Warriors at Bulls - 8:05 PM EST

Golden State: 35-22 SU, 27-27-3 ATS
Chicago: 30-26 SU, 28-28 ATS

The Warriors continue their six-game road swing on Wednesday, as Golden State looks for its fifth consecutive victory. Mark Jackson's club knocked off the Pistons on Monday as 3 ½-point favorites, 104-96 to remain undefeated since the All-Star break, while limiting each of their last four opponents to below 99 points. The Warriors overcame an early 16-point deficit the last time they faced the Bulls back on February 6 to rally for a 102-87 home triumph as six-point favorites.

The Bulls have won nine of their last 10 home matchups with Golden State, while holding the Warriors to 91 points or below eight times. Chicago is riding a four-game SU/ATS winning streak when playing without rest, as the Bulls are coming off Tuesday's victory at Atlanta. The Bulls have won three in a row at the United Center, with all three victories coming by double-digits, but Chicago has dropped each of its last two games in the role of a home underdog.

Suns at Jazz - 9:05 PM EST

Phoenix: 33-23 SU, 36-19-1 ATS
Utah: 20-36 SU, 25-28-3 ATS

The Suns and Jazz meet for the final time in the regular season as Utah goes for the series split. Following a pair of victories by Phoenix in November, the Jazz stunned the Suns right after Thanksgiving in the Valley, 112-104 to cash outright as 8 ½-point underdogs. Utah snapped a three-game skid in Monday's blowout of Boston, but the Jazz has lost and failed to cover in three of their last four opportunities as a home underdog.

Phoenix will be playing on no rest following Tuesday's home defeat to Minnesota, as Wednesday's game is the lone road venture for the Suns in a nine-game span. Jeff Hornacek's team has fared well on the second of a back-to-back, posting a 7-2 SU/ATS record since losing at home to Utah in late November. In the role of a road favorite, the Suns have shined with a 4-1 SU/ATS record, while scoring at least 112 points in all four wins in this situation.

Nets at Blazers - 10:05 PM EST

Brooklyn: 26-28 SU, 27-27 ATS
Portland: 39-18 SU, 31-26 ATS

The Blazers continue to play without All-Star forward LaMarcus Aldridge, who is suffering from a groin injury. Portland owns a 2-1 SU and 1-2 ATS record with Aldridge out, as the Blazers go for the season sweep of the Nets. The previous matchup between these two teams came back in November at the Barclays Center, as Portland cruised past Brooklyn, 108-98, as the Blazers played with no rest. Terry Stotts' club is in that rest situation again following Tuesday's win at Denver, as Portland is just 1-3 SU and 2-2 ATS the last four games on the second of a back-to-back after beginning the season 9-2 SU and 8-3 ATS the first 11 opportunities in this scenario.

The Nets look to capitalize off Sunday's road favorite triumph over the Lakers, as Brooklyn has now alternated wins and losses in each of its last five trips to the court. Jason Kidd's team has lost each of their past three games as an away underdog, while scoring 96 points or fewer in eight of their previous nine opportunities in the road 'dog role. The Nets have taken care of business against unrested clubs since December, posting a 6-1 SU/ATS record when facing teams on the second of a back-to-back.

Rockets at Clippers - 10:35 PM EST

Houston: 39-18 SU, 30-25-2 ATS
Los Angeles: 39-20 SU, 33-26 ATS

Both teams are on the verge of 40 victories, as the Rockets wrap up a five-game West Coast swing. Houston heads to Southern California after Tuesday's blowout of Sacramento, as the Rockets have won nine of their past 10 games. Kevin McHale's team is listed as a road underdog for the first time since a January 29 victory at Dallas, a game played without top scorer James Harden. Houston's offense continues to scorch opponents by eclipsing the 101-point mark in eight of the last nine games, but that has resulted in only five 'overs.'

The Clippers return home following consecutive victories at Oklahoma City and New Orleans, as Los Angeles has now drilled the 'over' in eight of the past nine games. Los Angeles has given up at least 105 points in eight of the last nine, while allowing at least 113 points in each of its past two home contests against Portland and San Antonio. This season, the Clips have beaten the Rockets twice, with both meetings coming back in November. The last time Houston invaded Staples Center on November 4, the Rockets gave up a whooping 137 points, the second-most scored in regulation by a team this season.
