It’s another wild night of NBA Odds upcoming, as the league has blessed us with ten games on the slate tonight. I have identified multiple NBA Picks that could be profitable tonight, and here I am releasing two of them absolutely free of charge.

Bulls vs. Sixers
Chicago is struggling right now without their two lead guards, and arguably their two best players. However tonight they have a seemingly very winnable road game against the Sixers, and the NBA odds  have the Bulls as only -6 favorites on the road, with a total of 186 ½. Chicago hasn’t been blowing anyone out this season by any means. Their average margin of victory is only 2.1, which is one of the lowest among playoff teams this season.

However tonight instead of looking at the spread, I am a bit more focused on the total tonight of 186 ½. While the Bulls have been known as a good defensive team over the years, this season they are not so much. While they have the ability to play good defense against the Sixers, they have been inconsistent and apathetic on defense this season, especially against losing teams.

The over has cashed in four of the last five games for the Bulls, and while the under is trending recently for them on the road, they over is also 5-2 in the Bulls last seven games against home teams who have a wining percentage of 40% or less. However while they were cashing the over with great regularity against losing teams overall to start the season, they have cashed the under in their last six games against losing teams. However with a low total tonight and the Sixers on the other side, I see the Bulls taking care of business offensively at least tonight.

Not Enough Options? Check Out These Three Hot Picks for Tonight

Wolves vs. Suns
This could be another game where the speed and pace alone will be enough to cash the over. The NBA Odds have the Suns as -5 favorites at home tonight, but the total is once again the play here at 206. Brandon Knight will miss this game for the Suns due to a badly sprained ankle he suffered in the Suns’ game on Monday. He could still be on crutches right now, so his prospects don’t look great right now.

However even without Knight, the Suns might play a bit better. Knight was still finding his way into the offense, and now with Gerald Green to likely step up, the Suns are going to be reverting back to seven seconds or less tonight.

With the Wolves and their top ten pace as well, the total of 206 is simply too low. While the Wolves don’t have the greatest offensive efficiency, a lot of that was due to their first half with all of the injuries. With most of their guys healthy right now, Minnesota will be able to keep up with Phoenix tonight.

The over is 6-2 in the Suns’ last eight games following a SU loss, and the over is 5-1 in their last six following an ATS loss as well. While both teams have been cashing the under recently, this is an overreaction by the sportsbooks. We are approaching the part of the season where defense goes completely out the window for most teams (Wonder why I have been recommending the over recently?). Take the over and add it to your NBA picks.
