We've got a lot of games covered tonight, so come see what our handicappers think about the NBA betting value that's there for exploiting.

Golden State Warriors vs. Chicago Bulls

Covered by Jordan Sharp

Both teams are firmly in the playoff picture in their respective conferences. The Warriors will take a four-game winning streak into the Windy City tonight and are actually favored on the road against Joakim Noah and the Bulls.

Jordan has thought extensively about this one and sees good value in taking Chicago, who haven't been too shabby (7-3 over last 10) lately either.

Pick: Bulls +3

Atlanta Hawks vs. Boston Celtics

Covered by Jason Lake

The Hawks are in a scary place right now. They've lost nine of ten and have slipped all the way down to eighth in the Eastern Conference.

They've really got to re-gain their confidence, with Detroit, Cleveland and the New York Knicks all capable of catching them for the final playoff spot. Jason thinks Atlanta will do well tonight and subsequently cover as short road dogs.

Pick: Hawks +2

New Orleans Pelicans vs. Dallas Mavericks

Covered by Jason Lake

Two teams going in different directions here – the Mavericks have won three in a row and have taken over the seventh spot in the West, while the Pelicans have dropped four consecutive games and are now 10 games under .500.

After considering his options, Jason has opted to go with the hotter team and is picking Dallas to win by eight or more points tonight.

Pick: Mavericks -7

Los Angeles Lakers vs. Memphis Grizzlies

Covered by David Lawrence

Such a beautiful disaster going on for the Lakers. They own the worst record in the Western Conference and Pau Gasol just ripped into his coach and teammates after last night's loss in Indiana.

Another loss seems almost a certainty tonight in Memphis, considering the Grizzlies have been playing well and still have a lot to play for. Regardless of the heavy chalk, David is selecting Memphis with his NBA picks.

Pick: Grizzlies -11

Detroit Pistons vs. San Antonio Spurs

Covered by Doug Upstone

You never know what kind of effort you're going to get out of the Pistons. Though they've stamped out some impressive wins this season, they've been disappointing more often than not, making them a risky proposition with our NBA picks.

That said, this sure is a lot of points to be getting. Doug understands how efficient San Antonio can be, but he's thinking Detroit will at least make things interesting this evening.

Pick: Pistons +10.5

Houston Rockets vs. Los Angeles Clippers

Covered by Jason Lake

This is the most anticipated game of the night, considering both the Clippers and Rockets have been playing lights out basketball. Houston has surged into the third seed in the West, thanks to a run that's seen them win nine of their last ten.

Chris Paul and the Clippers, though, are looking really strong as well and have the benefit of being at home, where they're 23-5 on the season. Jason is on Los Angeles to cover this number tonight.

Pick: Clippers -5

Brooklyn Nets vs. Portland Trail Blazers

Covered by Ross Benjamin

Even with LaMarcus Aldridge out, the Trail Blazers are still finding ways to win games. They've notched victories in three consecutive games, keeping them right in the thick of things in the playoff race.

The Nets, meanwhile, have turned their season around and are 6-4 over their last 10. They're listed as underdogs for tonight's game inside Rose Garden and Ross expects them to put up a great fight, leading to the cashed ticket for Brooklyn backers.

Pick: Nets +2.5
