We've got a busy night on our hands, so let's get right to it and start examining all of the NBA odds. Which plays are our handicappers taking to the sportsbooks?

Washington Wizards vs. Atlanta Hawks

Covered by Jordan Sharp

Both teams are in a bad way right now, with the Hawks having lost six straight and the Wizards losing three in a row. Nonetheless, they still take up the fifth and sixth spots in the Eastern Conference respectively.

Check in with us shortly to see which play Jordan feels most comfortable with tonight in the ATL.

Pick: Wizards +1

Indiana Pacers vs. Minnesota Timberwolves

Covered by Jason Lake

The Pacers kicked off the second half of the season in style with a relatively home win over the Hawks. Now they'll do battle with Kevin Love and the Timberwolves, who need an excellent run to get back into the Western Conference playoff race.

Jason is looking for a good defensive intensity in this one and thinks the UNDER is the best bet.

Pick: UNDER 197.5

New York Knicks vs. New Orleans Pelicans

Covered by David Lawrence

More disappointment for Carmelo Anthony and the Knicks last night, as they fell in a hard-fought contest with the Grizzlies. Next up for New York is a road test against Anthony Davis and the Pelicans.

David simply doesn't have much faith in the dysfunctional Knicks at this time and is therefore thinking New Orleans is the right side with our NBA picks.

Pick: Pelicans -4

Boston Celtics vs. Phoenix Suns

Covered by Ron Patrick

The Suns refuse to give in and currently find themselves as the sixth seed in the West. They're being chased by a few solid teams though, meaning they really have no other option but to keep winning ballgames.

Phoenix plays host to Rajon Rondo and the Celtics tonight, and Ron reckons the home team will take care of business and win by at least eight.

Pick: Suns -7

San Antonio Spurs vs. Portland Trail Blazers

Covered by Jason Lake

What a big win out of the Spurs last night, as they toppled a red-hot Clippers team at Staples Center. San Antonio improved to 21-7 SU on the road, by far the best record of any team in the association.

Jason believes the Spurs will be able to keep it going with another statement win in Portland tonight. He's backing San Antonio as a rare underdog in the NBA odds.

Pick: Spurs +3.5

Houston Rockets vs. Los Angeles Lakers

Covered by Swinging Johnson

The hottest team in the NBA right now is Houston. They've won seven games in a row, which in turn has helped them surge into the third spot in the Western Conference standings.

It's no surprise to see the Rockets favored by so many points against the struggling Lakers, who have lost three in a row and are tied for the worst record in the conference. Swinging Johnson is on Houston.

Pick: Rockets -8.5

[gameodds]5/256053/?r-1=43-19-349/us[/gameodds]

Golden State Warriors vs. Sacramento Kings

Covered by Ron Patrick

It's looking unlikely that DeMarcus Cousins will be able to play tonight, which would be a huge blow to Sacramento's chances of overcoming Golden State.

The Warriors need every win they can get in this tight battle for playoff spots and Ron is of the opinion they're worth adding to your sports picks on the road.

Pick: Warriors -5

Chicago Bulls vs. Toronto Raptors

Covered by Swinging Johnson

It's amazing how Tom Thibodeau has been able to keep these Bulls playing well despite a constant flow of injuries and the departure of Luol Deng.

Chicago faces a tough task in Toronto tonight though, with the Raptors having won three in a row. Nonetheless, Swinging Johnson foresees another gritty performance out of the Bulls and is picking them to cover.

Pick: Bulls +2.5
