We nailed both of our picks on Tuesday with a couple of easy under cashes and now with our record back close to even, I am here to continue this little streak into another couple of winning NBA Expert Picks here on Wednesday. 

Hawks vs. Wizards

The Hawks and Wizards are both in pretty bad slumps right now. The Hawks have lost four straight games both SU and ATS and they will be without two starters tonight in Paul Millsap and Kent Bazemore.

The Wizards, on the other hand, have lost four of their last five SU and are coming into tonight losers of five straight games ATS. One of these teams has to win and cover this one and I expect it to be the Wizards for several reasons.

The first is the Hawks’ offense is already bad, but without Millsap it’s even worse. According to Basketball Reference, without Millsap on the court this season, the Hawks are scoring just 101.5 points per 100 possessions compared to 107.4 when Millsap is playing.

Furthermore, the Wizards have beaten up on the Hawks twice this season when they were healthy and now the Wizards are at home and have added pieces since their last meeting. Guys like Bojan Bogdanovic and Brandon Jennings have been huge additions to this Wizards bench and I see that playing tonight at home. I am laying the points with Washington on the first half and full game spread to extract some extra value tonight.

Bucks vs. Kings

The Kings put up a good showing against the Spurs a few nights ago and now they have had some time to rest before their meeting with the Bucks tonight. Milwaukee is one of the hottest teams in the NBA right now and even coming off the back to back from last night, they might be a popular NBA Odds selection tonight as -4 road favorites against the Kings.

The Bucks are only 3-5 ATS this season when playing as a road favorite though and considering they are just 7-10 ATS on no rest, I see the total as the better play. The Bucks have cashed the under in four straight games coming off no rest and against a poor offensive team like the Kings, that should continue tonight.

The Bucks are allowing just 102 points per game in their last four on no rest and two of those games were against the two teams who have won the last two NBA championships.

The better trend is simply that the Bucks are 12-2 cashing the under in their last 14 games and with the Kings rested and the Bucks coming in on no rest, this one could get ugly.
