NBA DraftKings Odds: Betting advice for the TNT Tuesday Night slate, led by ZION v. JA

We win some bets, we’ll buy the Suns together!

NBA: New Orleans Pelicans at Memphis Grizzlies Christine Tannous-USA TODAY Sports

The Holidays are just around the corner, so let’s put some more coinage in your pocket as you prepare to provide the best damn holiday season you can for you and yours.

The TNT Tuesday night slate features has HUGE must-see matchup between two young titans in Ja Morant vs. Zion Williamson.

Oh yeah, there’s another 20 players who will take the floor in that game but we all know we’re just going to watch the Zion vs. Ja head-to-head matchup, right? I wouldn’t be surprised to see the top 2 picks from the 2019 Draft combine for 80 in this one!

Check out all the odds either at DraftKings’ website or in your Draftkings app, and make some bets to put a little more money in your pocket!

Memphis Grizzlies at New Orleans Pelicans

MEM Spread: +3.5 (-110) Moneyline: +135

PEL Spread: -3.5 (-110) Moneyline: -155


Let’s start with the first leg of TNT’s Tuesday night doubleheader. The Grizzlies enter with the better record (8-5) and reportedly will play their all-defense guy, Jaren Jackson Jr. (foot), for the first time this season, but Pelicans (7-6) have the best odds to win because they’re at home and they’ve got both Brandon Ingram and Zion Williamson healthy.

Betting Advice: It’s JJJ’s first game back, and the Grizzlies have been awful defensively without him (24th overall), so I just don’t see them holding down the Pels from getting anything they want. I think you should bet on the Pels to win and cover the spread.

Go into the DK app or website and have fun making some prop bets too. You can probably bet Ja Morant going over on points in this national TV game, and I’d even put some money down on Desmond Bane* to go over his too. But in the end, the Pels’ trio of Ingram/Zion/CJ should prevail.

*scratch that! He’s out with injury

Brooklyn Nets at Sacramento Kings

BKN Spread: +2.0 (-110) Moneyline: +115

SAC Spread: -2.0 (-110) Moneyline: -135


Surprised to see the Kings favored over anybody? Me too. The Kings are at home and off to a respectable 6-6 start, but the Nets are recovering nicely from their crap-the-bed start. The team has suspended Kyrie Irving and new coach Jacque Vaughan has benched the ineffective Ben Simmons, and suddenly the Nets have won 4 of their last 6 games.

Betting Advice: Bet on the Nets, folks. You should never ever ever put money on the line in favor of the Kings. While you’re at it, bet on Kevin Durant’s scoring too. If you like to balance the odds, go ahead and take Domantas Sabonis to beat his over/unders as well. The Nets don’t have anyone to really stop him until Simmons gets back to his old self.

There you go! Have some fun. Do some parlays. Make Tuesday night exciting while you’re waiting for the next Suns game.
