Eight NBA games are set to tip off for Tuesday’s In-Season tournament action. Five games will begin the slate at 7:30 p.m. ET and the Golden State Warriors will wrap things with a 10:p.m. ET matchup against the Sacramento Kings. Looking for a sports betting edge ahead of tip-off? We’ve got you covered with three worthwhile plus-money options.

Darius Garland over 5.5 first-quarter points (+102)

It’s no secret that the Atlanta Hawks are a poor defensive team and I’m looking to take advantage of Trae Young’s matchup with Garland here. Only three teams are allowing more first-quarter points per game than Atlanta so far this season and Garland has had his way with the Hawks early in recent years.

Sengun is finally being given the freedom he deserves as a creator and is averaging a career-high 5.6 assists per game this season. Derrick Lively (back) could miss a second straight game for the Dallas Mavericks in this matchup, and that wouldn’t fare well for their struggling defense. Sengun has tallied 17 assists in two career…
