Taco Tuesday brings us a list of six NBA games that makes me feel pretty good. The Memphis Grizzlies take the longest winning streak in the NBA on the road to face the Indiana Pacers. The Grizzlies are 6-1 directly on the road. The Clippers are in Brooklyn for a nationally televised matchup against the Nets. In the cup, the Boston Celtics are in the Bay Area to face the Golden State Warriors.

ODDS AVAILABLE IN SPORTS BOOK DRAWINGS AND ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE
Los Angeles Clippers vs. Brooklyn Nets (+1.5) Total: 241.5
The Brooklyn Nets are ready for a test tonight by welcoming the Los Angeles Clippers, leaders of the Western Conference, to the Barclays Center. Both the Nets and the Clippers are playing good basketball right now. The Nets have won seven of their last 10, while the Clippers have won nine of their last 10 games. I don’t normally bet on these marquee matchups, but I can’t help but support the Clippers in Brooklyn tonight. I know Los Angeles is playing their fifth straight road game, but they’ve been very good on the road this season. The Clippers are 8-3 ATS on the road, while Brooklyn is 6-7 ATS at home. Brooklyn opened as a 1-point home favorite. Almost 60% of the spread tickets are backing the Nets at home, yet the Nets are now a +1.5 home underdog. That reverse drive makes me feel great with the Clippers tonight.
The chose: Clippers -1.5
Portland Trail Blazers vs. Washington Wizards (-2) Total: 239.5
The Trail Blazers and Wizards are playing in DC tonight and I’m not sure bettors can set the total high enough. This game opened at 240, hit 242, and is currently around 239.5. Both teams have major problems defensively. Wizards opponents average 124 points per game against them at DC. The Trail Blazers yield an average of 117 points on the road, prepare your trail shoes. I’ll say it’s not often that you see totals that high, but when they do, it’s for a reason – teams are likely to overdo it.
The chose: Over 239.5
Memphis Grizzlies vs. Indiana Pacers (-5) Total: 223
The Memphis Grizzlies are one of the most popular teams in the NBA. The Indiana Pacers have started to cool down, while Memphis has won seven in a row. The Pacers have three wins in their last eight games at 2-6 ATS in that time frame. The Grizzlies, who are 6-1 on the road, are playing with a lot of confidence. They are coming off a 31-point victory over the San Antonio Spurs. Here’s an interesting betting stat: The homeless on the road have been covering 55% clip this season.
The chose: Grizzlies +5
Boston Celtics vs Golden State Warriors (+2.5) Total: 226
The Celtics and Warriors meet in the cup in what should be a very interesting competition. The Celtics will not have Marcus Smart, while the Warriors will not have rookie of the year candidate James Wiseman. The Warriors enter tonight’s game as winners of three of their last four. The Celtics are in a difficult part of their schedule. They are coming off a couple of tough losses to the Spurs and the Lakers. I think the wrong team is the favorite in this game. The Warriors are 8-4 at home this season. I think they cover it and I’ll spread something on the money line.
The chose: Warriors +2.5
Overall record: 23-25 ATS
