We are tracking four games very closely for tonight's NBA action. Have our resident handicappers located some killer betting value once again?

Denver Nuggets vs. Indiana Pacers

Covered by Jordan Sharp

The Pacers remain one of the teams to beat and they're once again big-time favorites at home tonight. Most of the top sportsbooks have a line of 10 points, but 10.5 is also there for the taking if you like Denver.

Though they're still 3.5 games up on the Heat, Indiana was left wondering what went wrong in a shocking loss at Orlando last night. The Pacers are going to want to redeem themselves and have a great chance of doing so, considering they're an amazing 24-2 SU at home this season.

The Nuggets are quickly falling out of contention in the Western Conference, as they're now five games outside of the eighth seed. They really need to start putting together wins on a consistent basis if they want to make the playoffs.

As for our NBA picks for this game, Jordan isn't touching this large spread and is instead taking the UNDER.

NBA Pick: UNDER 199

San Antonio Spurs vs. Detroit Pistons

Covered by Matthew Jordan

A new era begins in Detroit as Maurice Cheeks has been relieved of his coaching duties. Not a surprise when you consider how much this talented group has been under-performing.

The Pistons will hope to wipe the slate clean and get going when they play host to Tony Parker, Tim Duncan and the Spurs this evening. Current NBA odds show San Antonio favored by three to three-and-half in this matchup.

The Spurs haven't been as dominant as we've come to expect lately, going an even 5-5 SU over their past 10 contests. As for Detroit, they've won two in a row but are just 4-6 SU in their last 10. Fortunately for the Pistons, they're in the weak East and still have a legitimate chance of reaching the postseason.

Where's the NBA betting value in this game? Matthew thinks Detroit will show up with a good effort in response to the coaching change.

NBA Pick: Pistons +3.5

Boston Celtics vs. Milwaukee Bucks

Covered by Jason Lake

Not the most glamorous of matchups, that's for sure. Both teams have endured their fair share of struggles this season, so we wouldn't blame you from staying away entirely.

Boston has gone 7-18 SU on the road so far and is coming off a home loss to Dallas last night. Jared Sullinger has been playing lights out and Rajon Rondo appears to be finding his best form, but it didn't matter against the red-hot Mavericks.

As for Milwaukee, they've still yet to crack the double digits in the winning column (9-41 SU) for the season and come in having lost eight of their last ten. The Bucks, who are 1.5-point underdogs tonight, are 5-19 SU at home.

Jason has broken down this game closely and believes readers should gravitate towards a total play. He thinks these offenses will be stagnant, leading to a cashed ticket for UNDER backers.

NBA Pick: UNDER 191

Philadelphia 76ers vs. Golden State Warriors

Covered by Jeff Grant

For those of you that took the Clippers to cover the 16 points against the 76ers last night: well done. That was about as easy as a winner as you're going to find in the association.

Surely Philadelphia can do a little better tonight in Oracle Arena. Or not. The Warriors are fighting for their lives in the competitive Western Conference and aren't going to be messing around at all tonight, so another blowout could easily be on the cards.

Golden State checks in at 15-9 SU at home, with Philadelphia sporting a poor 7-19 SU mark on the road so far this season.

It's no surprise to see the Warriors favored by such a large margin (-14.5 to -15), but should we pick them to cover the huge number? Jeff doesn't care about the chalk and has no qualms about backing a rout in Golden State's favor.

NBA Pick: Warriors -14.5
