There is plenty of value on the board, but we have selected two plays on the total that we feel you must add to your NBA picks tonight. Which games have we selected, and what are our predictions on the outcomes?

We have reached another end of the workweek, which means the NBA is all over tonight’s schedule. Several teams are in action tonight, and I have several free NBA Picks that I think will cash you winners this evening.

Nets vs. Wizards

Washington hosts Brooklyn tonight and the NBA Odds for this one favor the Nets by only a point on the road. The Wizards have been one of the NBA’s surprise teams when it comes to ATS, but I’m staying away from the spread as I think that the best betting value lies in the total.

At 186, I think this number is a few points too low. Both teams will be in the mid 90s tonight, and I think the over is the play. The over has cashed in the last two times these two have played, including a 115-113 game earlier this year. Also, at home this season, the Wizards have cashed their over 14-9-1 this season.

My Pick: OVER 186


Hornets vs. Hawks

New Orleans heads into Atlanta this evening to play the Hawks, and NBA Odds makers have the spread favoring Atlanta by -4 ½, with a total of 194. Both of these teams are dealing with some injuries, as Eric Gordon for the Hornets is still banged up with his back, while the Hawks could be without a few good roll players tonight as well. However, once again I’m placing my sports picks on the total.

The last five times these two have met the total has gone under, as well as in eight of their last ten. Earlier this season they played one another and the final was 95-86. The under has also cashed in five in a row when these two play in Atlanta, and the under has cashed 11 out of the last 13 times these two have played in Atlanta. Take the under.

My Pick: UNDER 194
