On Wednesday, there are a handful of games on the basketball television schedule that we have circled that should be good ones. Check out our NBA picks for Wednesday!
NBA Matchup: New Jersey Nets @ Philadelphia 76ers
Date: Wednesday, January 25th, 7:05 ET
Location: Wells Fargo Center, Philadelphia, PA
NBA Betting Odds: Philadelphia -11.5
NBA TV Schedule: Comcast Sports
The 76ers have really been slaughtering the teams that they are supposed to slaughter of late, but we have a real issue with this spread. The Nets were 13.5 point underdogs against the Chicago Bulls on the road two days ago in the second half of a back to back in two different cities. Now, they are getting 11.5 with a day of rest against the Sixers? You can’t possibly tell us that Philly is only two points worse than Chicago is, especially with all of the factors being taken into consideration of the extra off day. Philly was also only -13 against Washington at home two days ago. Again, no way that the Nets are only two points better than the worst team in the NBA.
NBA Pick: New Jersey +11.5
NBA Matchup: Indiana Pacers @ Chicago Bulls
Date: Wednesday, January 25th, 8:00 ET
Location: United Center, Chicago, IL
NBA Betting Odds: Chicago -9
NBA TV Schedule: Comcast Sports, NBA TV
It’s going to be an interesting fight for the Pacers on Wednesday night. If they can somehow find a way to win this game and prove that they can stick around against one of the best teams in the league, they will really be considered legitimate contenders this year. Chicago can definitely be had. Luol Deng is out, Taj Gibson is out, and who knows just how healthy Derrick Rose really is. If the Pacers are going to get the Bulls at any point this season, this is probably the time. Don’t be shocked if this turns out to be a tremendous game between two great teams.
NBA Pick: Indiana +9
