Wednesdays are always busy in the NBA and we've got another full night of games awaiting us, including some that could prove crucial in the playoff race in both conferences. Check out our NBA betting odds report for tonight inside.

Brooklyn Nets vs. New York Knicks
Covered by Jason Lake
Another battle for supremacy in the Big Apple, though the Nets have obviously taken the mantle this season, thanks to a surge over recent months which has seen them climb seven games over .500.

As for the Knicks, they've been playing a lot better recently, going 7-3 of their last 10, and they're only a game back of the Hawks for the eighth spot now. New York will come in favored by 2.5 points at most sportsbooks for tonight's battle at MSG.

NBA Pick: Nets +2.5

Chicago Bulls vs. Atlanta Hawks
Covered by Jason Lake
Speaking of Atlanta, they'll be at home versus Joakim Noah and the Bulls this evening. The Hawks have settled down after that killer losing streak back last month, but they could find it difficult against this tough-minded Chicago team.

The Bulls, while just an even 18-18 SU on the road, have won two in a row and seven of their last ten, so we shouldn't be too taken aback to see them favored by either 2 or 2.5 points at the sportsbooks. Jason's backing Chicago tonight.

NBA Pick: Bulls -2

Milwaukee Bucks vs. Miami Heat
Covered by Jordan Sharp
Thanks to a three-game winning streak (and Indiana's recent collapse), Miami has taken over the top spot in the Eastern Conference. They'll come up against Milwaukee in South Beach tonight, with oddsmakers obviosuly having the Heat as massive double-digit favorites in the NBA betting odds.

The Heat crushed the Bucks by 21 in Milwaukee last Saturday and it's hard to imagine them not doing something similar tonight. Their destiny is in their own hands in terms of getting the number one seed and they're picking up momentum at the right time. Jordan's zeroing in on a total play for our NBA picks.

NBA Pick: OVER 195

Los Angeles Clippers vs. Phoenix Suns
Covered by Jordan Sharp
The Clippers are zeroing in on the third seed in the Western Conference, as they're now three games up on fourth-place Houston. They're recorded three consecutive victories and will hope to keep it going against Phoenix.

It's been a successful couple of weeks for the Suns, who have gone 8-2 over their last 10 despite dropping their latest game to the Lakers. Phoenix is currently favored by three points for tonight. Tough to pass up the Clippers as dogs, right?

NBA Pick: Clippers +3

[gameodds]5/260798/?r3=43-19-349/dec&r-1=43-19-349/us[/gameodds]

Los Angeles Lakers vs. Sacramento Kings
Covered by Matthew Jordan
Two of the three worst teams in the West meet up for pride tonight, with the Kings getting the luxury of being at home, where they're 15-21 SU this season. The Lakers check in at a miserable 11-26 SU on the road.

It remains to be seen if Isaiah Thomas will return for Sacramento. He's been having a huge season for the team but has been dealing with a quad injury. Pau Gasol just returned to action for the Lakers last night.

NBA Pick: Kings -7 and over 218

[gameodds]5/260799/?r3=43-19-349/dec&r-1=43-19-349/us[/gameodds]

Golden State Warriors vs. San Antonio Spurs
Covered by Jeff Grant
The wins just keep coming up for the Spurs. They've now won 18 straight, with their latest perhaps their most impressive, coming in dominant fashion in Indiana over the Pacers. San Antonio has been equally as good on the road as they've been at home, putting up a 29-8 SU record on each front. 

There's a chance the streak could come to an end tonight against a Warriors team that just got a much-needed win in Dallas last night. The NBA odds favor San Antonio, but can Golden State end the fun?

NBA Pick: Spurs -10
