It’s a stacked night of NBA Odds on Wednesday with 10 games to choose from. Our handicappers are ready to release all of their plays for the day, but first check out our two NBA Picks of the Day!

Warriors vs. Spurs

While late-season NBA action can be a little tricky, the Spurs and Warriors tonight should be as close to playoff basketball as we are going to get before mid-April. The last time these two teams played everyone was rested on national television, but this time around everyone but Kevin Durant is healthy and we could see a nice competition with some hefty defense from both sides.

If that’s the case, it should be especially true in the first half and with a total of 107. Since I’ve been writing this, the total has already dropped a half point and considering these two had first-half totals of 108 and 110 their first two meetings, I think we could see a close but good one in the first half.

At home this season, the Spurs are allowing 51.4 points per first half and in their last five games overall they have allowed just 45 points per first half.

The Warriors don’t get the credit they deserve on defense this season, but if coach Steve Kerr has his guys engaged on that end of the court tonight, I would be surprised if both teams cracked 50 points. Without Durant, the Spurs’ defense is much more ready to throw their two best defenders against the Warriors’ two best offensive players.

Wizards vs. Clippers

The Wizards are coming off a game last night against the Lakers and while they needed the whole game to get the job done, now they have to head back into Staples Center to play a much tougher opponent in the Clippers.

However, I am once again laying off the spread and going with a play on the over at 220. The Wizards have been the best team at cashing the over on the second night of a back to back this season at 13-3 and I have cashed at least three or four winning tickets this season in this exact same spot.

Washington is also 23-12 cashing the over on the road and when they are on the road against the Western Conference, they have cashed the over at 10-2.

On top of that, while the Clippers have been pretty good at cashing the under at home this season, with the Wizards pushing the pace more and more as the season draws to a close, I suspect that the back to back will be enough for LA to score about 115 points in this one, leading to an easy over cash for us! I see a similar score to the first time these two teams played in Washington at 117-110.
