Big let down with Zion Williamson as his teammate Brandon Ingram had a career night, and the Pelicans broke a franchise record with the most threes made in a game. Those once-in-a-night things can happen when betting. Thankfully Brook Lopez came through and gave us some wins yesterday. Today there are five games with two games on TNT. 

The first is the Chicago Bulls at Toronto Raptors in an all-red Eastern Conference showdown. The second is the Memphis Grizzlies at Minnesota Timberwolves in an all-blue Western Conference showdown. There will be a prop bet from each of those games as well. There is also a match between the new-look Indiana Pacers and the Sacramento Kings with a 10:00 PM ET start time. The Fantasy Alarm NBA Best Bet of the Night.


NBA Bet of the Night

Scottie Barnes Under 7.5 Rebounds (+120 at DraftKings)

Scottie Barnes Under 7.5 Rebounds +120 - +180 BOOST $25 MAX

You are reading that correctly, two bets on Scottie Barnes under on rebounds to come in. One full unit on Barnes, plus the Draftkings boost on any bet. You could use it however you would like, but plus odds on a bet that S. Barnes has covered only once this month seemed like a good way to boost up earnings. He did rebound well in the first game without Pascal Siakham, but the Raptors are still trying to find their rotation, and Bruce Brown will have similar roles to Barnes, which could eat into Barnes playing time. 

The Chicago Bulls do allow 52.9 rebounds per game, but that was with injuries to two starting Bulls. In addition to that, Zach Lavine is back and has thirty-one rebounds in his last four games. Nikola Vucevic has double-digit rebounds in four of his six games since returning to the court. It will be difficult for S. Barnes to muscle his way through a big frontcourt. Since the trade with the New York Knicks, Barnes' role has somewhat been up in the air, and this has been a successful bet for Fantasy Alarm this month. Trust the under yet again, with a nice payout if it is successful. 

NBA Prop Bet of the Night

Rudy Gobert Over 12.5 Rebounds (-120 at BetMGM)

Rudy Gobert has been a rebounding machine as of late. Here are his rebounding totals for the month of January: 16, 18, 17, 12, 17, 12, 5, 15. One of the best cardiovascular in shape centers has the endurance to play the long minutes. He has played over twenty-eight minutes in all but one game this month, and over thirty-two minutes in all but two games. The big man is putting in work and the true anchor of the Minnesota Timberwolves

Tonight the Timberwolves host the Memphis Grizzlies who allow the fourth most rebounds to opposing teams in the Association, with 54.5. They have also allowed 56 rebounds per game average over their last three games. The Memphis Grizzlies have won five of their last ten games though, and even without Ja Morant are a tougher out than anticipated. R. Gobert should play the entire game despite a twelve-point spread in favor of the Timberwolves. And he should get rebounds all night.

De'Aaron Fox Over 28.5 Points (-120 at BetMGM)

The Sacramento Kings are on a three-game losing streak, but that was at the tail end of a five-game road stretch. They are now back home, have a day's rest and are hosting the high-scoring Indiana Pacers. De’Aaron Fox has been doing his part to help the Kings to a 23-17 record, by averaging twenty-eight points and almost six assists per game. He has scored over thirty points in his last two games and will need just over his average against a poor defensive team to make this bet cash. 

The Pacers allow the second most points per game with 123.4, and allow the tenth most points to opposing point guards. Fox and the Kings need to get back on the winning track to keep up with a top-loaded Western Conference, and Fox will have to be a high-point scorer tonight.
