Welcome to a huge night of NBA Odds as the college basketball season is officially over! It’s pro time for the rest of the spring and most of the summer. Here are some late-season value picks for the big slate of NBA Odds on Tuesday.

Bulls vs. Knicks

The Knicks may be eliminated from the playoffs, but they would love to continue beating up on the Bull sin order to try and ruin their playoff chances. New York has beaten Chicago twice this season and while I doubt they make it a third with Chicago coming into this on motivated, Carmelo Anthony will be back tonight for the Knicks, so this one could be interesting.

However, at this point in the season, spread betting can get a little wild. If you read my feature last month about the final month of the season, you’ll know that we are approaching over cashing season. I think tonight’s Knicks and Bulls game is a perfect one to target for such a thing.

As I wrote a few days ago, the Bulls are starting to play faster with Rajon Rondo back in Coach Hoiberg’s good graces. Combine that with Anthony returning and giving the Knicks some offense, we could see a fast paced game here. The Knicks obviously have nothing to play for, but playing spoiler to a conference rival might be enough to motivate them to play this one tough.

Wolves vs. Warriors

The Wolves were able to squeak by last night against the Blazers and while that didn’t do anything for them considering they are already eliminated from the playoffs, it did help the Nuggets and Pelicans, who were probably happy to see Portland lose.

However, after that emotional game, the Wolves are back at it tonight in Golden State against the Warriors. Minnesota being eliminated from the playoffs won’t be enough to get them to stop playing hard, but it apparently has been enough to get them to stop playing as much defense.

The Wolves come into this one cashing the over at 5-0-1 in their last six games and I see them keeping the streak alive here on Tuesday. While the under has cashed in all three of these two teams’ meetings this season, this one has a lot less weight than some of the others. The Wolves have been eliminated and Golden State is very close to wrapping up the 1st seed in the West.

With the Warriors still averaging close to 120 points per game at home and with something still to play for, I see a high-scoring and fast-paced game tonight that should lead to the over being the play.
