The NBA season is in full swing, and there are plenty of betting opportunities. ESPN has a double-header Wednesday with the Golden State Warriors visiting the Indiana Pacers in the opener and the red-hot Utah Jazz hosting the Los Angeles Lakers in the nightcap. Our analysts -- Doug Kezirian (7-1), Joe Fortenbaugh (4-0), Andre Snellings (3-2) and Travis Fulghum (0-0) -- are here to give their best bets from Wednesday's lineup of games.

Wednesday's games

Golden State Warriors at Indiana Pacers (-2, 228.5), 7:30 p.m. ET (on ESPN)

Snellings: The Warriors and Pacers enter this game with nearly identical records and scoring margins, but their level of play has diverged of late. The Pacers have won four of their last 11 with a -0.6 average scoring margin and have postponed their last two games due to COVID-19 protocols. Meanwhile, the Warriors have won six of their last 11,, including a strong road win against the Knicks on Tuesday night, and have a +7.0 average scoring margin over that stretch.
