NBA multi odds for Tuesday, January 16
- Lakers to beat Grizzlies – +102
- Warriors to beat Cavs – -200
- Pacers to beat Jazz – +147
- Rockets to beat Clippers – -196.08
Los Angeles Lakers at Memphis Grizzlies
9:30am AEDT – FedExForum, Memphis
Lakers – +102
Grizzlies – -120.48
The Lakers head to Tennessee with a fifth consecutive win in their sights. The Grizzlies have lost eight of their last 12 games and seem to have one eye on the draft order. LA’s odds look very generous for a team that has won five of its last six away games against the spread.
Golden State Warriors at Cleveland Cavaliers
12pm AEDT – Quicken Loans Arena, Cleveland
Warriors – -200
Cavaliers – +168
The Warriors have overcome a shaky start to their title defence and now hold the league’s best record at 35-9. The Cavs are not faring quite so well in the Eastern Conference, having slipped to 26-16 with seven defeats in nine outings. As tempting as it is to back a LeBron James miracle, you cannot bet against GSW here.
Indiana Pacers at Utah Jazz
12pm AEDT – Vivint Smart Home Arena, Salt Lake City
Pacers – +147
Jazz – -175.44
The Pacers have climbed back into the playoff spots with four wins from five games. The Jazz have had a better-than-expected campaign thanks to NBA Rookie of the Year candidate Donovan Mitchell, but seven defeats in nine games have put their post-season plans in serious doubt. All the value is with Indiana.
Houston Rockets at Los Angeles Clippers
12pm AEDT – Staples Center, Los Angeles
Rockets – -196.08
Clippers – +164
We know Houston are good, but how about them Clippers? They have taken some big scalps this season – including both the Rockets and the Warriors – and are now aiming at a fifth straight win. However, the Rockets have learned to play without James Harden and should have too much firepower on this occasion.
