We're almost at Holiday time! We hope everybody has a safe and happy Thanksgiving! Before we get to the turkey and football on Thursday, there's several really good basketball games and betting options on Wednesday. There's 14 NBA games and several interesting college basketball games including a plethora of tournament matchups.
Let's get it started!
Pittsburgh (4-0) vs. #4 Michigan (3-0)
Michigan (3-0) beat Slippery Rock 100-62 in its opener before defeating IUPUI 91-54 and Cleveland State 77-47 last week to advance to play at MSG. Michigan's NCAA-best 53.1 percent shooting from 3-point range fuels its high-powered offense. The Wolverines' 89.3 points per game also ranks among the best in the nation, with preseason All-American Trey Burke and fellow guard Tim Hardaway Jr. averaging 18.3 and 17.3 points, respectively. Pittsburgh recorded the largest comeback from a halftime deficit in school history in a 72-62 overtime win over Oakland on Saturday. The Panthers trailed by 14 after 20 minutes and as many as 18 in the second half, needing a 7-0 run in the final minute to force overtime. J.J. Moore, averaging 13.3 points, scored a team-high 16 in 25 minutes off the bench. Pittsburgh is 9-4 ATS L13 vs. Big 10. College Hoops Line: Pittsburgh is a 1/5-point favorite. Total: 123.5.
LA Clippers (8-2) at Oklahoma City (8-3)
This should be an outstanding game. The Clippers are coming off a 92-87 win over San Antonio on Monday getting 4.5, while Oklahoma City is coming off a 119-109 win over Golden State on Sunday. The Clippers have the third-highest scoring team in the NBA, so they don't mind getting out and running against the Thunder, who are 2nd in the NBA in scoring. For the Clippers, the addition of Jamal Crawford has really helped their bench. He leads the team averaging 19.7ppg, while Chris Paul adds 16.3ppg and 10apg as one of the top point guards in the game. Kevin Durant leads the way for the Thunder. Oklahoma City is 9-4 ATS L13 home games. NBA Lines: Oklahoma City is a 4.5-point favorite. Total: 199.5.
San Antonio (8-3) at Boston (6-5)
Two old teams get together on a Wednesday night. The Spurs begin a six-game road trip after falling at home to the Clippers on Monday, 92-87. Chris Paul hit a short jumper with 24.7 seconds left for the winner. They also lost guard Stephen Jackson to a non-displaced fracture to his right pinkie finger and is expected to miss four to six weeks. Jackson, averaging 7.7 points and 4.3 rebounds, was starting his second game with fellow forward Kawhi Leonard already sidelined. Boston (6-4) fell 103-83 on the road to 2-9 Detroit on Sunday, its fourth game in five nights and seventh in 10 days. The weary Celtics went 4 of 17 from 3-point range and missed 12 of their first 16 shots in the second quarter after leading 25-23 after the first period. San Antonio is 13-3-2 ATS last 18 vs. Eastern Conference. Hoops Odds: San Antonio is a 1.5-point favorite. Total: 194.5.
NY Knicks (8-1) at Dallas Mavericks (6-6)

The Knicks already own one win over the Mavericks this month, 104-94 at Madison Square Garden on Nov. 9. Kidd had six points, three assists and three steals in that game. Carmelo Anthony's season-high 31 points, seven rebounds and two blocks were instrumental in New York's win against the Mavs earlier this month.

Lakers are 5-1 ATS L6 home games. Basketball lines: Knicks are a 2.5-point favorites. Total: 195.5.
