It was another profitable night of NBA Picks on Sunday, as we cashed all three of our plays, and our two best bets. Now we head into the final half-week of NBA, and I have found two of my best NBA Picks.

Wizards vs. Nets
The Wizards and Nets are playing for nothing heading into one of their final games of the season, and that is enough to eliminate almost every bit of defense from these two teams agendas tonight. Even though the Nets have shut down Brook Lopez and Thaddeus Young, and even though John Wall might be done for the season as well, this game could still be very high scoring, despite all of that offense missing.

Right now the NBA Odds have the Nets as +5 ½ home dogs in this one, but the total of 211½ is by far a better play on the over for this one. The Nets and Wizards have been giving up a ton of points as of late, and with both teams coming off a game last night, the over looks like the play.

Both teams cashed the over yesterday, and both games up over 110 points. Brooklyn game up 129 to the Pacers, and even though the Nets are only 6-9 cashing the over on no rest for the season, they have played very few games where they get to play at home on no rest, which should help. Plus, they have been cashing the over with great regularity recently. Last night was their third over cash in a row, and they have up 121 points per game in those three.

The Wizards on the other hand are 13-7 cashing the over on no rest this season, and they too have been giving up points. They have given up almost 108 points per game in their last six games, and in the games they gave up fewer points, they ended up scoring big. This has led to the over cashing in five of their last six games, and tonight should make six of seven.

Rockets vs. Wolves
The Houston Rockets’ playoff lives are on the line here tonight against the Timberwolves in Minnesota, and despite coming off a tougher than expected game against the Lakers yesterday, the Rockets are a -3½ road favorite against the Wolves, with a total of 216½.

I know most of you haven’t watched a Wolves game almost the entire season, but they have looked really good over their last three games, winning all three of them SU and ATS. They were against some good teams as well. They famously beat Golden State in overtime, and then they went on to beat Sacramento and Portland on the road.

This team is one of the Western Conference teams poised to make a leap next season, and if they are showing signs of that now, I want to jump on board. The Rockets are not a good team, and as long as Minnesota can slow down James Harden, I like them to cover here. Houston is the worst team in the league playing on no rest at 7-13 ATS, and while the Wolves have not been great at home, this is a different Wolves team we have seen over the last three games. Their defense has been solid, their offense is running smoothly, ad Karl-Anthony Towns is looking like a future hall of famer already. I think the Wolves would love to play playoff spoiler to the Rockets here in this one, and considering the Rockets are coming off the back to back, and giving up 108 points per game on the road this season, take the points with the home dog as your NBA Pick.
