The NBA is back with a loaded slate on Wednesday, and I’m feeling good heading into these matchups since we’re 5-2 in the NBA Best Bets column over the last two nights

Tonight, I’m super excited for a couple of player props that we can grab at plus odds at WynnBET Sportsbook, as well as two road dogs that have been great against the spread this season. 

With 13 games to watch, we can immerse ourselves in some NBA action tonight, but here are my four favorite picks for tonight’s games.

Memphis Grizzlies vs. Milwaukee Bucks: Grizzlies +6.5 (-110)

The Memphis Grizzlies are one of the hottest teams in the NBA, but they’ll have to travel to Milwaukee to take on the defending champs on Wednesday night. 

The Milwaukee Bucks are hoping to get Jrue Holiday (ankle, questionable) back in the lineup on Wednesday, as the team has gone on a skid as of late, losing four of its last five. 

The Grizzlies are an elite 30-16 against the spread this season, and they’ve been even better on the road, going 15-5 against the spread this season. 

Ja Morant and company have won 12 of their last 13 games, and they've covered in 11 of those 13 games as well. 

Holiday’s return could be huge for the Bucks, especially on the defensive end, but it’s no secret that Milwaukee hasn’t looked great as of late. The team blew a 17-point lead against the Atlanta Hawks on Monday, marking the first time all season the Bucks lost after leading at the end of the third quarter. 

I’m surprised that we’re getting the Grizzlies at this number given their recent play, and even though Milwaukee is ninth in offensive rating and seventh in defensive rating, Memphis is seventh and ninth in those respective statistics. 

Talk about symmetry. 

This should be a great game, but I’ll back the Grizzlies with the points to stay hot ATS. 

Oklahoma City Thunder vs. San Antonio Spurs: Thunder +7.5 (-110)

The Oklahoma City Thunder only have 14 wins in the 2021-22 season, but they’ve been one of the best teams to bet on in the NBA this season. 

OKC is an impressive 28-14-1 against the spread (covering at 66.7 percent clip) this season, and it is just as impressive as a road underdog (14-7 ATS). 

The Spurs are solid as a home favorite this season (6-3 ATS), so one of these trends is going to be bucked on Wednesday night. 

The Spurs are going to try to push the pace (fifth in the NBA in pace), but the Thunder have not been bad defensively this season, ranking 15th in defensive rating on the season. 

I think this is a few too many points to give an OKC team that nearly upset the Dallas Mavericks on Monday. 

Robert Williams OVER 10.5 Rebounds (+105)

Robert Williams is averaging 9.2 rebounds per game this season, but he’s been one of Boston’s best players all season. 

The Celtics big man is averaging 11.2 rebounds per game over his last 12 games, and he’s cleared this number in eight of those 12 matchups. 

Not only that, but Williams and the Boston Celtics are facing the Charlotte Hornets, who are 29th in the NBA in rebounding percentage this season. With Charlotte playing at such a fast pace, this is a game that should have plenty of possessions for Williams to pick up rebounds. 

Dejounte Murray OVER 20.5 Points (+100)

I think we’re getting some value on Dejounte Murray here, as he’s scored just 18 points in each of his last two games.

However, prior to that, Murray had scored 22 or more points in five of six games, and the fact that he’s +100 in this prop is just too good to pass up. The Spurs guard is still taking 20.9 shots per game since coming off the COVID-19 list.

I also don’t hate taking Murray to lead this game in scoring, as it’s essentially a matchup between him and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander. Remember, the Spurs have hit the over in 15 of 21 home games this season, so Murray should have plenty of chances to score tonight.
