It’s a short slate of odds here on Tuesday and even with not a lot to play for both teams, there are still some valuable NBA Picks tonight that you can use to win some cash!

  Pelicans vs. Lakers

 

The Lakers may be playing themselves right out of their draft pick this season. The Suns and Nets have already clinched the top two lottery odds spots, but if the Lakers win tonight and tomorrow, and the Magic keep losing, LA would lose their draft pick.

This would be a bad loss for this team, even with the young guns playing well. LA needs that pick to continue the rebuilding process and losing it would be a big setback. Knowing this, I doubt the Lakers play their guys hard for one of these final two games.

They play the Warriors on Wednesday too, which will surely be a loss, so while they have made it close, I think everyone on that team knows what’s at stake.

For the Pelicans, they have been eliminated and have been playing fast and loose lately.

The Pelicans are 5-2 cashing the over in their last seven games and while they are only 1-2 cashing the over against the Lakers this season, with nothing to play for and the Lakers almost trying to lose this game, take the over as your NBA pick.

Suns vs. Kings

 

Because of the Lakers’ recent winning streak, the Suns have clinched the second best odds in the upcoming draft lottery. For a team already stacked with young talent, if they can ensure they get to draft Lonzo Ball or Markelle Fultz with their first pick, it’s a winning season for the Suns.

The Kings are also inactive tank mode and they are hoping to stay in the top eight of the lottery with their win-loss record and tonight this game is going to look more like an exhibition than a regular season game.

It’s the final game of the regular season for the Suns and it’s the final home game for the Kings. Sacramento will want to put a good showing on for their fans who they drug through the mud this season and all in all the over looks like the play.

While the over has not cashed as much over the final week of the season this year, the Suns have cashed the over in seven of their last nine games and even with the Kings not cashing the over at all in divisional games, I see it happening here in a meaningless game.
