It's Wednesday again, which means a full NBA slate awaits us. Here's our basketball odds breakdown alongside all of our favorite picks.

LA Clippers vs. Charlotte Bobcats

Covered by Jason Lake

The Bobcats kicked off life without Kemba Walker in style, beating the in-form Raptors. Tonight though they're again underdogs against Blake Griffin and the Clippers, despite being at home.

Jason is thinking we'll see a relatively high pace in this matchup and is therefore taking a chance on the OVER as one of his free picks.

NBA Pick: OVER 200


Chicago Bulls vs. Cleveland Cavaliers

Covered by Jason Lake

The Bulls, at 8-2 SU over their last 10 games, have crept up into the sixth spot in the Eastern Conference standings. Can they keep it going against the Cavaliers?

Luol Deng faces off against his former team and will be hoping to make a difference tonight, but in the end Jason is taking Chicago to cover the short number as underdogs.

NBA Pick: Bulls +2.5


Boston Celtics vs. Washington Wizards

Covered by Matthew Jordan

The Celtics made life difficult on the Heat last night and now have to contend with John Wall and the Wizards with no days of rest.

Obviously the NBA odds show Washington as a sizable favorite, but which way does Matthew think this one goes? He believes the Wizards will steam-roll through a tired Boston team, leading to a cover.

NBA Pick: Wizards -9


Philadelphia 76ers vs. New York Knicks

Covered by Doug Upstone

It continues to be a struggle for the Knicks, who have lost four straight games ahead of tonight's tipoff. That being said, they're favored by eight points for tonight's home tilt against the 76ers.

The 76ers are very clearly building for the future, but this is a game they could win, given how New York has been playing as of late. Nonetheless, Doug sees the Knicks playing a rare complete game and is picking them to win by at least nine points.

NBA Pick: Knicks -8


Oklahoma City Thunder vs. San Antonio Spurs

Covered by David Lawrence

Kevin Durant has been absolutely on fire lately and is quickly solidifying himself as the MVP. He's kept Oklahoma City afloat with Russell Westbrook out of action and will try to carry the load again tonight.

David just doesn't think the Thunder will be able to sustain it tonight against the more rested Spurs. He's backing San Antonio to win and cover at home.

NBA Pick: Spurs -6


Indiana Pacers vs. Phoenix Suns

Covered by Jeff Grant

With the best record in the NBA, the Pacers have certainly proven they've learned a lot from last year's playoff run. They will take on a feisty Suns team tonight in what should be a highly competitive game.

With his NBA picks, Jeff has opted to go with the UNDER, as he thinks defense will rule the day. Considering Indiana is allowing just 88.3 points per game on the season, you can see why.

NBA Pick: UNDER 196.5


Atlanta Hawks vs. Orlando Magic

Covered by Jeff Grant

Will the Hawks keep spirits high after their impressive home win over the defending champion Heat? They will enter as 5.5-point favorites on the road in Orlando this evening.

The Magic were in action last night, losing by double digits in Brooklyn, but Jeff sees them making a game of it tonight and in turn covering the spread.

NBA Pick: Magic +5
