Pick 'n' roll: Wednesday's best NBA bets
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Minnesota Timberwolves at Dallas Mavericks (-6, 184)

The Mavericks figured that if they had to be without Dirk Nowitzki for a while, it might as well be sooner rather than later.

He has sat out the two games to work on his conditioning and help is sore right knee heal. He is expect to sit out at least a couple more games and Dallas is surviving without him for now. The Mavs dropped the Hornets 83-81 as 3.5-point favorites in his first absence and then covered as 5-point favorites in a win over Phoenix.

Shawn Marion scored 29 points to lead Dallas to its latest win and is averaging 19.3 points over his last four games.

“Shawn was great,” Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle told reporters. “A lot of plays he made were very timely. ... We needed someone to step up.”

We like Dallas to keep its streak going.

Pick: Mavericks


New Orleans Hornets at Oklahoma City Thunder (-13, 183.5)

When you’ve lost eight straight games, it’s hard to stay optimistic.

“It’s extremely frustrating,” New Orleans guard Jarrett Jack told reporters after Monday’s 104-102 loss to San Antonio. “The good part is that we gave ourselves a chance. That’s all that you can really ask for in this league. It just comes down to making plays.”

The Hornets still aren’t making plays, but at least they’re keeping it close lately. Monday’s loss was the third straight game that they had covered the number as the improved to 8-9 against the spread on the year.

With the Thunder’s offense that produces better than 99 points per game, they usually have no problem covering fat pointspreads. But the better play here might be the under.

Each of the last six meetings between these two teams have checked in below the total.

Pick: Under

Detroit Red Wings at Montreal Canadiens (-155, 5.5)

Some of the names and faces have changed, but the Detroit Red Wings can be just as dominant as they were when they were winning Cups a decade ago.

Detroit will head into the All-Star break as the top team in the league and has won seven straight games heading into Wednesday’s date with the Canadiens, which is the last game on the schedule before the break.

The Wings are so difficult to beat because they have perfected a patient puck-control attack that doesn’t turn the puck over. In today’s NHL, that’s the recipe for long-term success.

“That’s the league now. They’re all like this, it’s 3-1 or 3-2 every night,” coach Mike Babcock told reporters after Monday’s win over St. Louis. “If the other team gets to three first, you’re probably not going to win, so you’ve got to play well without the puck and wait for your chances.”

That’s not exactly one of Montreal’s claims to fame.

The Canadiens have won just two of their last seven and aren’t taking advantage of power play opportunities, sitting 30th in the league converting only 12.2 percent of their odd-man chances.

“There’s still a light at the end there,” Montreal forward Lars Eller said after a 3-1 victory at Toronto. “There are more than 30 games to go and we still have a lot of faith in this locker room. We’ll play one game at a time and see what happens.”

We aren’t so optimistic about the Habs. They are eight points back of eighth spot in the East and will need a tremendous effort from Carey Price to even be in the playoff conversation down the stretch.

If you aren’t afraid of the price tag, take the Red Wings on the road. Otherwise, stick with the under.

Pick: Under
