Here are the games we've taken a closer look at for Wednesday.</p> <p><b><a target="_blank" title="NBA Picks: Pacers vs. Celtics" href="/nba-basketball/free-picks/nba-picks-pacers-vs-knicks-a-35119/">Indiana Pacers vs. New York Knicks</a></b></p> <p><b><i>Covered by Jason Lake</i></b></p> <p>The Pacers, along with San Antonio, have the league's best record at 9-1. They've also been killing it against the number, going 7-3 ATS through 10 games.</p> <p>It looks like Indiana isn't playing around at all this season after getting so close to the NFA Finals last year. They've looked extremely focused each and every game and that's not going to change at Madison Square Garden tonight.</p> <p><span style="font-size:1em;">Things couldn't be any different for the Knicks. They've been a complete disaster so far, going 3-7 both SU and ATS.</span><span style="font-size:1em;"> </span></p> <p>When they square off tonight, Indiana will come in favored by 5.5 points on the <a target="_blank" title="Live NBA Odds &amp; Betting Lines" href="/betting-odds/nba-basketball/">NBA odds</a> board. Jason believes there's still a lot value on the Pacers here, as they've clearly shown to be the (much) better basketball team thus far.</p> <p>[gameodds]5/247847/?r-1=43-19-349/us[/gameodds]</p> <p><b><a target="_blank" title="NBA Picks: Celtics vs. Spurs" href="/nba-basketball/free-picks/nba-picks-celtics-vs-spurs-a-35120/">Boston Celtics vs. San Antonio Spurs</a></b></p> <p><b><i>Covered by Jason Lake</i></b><b style="font-size:1em;"> </b></p> <p>The only thing surprising about Boston's season is the fact they've actually managed to win four games already this season.<span style="font-size:1em;"> </span></p> <p>This is a team building for the future, but Brad Stevens clearly knows how to coach and already has these guys believing they can compete day in and day out.</p> <p><span style="font-size:1em;">It's going to be tough sledding tonight against the Spurs though, especially with confidence low after a walloping at the hands of the Rockets last night. San Antonio meanwhile was off and will be fully rested.</span><span style="font-size:1em;"> </span></p> <p>Instead of picking a side here, Jason likes the look of the UNDER 193. Boston hasn't actually been too shabby defensively and San Antonio is currently ranked second in defensive efficiency.</p> <p>[gameodds]5/247854/?r-1=43-19-349/us[/gameodds]</p> <p><b><a target="_blank" title="NBA Picks of the Day" href="/nba-basketball/free-picks/nba-picks-the-day-wednesday-a-35108/">Jordan Sharp's NBA Picks of the Day</a></b></p> <p>If you've been following Jordan's picks, you know he's been on quite the roll lately. Can he keep it going with two more winners tonight?<span style="font-size:1em;"> </span></p> <p>His first play comes in the meeting between Minnesota and the LA Clippers. The Timberwolves lost a close one in Washington last night and now have no rest ahead of this date with Chris Paul and the Clippers.<span style="font-size:1em;"> </span></p> <p>The NBA odds are extremely tight, with Minnesota currently favored by a single point. Jordan thinks LA is worth an investment tonight and will be taking them as small road dogs.</p> <p><span style="font-size:1em;">To wrap up his NBA picks of the day, Jordan likes the look of a total play in the Sacramento/Phoenix game. This is the back-end of a home-and-home set, with the Suns hoping to get some revenge after letting one slip away in Sacramento last night.</span><span style="font-size:1em;"> </span></p> The O/U stands at 195.5 and the OVER is what is getting recommended in this spot. Jordan expects DeMarcus Cousins to tear it up in the post once again, while the possible return of Eric Bledsoe could boost Phoenix's offensive prospects.
