Free Picks: NBA Best Bets and Money Line Picks 1/12/22

My slump continues in the NBA as both Washington and and Denver failed to cover last night. Those two misses dropped out Best Bets record to 5-9 and leaves us gasping for air. On the bright side, we were 4-2 betting the Money Line and we are a respectable 18-9 in that category. There are 9 games on the docket for tonight. Let’s see if we can change our luck and nip this slump in the butt.

Papa Dudes Best Bet for the NBA Today

Los Angeles Lakers (21-20) (-3) at Sacramento Kings (16-27): The Lakers are playing better and these are the kinds of games they need to win to improve their status for the playoff run. They had won 4 in a row until the red-hot Memphis Grizzlies knocked them off on Sunday. The Kings have lost five straight and are due to win but I like the line and I’m banking on LeBron and company to stop my losing skid.
