Free Picks: NBA Best Bets 1/8/22

*PAPA DUDES BEST BET OF THE DAY* Memphis 26-14 at LA Clippers 19-20:

The Grizzlies have won seven straight and head to LA for games against the Clippers and the Lakers. They will be playing without Steven Adams who is out because of COVID protocols, but their main guns should play. Meanwhile, the Clippers have lost 7 of their last 10 and are struggling trying to find their game. They are still without Paul George and center, Ivica Zubac is questionable.

Memphis is a 2.5-point favorite.

PAPA DUDES PICK: Memphis -2.5

Other Games of the Day: (these are just straight up picks, not involving the spread)

Milwaukee 26-15 at Charlotte 20-19 (-1.5): Bucks pull off a mild upset. Milwaukee 115 Charlotte 111

New York 19-20 at Boston 18-21 (-7): Toss-up game between these two average teams. Spread it too high. Boston 107 Knicks 104
