Aaron Gordon (DEN) Over 12.5 Points + Nikola Jokic (DEN) Over 11.5 Rebounds -125

Matchup: San Antonio Spurs vs. Denver Nuggets (NBA League Pass, 9:00 p.m. ET)

While the NBA has been tricky recently, these 2-leg parlays have truly been amazing recently. While I normally like to avoid juice like this, I love both of these spots. While I started off with Aaron Gordon 1+ 3PM, something that's been insanely consistent this year, I pivoted to points. The Spurs are another one of those high pace/low defense teams, and Gordon has had a lot of success attacking the rim against them this year, scoring 16 & 25 points, while only attempting 3 total 3’s. Jokic is also in a dream spot, grabbing 17, 13, and 16 rebounds against the Spurs this year. He's been attacking the glass all season long, and I see no reason why he wouldn't in an important game for both teams. 

Donovan Mitchell (UTA) Over 5.5 Points 1Q + Tyus Jones (MEM) Over 0.5 Assist 1Q Assist -130

Matchup: Memphis Grizzlies vs. Utah Jazz (NBA League Pass, 9:00 p.m. ET)

Donovan Mitchell is averaging 7.5 first quarter points on the season, and it's only gotten better recently. Over his last 25 games, he has gone over this number in 21 of those games, with 3 misses being right there at 5. He's coming into this game hitting in 12 straight games, seeing plenty of volume, taking 3+ 3PM in 5 of his last 6 games. Tyus Jones is the free square for me today, and I really don't say that often. Jones has 2+ assist first quarter assists in all 8 games since Ja Morant has gone down. He's averaging 2.3 first quarter assists on the season, and should continue that streak today. 

Tyus Jones (MEM) Over 1.5 Assist 1Q + Jaren Jackson Jr. (MEM) Over 0.5 Block +190

Matchup: Memphis Grizzlies vs. Utah Jazz (NBA League Pass, 9:00 p.m. ET)

Like I said, 1+ assist shouldn't even be an option for Tyus, but Ill take advantage of the + money on two all day long. Jones has 24 first quarter assists in the 8 games since Ja Morant went out, hitting this number in every single one. Jaren Jackson Jr has been a machine with the blocks this year. He’s played the Jazz twice this year, with 5 and 2 blocks. Dating back to 2018, he has a block in 8 straight games against the Jazz.  This is essentially a bet on Tyus Jones, JJJ has a block in 19 straight games, and 24 of his last 25.
