Houston Rockets Vs. Oklahoma City Thunder

The Game: Houston Rockets vs. Oklahoma City Thunder, 10 p.m. ET

Houston Rockets+10.5 (-112)+385O 235.5 (-110)
Oklahoma City Thunder-10.5 (-108)-500U 235.5 (-110)

Pick: Oklahoma City Thunder ATS -10.5

This game marks the second time in three days the Houston Rockets will be taking on the Oklahoma City Thunder, with the Thunder beating Houston at the Toyota Center by a score of 123-110 on Sunday.

Oklahoma City is riding a five-game winning streak ATS, and its also covered in 10 of its last 12 encounters with the Rockets when playing at home. Houston, meanwhile, has dropped seven in a row SU on the road and has covered the spread only twice in its last seven games.

The Rockets will obviously want to have a stronger showing just days after getting blown out by the same team, but the Thunder are near unstoppable at the Paycom Center and will pull off yet another double-digit victory.

New Orleans Pelicans Vs. New York Knicks

The Game: New Orleans Pelicans vs. New York Knicks, 7:30 p.m. ET

New Orleans Pelicans-2.5 (-110)-138O 218.5 (-110)
New York Knicks+2.5 (-110)+118U 218.5 (-110)

Pick: New Orleans Pelicans ML

It took every last bucket for the New York Knicks to hold off the feeble Detroit Pistons at Madison Square Garden on Monday, and that even required a controversial non-call to seal the deal. 

The New Orleans Pelicans are clearly more formidable than Detroit, although they have dropped two of three since returning from the All-Star break, including their most recent effort against the Chicago Bulls in a 114-106 defeat.

New York has a 5-5 record on the season when playing on the second night of a back-to-back slate, and squaring off against a motivated Pelicans squad looking to get back in the win column, the depleted Knicks may not have much left in the tank to handle the visitors. 

Golden State Warriors Vs. Washington Wizards

The Game: Golden State Warriors vs. Washington Wizards, 7 p.m. ET

Golden State Warriors-11 (-110)-550O 242.5 (-110)
Washington Wizards+11 (-110)+420U 242.5 (-110)

Pick: UNDER 242.5 Total Points

An OVER/UNDER of 242.5 is one of the higher total odds you'll see, and even for a pair of high-octane offenses like the Golden State Warriors and Washington Wizards (first in pace despite ranking 26th in offense), it's a number that's perhaps a bit too high. 

The total has gone UNDER in eight of Golden State's last 10 games, as well as 11 of Washington's last 16 games. The two sides did combine to drop 247 points on Dec. 22, mind you, but that's still barely greater than Tuesday's total.

Based on their recent histories in this department, an UNDER bet feels right here.
