A light Tuesday slate of just six games doesn't mean you have to skimp on value. Here are the top betting trends for the night's action:

Utah Jazz (-3, 219.5) at Brooklyn Nets

Here's a pretty simple trend: Utah can't stop winning. The Jazz are 10-1 against the spread since Dec. 21, during which they own the NBA's best net rating (11.5 points per 100 possessions) and most efficient offense (119.9). During that same span, the Nets are 3-7 ATS with the second-worst offense (99.8). Think Kyrie Irving's return might help? Brooklyn has actually been a worse bet with him (5-6-1 ATS) than without him (13-13 ATS).

Trend play: Jazz -3

Houston Rockets (-5, 238) at Memphis Grizzlies

Nothing says pick-me-up quite like playing the Golden State Warriors, whose opponents are 25-15 ATS (62.5%) in their next game, the second-best mark in the NBA. The latest beneficiaries are the Grizzlies, who beat Golden State for their fifth straight ATS win and fourth straight at home. The Rockets have dropped their last four ATS away and are 5-8-1 ATS as road chalk this season.

Trend play: Grizzlies +5

New York Knicks at Milwaukee Bucks (-16.5, 227)

The Bucks have dropped three straight ATS as double-digit favorites, including a narrow win as 18-point favorites on Jan. 1. Before that game, though, favorites of at least 16.5 points covered eight straight, dating back to 2018. During the last three years, no team has lost more games as double-digit 'dogs than the Knicks (19-37-1 ATS), who have lost six of their last seven in that spot.

Trend play: Bucks -16.5

Dallas Mavericks (-8, 223.5) at Golden State Warriors

For whatever reason, the Mavericks are at their best away from home. Dallas is a stellar 12-5 ATS in road games - tied for the NBA's second-best mark - and 6-2 ATS as a road favorite, which is tops among all teams with at least five games in that spot. The Warriors are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games as home 'dogs but have struggled to score, leading to an 8-2 under mark.

Trend play: Mavericks -8, under 223.5
