We head into a stacked Friday night, which has a ton of potential NBA Odds value to be had. Don't miss the best NBA picks for the night & catch the TEASER we offer as well!

Sixers vs. Wizards
The Wizards are basically done for the season if they lose this game tonight, but according to the sportsbooks, the NBA odds have the Sixers as +10 underdogs, with a large total of 215 points. While neither one of the lines for this one appeal to me, a teaser might be just the formula to make some profits off the game.

The total has already been bet up tremendously from where it opened, and now sitting at 215 points, the over value might be gone from it altogether. However, teasing the line back down in a four-point teaser might be the way to go, especially if you know where to place those points for the double-digit spread.

Outside of their dud against the Hawks the other night, the Sixers have been playing teams closer. They beat the Suns last week and then played the Warriors and Pistons to only three points after being huge underdogs in both. In fact if you take away their game against the Hawks, the Sixers have covered in seven of their last ten overall games.

Teasing up the line from +10 to +14, and then lowering the total from 215 to 211 is where I am going on this one. While these two teams have not met yet this season, the over has cashed in their last two games, and as long as Philly brings some defense with them tonight, they should be able to keep this one within 15 points at the end, and score enough on this awful Wizards defense to cash the over in our teaser as well.

Bulls vs. Nuggets
Since beating he Cavaliers a few weeks ago, things have just been going downhill for the Bulls, and while it looked as if they could compete, it also looks like they should give up on this unit and make some trades to start the rebuilding process. Tonight might further those feelings, because the Bulls are in Denver, and they could be without several important players in this one.

Pau Gasol and Jimmy Butler could miss this game tonight, and that would take a ton away from both the Bulls’ offense and especially defense. Nikola Mirotic and Joakim Noah are of course still out, which leaves Chicago very thin up front if Gasol misses tonight.

However, even with the Bulls hurting, the over could be an interesting play in this one. The total is sitting at only 204½, and with the way Chicago has already been playing defense lately, that number is seemingly too low.

The over has cashed at 18-7 in the Bulls last 25 games overall, and at 15-8 on the road this season. The over is an amazing 10-2 in their last 12 road games, and the Nuggets haven’t done much worse at being reliable over cashers. The over is 8-4 in Denver’s last 12 games, and they have cashed the over in six of their last eight home games. With the Nuggets giving up 107 points per game in their last ten games, and with the Bulls giving up over 104 points per game on the road this season, take the over in this one with your NBA picks before the sharps catch on and start pushing the line upward.
