NBA Picks of the day
Wednesday brings about some great NBA betting options, as there are a dozen games on tap for this evening. I have two games that I have my eye on, so let’s take a look and see if there is value on this busy evening.
Bulls vs. Celtics
Another classic battle of the Bulls and Celtics will take place on Wednesday evening, and Chicago comes into Boston as just a one-point underdog. Chicago is hurting and need the All Star Break for some much needed R&R. However, tonight against the Celtics, I like the Bulls on the road.
Chicago is awful at home ATS, but on the road, the Bulls are 14-10 ATS this season. Against the Celtics, Chicago brings their A-game. The Bulls have won eight of their last nine games against the Celtics overall, and those were with Rajon Rondo. I know the C’s have been playing well, but against the good teams, the absence of a true point guard will hurt. The Bulls have covered against the C’s in four of their last five meetings, and I think they will do it again tonight in their first game playing Boston without Rondo.
NBA Pick: Bulls +1
Wizards vs. Pistons
The Pistons host the Wizards Wednesday, and come in as -2 favorites in the NBA Odds. Washington has been a tough team ATS this season, but their overall SU record keeps people from realizing it. The Wizards have also been very good at starting out the game hot and in a groove recently, which will help them on the road tonight.
Tonight, with this spread very close, I like the Wizards. The Pistons have already demolished the Wizards twice this season, once by 32 points. John Wall is back to being healthy, and I think him, combined with some motivation tonight will get the job done against the Pistons. The Wizards are on a nice four game winning streak both ATS and SU, and I think they make it five tonight. In that span, Washington has held opponents to 87.5 points per game, and against a Pistons team that doesn’t score well to begin with, I think Washington wins outright.
