We are getting closer to the last month or so of the season  and online sports betting weeks of the NBA regular season, the more urgency the top teams around the NBA will show. That is true in the Eastern Conference this week, with each of the top-three teams in action as they jockey for position atop the standings. Let’s Take a loom at the NBA Basketball Picks Thursday Night.

NBA Basketball Picks ThursdayMilwaukee Bucks @ Indiana Pacers
Thursday, 7:00 PM ET

The Pacers look to be top seed in the Eastern conference this year, but they are only 1.5 games up on the Miami Heat, with a lot of games left to play. The sports betting experts have noted that Indiana has had plenty of opportunities to pull away at the top of the conference and hasn’t, and consistency will certainly be the key down the stretch as they try to lock up top spot and the home advantage for a potential Eastern Conference final showdown against the two-time defending champions. The Pacers have won 26 of 29 home games so far this season, and getting that extra home game will be crucial if they are finally going to get past Miami. A visit from the last place Bucks shouldn’t be a problem for Indiana, which will continue to attack as they prepare for the stretch run. NBA Basketball Picks Thursday: Indiana Pacers – 15

Washington Wizards @ Toronto Raptors
Thursday, 7:00 PM ET

Toronto has been one of the surprise teams in the NBA this season, and its online betting match up against the Wizards on Thursday offers another glimpse in to a potential first round playoff series. The Raptors are currently in the third spot in the East, with Washington just three games back in fifth. Both teams would love home advantage for a first round series, but the Wizards will have a tough time closing the gap against a Toronto team that has played well at home. Kyle Lowry matches up well against John Wall, and that battle will be key to the outcome of this contest as the Raptors look to neutralize Washington’s biggest threat and attack in transition. NBA Basketball Picks Thursday: Toronto Raptors – 4.5

New York Knicks @ Miami Heat
Thursday, 8:00 PM ET

The Heat should have no problem maintaining the pace with Indiana on Thursday night as they go up against a Knicks’ team that has dramatically fallen off. It wasn’t long ago that experts were talking about New York as one of the teams with the best chance at taking down Miami at the top of the East pyramid, but that hasn’t been the case at all as the Knicks sit 15 games below .500 and on the outside looking in. It certainly won’t get any easier on the road in Miami, where the Heat have won 21 of 25 games. Lebron James, Dwyane Wade, and company are also trying to catch that No. 1 spot in the East, and they should have no problem lighting up a New York team that has been awful even with Carmelo Anthony leading the way up front.NBA Basketball Picks Thursday Miami Heat – 10.
