I have found my two best game selections for tonight’s NBA Odds, and as usual, I am releasing them free of charge to you my loyal followers. Join me inside to get your free NBA picks for today.

Knicks vs. Pistons
The Pistons played last night and got beaten by the surging Boston Celtics, and now they head back home where the Knicks are waiting for them to play tonight against New York. It’s now or never for these fringe Eastern Conference teams, and the sportsbooks recognize that, favoring the Pistons at -4 ½ at home, with a total of 202.

This will be the first game of the night and it will be the only basketball on for two whole hours before the three late games start, but that shouldn’t matter for our NBA Picks on this game. With the Pistons tired, and potentially without one of their more unheralded players tonight, it could be a nice opportunity to fade the Pistons off the back to back and take the points with new York.

The Knicks have been steady on the road this season at 15-10 ATS, and while they are only 10-8 ATS on the road against Eastern Conference opponents, the Pistons could be without Kentavious Caldwell-Pope tonight after he exited the Pistons’ game last night with a groin injury. If for some reason he can’t go tonight, that puts another hole in an offense that for lack of a better term has been the definition of average this season. While the Knicks don’t set the world on fire either, they are rested and at full strength. As long as the Knicks can keep Reggie Jackson out of the paint and Andre Drummond off the boards, this one should be a close game, or an upset altogether.

Detroit is only 4-5-1 ATS this year when playing on no rest, and while they have gotten lucky without having too many back to backs over the month of January, they are still 0-3 ATS in their last three games playing on no rest. Even though the Knicks have lost four of their last five games SU, they have played some of the tougher teams in both conferences, and after beating the Pistons in their first meeting this season, look for New York to be a solid wager again tonight.

Rockets vs. Suns
Under their new head coach, Earl Watson, the Suns fought hard against the Raptors, but they still couldn’t come away with a win. However, now with a new head coach calling the shots, Markieff Morris has been freed and he looks like he is ready to feats after his performance against Toronto. Now the Suns come into this one as +7 home dogs on the NBA Odds board, and while covering the spread is not out of the question, the total looks like a better wager tonight at 213 points.

The Suns have been pretty horrible scoring the ball without their two top guards combined with Jeff Hornacek calling the plays. However, now with Watson running the show, the Suns look looser and better suited for scoring the ball. The Suns have already bee much better scoring the ball at hoe as evidenced by their performance against the Raptors, and on the season Phoenix has averaged 103 points per game when playing at home this season. Against the defenseless Rockets tonight, I expect nothing less, and I’m going with the over because of it.

The over has now cashed in five straight road games for the Rockets this season, and in their last ten games the Rockets are giving up an astounding 114 points per game. Houston has also cashed the over in five straight games overall, so leading into this one, with Dwight Howard coming back from his one-game suspension, look for this to be a fast-paced and high scoring game. The total is simply too low for this one.
