguodala “won’t be playing a game any time soon” according to head coach Steve Kerr to help this unit so things will get difficult for them.

Sacramento is playing decently well and should be able to keep this game close. De’Aaron Fox has 27 points at 51.4 percent from the floor with eight assists, which he also dished out in his two games against Golden State, so get the points with the home kings here.
