Jaren Jackson Over 1.5 3-Pointers
Jaren Jackson has been an absolute beast this season and his role has become ever more important since the indefinite suspension of Ja Morant.
While logging big minutes averaging 30+ per game, Jackson has seen his shot selections increase along with is field goal attempts. Jackson is shooting the ball between 12-18 times per game in the Grizzlies last 10 game stretch and has shot as many as 6 3-pointers in a game during this period.
Jackson has scored at least 2 3-pointers in 3 of his last 5 games and went 3-4 from deep last week against the Warriors.
Against one of the weakest defenses in the leagues in the Dallas Mavericks, I’m loving this over line for Jackson to hit over 1.5 3-Pointers and we’ve been hot in every over we have taken this season for opposing star players against the Mavs.
Jackson and the over in this one.
Tyus Jones Over 8 Assists
As Jaren Jackson’s role has increased in the absence of Ja Morant, so has Tyus Jones. The now starting point guard has been the team facilitator.
The Grizzlies have scored 100+ points in each game Tyus Jones have started as point guard for the team. In his last four games, Jones has dished out 10, 11, 3, and 12 respectively.
Against a lackluster Mavericks defense that could be without Luka Doncic due to injury, Jones will be matched up against Kyrie Irving, who is known for his lack of defense. With Doncic out, the Mavericks subpar bench that features Frank Ntilikina or Tim Hardaway could also see minutes playing against Jones.
The over assist line may look high at first, but when you peel back the layers here the 8 line is easily attainable for Jones, who looks extremely comfortable commanding the Memphis offense.
Hammer the over 8 assist line tonight against the Mavericks.
