We typically offer our picks for individual games each night here on Rookie Wire, but we’re launching a new series today that will feature our overall top 3 bets of the night across the league. We’ll be looking at bets on the point spread, over/under bets, and even player props and look especially enticing.

There are a total of 10 NBA games on the schedule for Wednesday night, which means there’s plenty of action on BetMGM. Here are our picks for the three locks of the night:

1. Rockets -7.5 at Thunder

The Rockets have been humming since the James Harden trade, and are on a six-game winning streak. They just blew out the Thunder by 30 on Monday. I have no reason to believe we’ll see anything different a few days later. John Wall is out, yes, but the Thunder will be without Shai Gilgeous-Alexander.

2. Suns -3.5 at Pelicans

Phoenix has already beat the Pelicans once this season by 25 points, and I can’t trust New Orleans’ below-average offense against a solid Suns team.

3. Celtics-Kings over 223.5

The Celtics and Kings both have top-10 offenses – but the Kings have the worst defense in the league. The Celtics score 120+ in this game and the over easily hits.
