Free Picks: NBA Best Bet of the Day and Money Line Selections 1/16/22

Thank you New York Knicks for hanging in there and closing out the Atlanta Hawks 117-108, and letting us cash another Best Bet. Things are looking up in the NBA and maybe our bad streak is starting to stabilize somewhat. That victory improved our Best Bets of the Day record to 9-11. We went 6-4 on the Money Line upping our total to 35-24 and with a light schedule of games today we hope this upward trend continues.

Papa Dudes Best Bet for the NBA Today

Utah Jazz 28-14 at Denver Nuggets 22-19 (-4.5) 21-2 : The Jazz have lost 4 in a row but get their anchor in the middle, Rudy Gobert, back for this one. They haven’t played since Wednesday so they have had time to reboot, get healthy, and sort some things out. They are well-rested and we look for them to have a great effort tonight. But, it won’t be easy coming into Denver. The Nuggets demolished the Lakers last night 133-96 and are playing at a high level. This should be a good one. We are going with fresh legs and a team with something to prove against a team that might have tired legs down the stretch and could have a letdown. Word of warning: confidence level is a solid 5 out of 10.

PAPA DUDES BEST BET: Jazz -4.5
