Tuesday NBA Odds & Picks
Pacers vs. Wizards
7:30 p.m. ET
It's been a rough start for the Pacers, who come in to this game at 1-4 with their lone win coming against the Pistons a week ago.
For the Wizards, you just about couldn't have asked for a better start, as they have picked up three wins in four games and are looking like a contender for a playoff position.
The sharps aren't too confident that the Wizards will run off to a big game in this one, however, as they're all over the Pacers against the spread.
As of the time of writing, the best line available is Pacers +6 over at PointsBet for a -115 price. Many books have already dropped this down to a flat 5.
PRO Pick: Pacers +6
Knicks vs. Bucks
10 p.m. ET
These two teams have combined for a 6-1 start straight up, and sharp bettors are backing the underdog to keep things close here as well.
The Knicks recently grinded out an important win over the Hornets, getting past Charlotte in overtime, but they have an even bigger task here in the form of the Bucks.
Once again, PointsBet is offering the best line on the market, with the Knicks catching 6.5 points there but 6 and 5.5 in every other major sportsbook at the time of writing.
PRO Pick: Knicks +6.5
