Tyus Jones (MEM) Over 6.5 Assists -113

Matchup: Brooklyn at Memphis (ESPN, 7:30 p.m. ET)

The Grizzlies are one of the deepest teams in the NBA, with a plethora of bench players willing to step up when called upon. Jones has been one of my favorite targets whenever Ja Morant goes down, especially in the assists market. In 16 games as a starter this season he's averaging 6.6 assists per game, going over in five of his last six without JA. Since February, Tyus has substituted for Ja in three games with 7, 9, and 11 assists. Ive seen a lot of Jones this year, and I really do think he's gonna surprise some people when he enters free agency this offseason, the kid is good.

Tyus Jones (MEM) Double-Double +480

Matchup: Brooklyn at Memphis (ESPN, 7:30 p.m. ET)

While Jones is known for his passing abilities, he's also a sneaky scorer. In seven of his last 10 games without Ja Morant, he has at least 10 points. While Jones is an efficient three-point shooter, he does most of his work around the rim. With the Nets willingness to switch, especially with Drummond out on the perimeter, I think he will have some good chances to attack the rim. This game will be one of the fastest paced games on the slate, and with a 237 total I’m expecting plenty of offense. 

Davion Mitchell (SAC) Over 24.5 Points +350

Matchup: Sacramento at Indiana (NBA League Pass, 7:00 p.m. ET)

I'm not going to try to deny that this is a very high number for the rookie known as “off-night”. While Mitchell has not necessarily served in the huge role people may have expected being a top 10 pick, with Fox and Sabonis out of the lineup it's his time to shine. Last game, without the two star players, he took 22 shots scoring 28 points relentlessly attacking the paint. This is great because without Sabonis or Myles Turner, this team has been one of the worst in the NBA at protecting the paint. With a 235 total, and two struggling teams, I’m expecting plenty of opportunities for the rookie tonight.
