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

San Antonio Spurs at Philadelphia 76ers (-3, 182)

The Philadelphia 76ers are after their league-leading 14th home victory Wednesday night.

The 76ers have won six of their last seven games, covering the number five times, including a 95-90 win over the Los Angeles Lakers as 4.5-point favorites on Monday.

Super sixth man Lou Williams had a huge role in that win again with 14 of his 24 points in the fourth quarter. Williams leads the team with 15.5 points per game.

"From the start of my basketball career, and for as long as I could remember, I've always played well in the fourth quarter," Williams told reporters. "I know that's the most important time of a basketball game."

Williams and the Sixers will have to be awfully good in the fourth to get by the surging Spurs. San Antonio has won five straight outright and six in a row against the number.

This one might go down to the final buzzer.

Pick: Spurs


Detroit Pistons at New Jersey Nets (-4, 185.5)

When these two teams got together last week, New Jersey came away with a 99-96 win over Detroit. The Pistons may be ready to get their revenge Wednesday.

Detroit comes into this one having won consecutive games for the first time in a month and has covered the number in three straight.

Second-year center Greg Monroe averaged 21 points and 13.5 rebounds in Detroit’s last two games and has seven double-doubles in his last eight overall.

"He wants to be a really special player, yet the thing that's amazing is unbelievable upside and growth," coach Lawrence Frank told the Pistons' official website. "He literally is just scratching it. There's so much more to come."

New Jersey has lost three in a row and the Pistons are playing with a lot of confidence right now.

Pick: Pistons

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Edmonton Oilers at Detroit Red Wings (-225, 5.5)

The Detroit Red Wings will be without starting goaltender Jimmy Howard for at least a week or two as he recovers from a broken finger, leaving Ty Conklin and Joey MacDonald to man the net.

Conklin was scorched by the Oilers on Saturday, giving up three goals on nine shots before MacDonald came on in relief. MacDonald got the start Monday and made 20 saves in a 3-1 loss to Phoenix.

"It was a pretty even game, really," coach Mike Babcock told reporters. "I thought we got better as the game wore on, but didn't have enough to win. In our own zone, we're normally more efficient than we were today. We had too many turnovers."

The Wings head home to protect a 17-game winning streak at Joe Louis Arena, but they can’t afford those turnovers without Howard between the pipes to clean up the mess.

The way Edmonton is scoring right now, you have to like the over.

Pick: Over


Carolina Hurricanes at Anaheim Ducks (-160, 5.5)

If nothing else, Anaheim Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau has his team believing – which is a big step considering how bad this team was at the first of the season.

They still have a lot of ground to make up, but their best players are starting to pick it up and the whole lineup is working much better defensively.

The Ducks have allowed just 29 goals while going 10-2-2 to get back in the playoff conversation

"(Boudreau) just kind of tweaked our system a little bit, and we just kind of simplified things and we're not trying to do too much out there," defenseman Sheldon Brookbank told reporters.

Anaheim will need to stick to that system against Carolina, which has allowed just one goal in its last two games – wins over Boston and Los Angeles.

Pick: Under
