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 York Knicks @ Milwaukee Bucks
Date: Wednesday, April 11th, 8:00 ET
Location: Bradley Center, Milwaukee, WI
NBA Betting Odds: Milwaukee -4
NBA TV Schedule: ESPN
The Knicks know that they are going to be in a bad travel spot in this game. They are only going to be in Milwaukee for a handful of hours, and they are coming off of back to back brutally physical games with a relatively short bench against the Bulls. Now, they have to fight for their playoff lives, as they are just a game up on these Bucks with less than 10 games to play, and this is the type of game that really should be won by a team that wants to get into the playoffs. That being said, the lack of depth is really going to show on Wednesday night for New York. Eventually, Carmelo Anthony isn’t going to be able to do it all, and New York just doesn’t have the big men with Amare Stoudemire out of the fold to take advantage of the Bucks and their lack of size in the paint. That will brutally cost the Knicks on Wednesday night.
NBA Pick: Milwaukee -4
NBA Matchup: Golden State Warriors @ Portland Trail Blazers
Date: Wednesday, April 11th, 10:30 ET
Location: Rose Garden, Portland, OR
NBA Betting Odds: Portland -6
NBA TV Schedule: ESPN
Remember when we were backing the Blazers seemingly every single night here at the Rose Garden because of how well that they have played at home over the course of the last few seasons? Of course, that was before Brandon Roy was basically forced into retirement, before the team traded Gerald Wallace, before the team lost Nicolas Batum to injury, and before the team knew that LaMarcus Aldridge was playing hurt and needs some time off. Portland is clearly the better of these two teams, and it is the team that at least still has a shot of getting into the playoffs with a great run down the stretch. However, Golden State is playing very hard right now with its mixing and matching in the lineup, and Head Coach Mark Jackson might be able to lead his team to an upset in this one in Portland.
NBA Pick: Golden State +6
