We split another pair of NBA Picks last night in what was a crazy Wednesday evening. However with only two NBA Odds out for tonight’s two games, we have to find value somewhere. Let’s see if we can parlay together these two games tonight, in order to pad our bankrolls for tomorrow. 

Warriors vs. Cavs
The fans watching TNT are going to get a show tonight, as the Cleveland Cavaliers play host to the Golden State Warriors. The NBA Odds have the Cavs as -3 ½ home favorites, with a total of 214 ½ tonight, and with both teams rested, it should be an epic showdown between two of the NBA’s best.

The Warriors are underdogs for only the seventh time this season, as they are 3-3 ATS this season when playing as the dog. All six of the previous games have been on the road, but the sportsbooks figure on the road, and against LeBron James is enough to put the league’s best team as an underdog.

However I think the Warriors can cover their NBA odds tonight, and I am taking the points. Golden State has been slowing down some recently, but they are still 8-2 ATS in their last ten games playing against winning teams. Even though they are 2-5 ATS in their last seven games, some of those were heading into the All Star Break, where every team, including the Warriors, were worn down and ready for some time off.

Look for Stephen Curry to take Kyrie Irving to school and back tonight, and even though the Warriors don’t have much to throw at James, I could still see them collectively playing good enough defense to cover the spread, or even win outright tonight.

Thunder vs. Suns
Phoenix is coming off of a game last night in Denver where they crushed the Suns. Now they have to travel back home to welcome in a rested Thunder team. The NBA Odds have the Thunder as -5 road favorites in this one, with a total of 216 ½. With the Suns tired, and the Thunder looking almost unstoppable even without Kevin Durant right now, I am laying the points tonight in this one.

Although Eric Bledsoe and now Brandon Knight are both very good defenders for the Suns at the guard position, Russell Westbrook has been staking his claim in the MVP discussion recently. On top of that, the new addition of Enes Kanter, and the recent surging of Serge Ibaka, (see what I did there?) the Thunder are going to destroy Phoenix tonight in second chance points and rebounds. While Alex Len is playing very well in only his second NBA season, he won’t be enough to even up what should be a big rebounding margin tonight.

The Suns have been having problems putting together back-to-back performances this season. They are 0-7 ATS in their last seven games following an ATS win, while the Thunder are 7-0 ATS in their last seven games as favorites. On top of that, the Thunder have now covered seven in a row, and Phoenix will not stop that streak tonight.

NBA Pick: 2-team parlay: Warriors +3 ½ & Thunder -5
