Tuesday NBA action as the BetDeluxe team finds all the best bets from the fixtures you cannot miss.

The BetDeluxe team is on hand to find the best bets ahead of Tuesday NBA fixtures from the USA. 

It all begins with Memphis taking on Oklahoma at 11:00am (AEDT).

A pair of Western Conference rivals clash on Tuesday when the Memphis Grizzlies host Oklahoma City Thunder.

The young Thunder line up currently owns the worst record in the conference stands, but took a huge step to getting itself off the bottom with a huge one-point win over the LA Clippers. 

Josh Giddey put record-breaking numbers up in the win with 18 rebounds to go with eight points and 10 assists. 

Giddey almost became the youngest ever play to record a triple-double as well, but now he will pay his attention to a Grizzlies team which has won eight of its last 10 outings. 

The Grizzlies big winning form has been replicated by their ability to cover the spread as well with a 9-2 ATS record in their last 11 games overall.

We will side the Grizzlies. 

Suggested Bet: Memphis Grizzlies -8.5 at $1.90

houston @ chicago

december 21st 12:00pm

After toppling the LA Lakers on Monday, the Chicago Bulls welcome the Houston Rockets to the United Center.

The Bulls held firm in second spot of the Eastern Conference with a 115-110 win over the Purple and Gold, while the Rockets outdid the Piston to stay away from the bottom of the West. 

The 18-10 record the Bulls currently preside over has been a surprise to many this season and have only ever started -8.5 favourites on two occasions having covered the spread once. 

They have a similar record when playing off no rest either, sitting at 2-2 ATS. 

Houston might just very well have a chance to cover the spread, but the Bulls at home are a different and will be keen to chase down the Nets atop of the conference. 

Suggested Bet: Chicago Bulls -8.5 at $1.88

charlotte @ utah

december 21st 1:30pm

Utah hosts its clash against Charlotte at Vivint Smart Home Arena as a heavily-fancied -11.5 favourite. 

The Jazz are on a rare two-game slide after suffering defeats to San Antonio and Washington, while Charlotte was put to the sword in its 137-106 loss against the Phoenix Suns. 

The Hornets were left to rue a horrible first quarter which cost them victory and put them in the ninth spot on the Eastern Conference table.

But they might just fancy themselves against a Jazz team which has seriously struggled without the influence of veteran Mike Conley. 

It is no surprise the Jazz are 0-3 when he has sat out this season. 

Their ball movement on offence has looked slow and lethargic when he does not play. 

If he does return, the Jazz should be able to cover the spread, but if not, back the Hornets at the line.  

Suggested Bet:
Charlotte Hornets +11.5 at $1.90 (If Conley misses)
Utah -11.5 at $1.90 (If Conley plays)

san antonio @ La clippers

december 21st 2:30pm

The Los Angeles Clippers (16-14) are the 5-point favorites as they attempt to extend a three-game home win streak when squaring off against the San Antonio Spurs (11-18) in Los Angeles on Tuesday. 

The Clippers have been up and down like a yo-yo this season having to deal without the offensive and defensive prowess of Kawhi Leonard. 

The same can be said for the Spurs, but with such a young inexperienced team it is to be expected during patches as they sit 12th in the Western Conference with an 11-18 record. 

Incredibly, though, the Spurs have an ATS record of 8-2 when playing as at least 5-point underdogs.

The Spurs may be on the road again without rest, but they do not have to travel far, so the trip to LA should not jade them at all. 

Suggested Bet: San Antonio +5.5 at $1.90
