Pick #1 – Los Angeles Clippers at Detroit Pistons
Picking up right where we left before the holiday we get an amazing 14 game slate tonight in the NBA and we set our eyes on the Los Angeles Clippers (14-2) versus the Detroit Pistons (7-9) which is game that will be showcasing one of the best teams in the league. Speaking of the best the smart bettors have already taken this opening NBA 198.5 over / under line up to a 200 point total giving us our first inclination that this bet is indeed head to an OVER outcome. Further investigating the key facts and stats we see that the total has gone OVER in 7 of LA Clippers's last 8 games and that the total has gone OVER in 5 of LA Clippers's last 5 games on the road so we are really relying on LA to push the pace here and force the Pistons to an uptempo game which they have been all year at will. Also of historical note is the fact that the total has gone OVER in 6 of Detroit's last 7 games when playing at home against the LA Clippers so something about when these teams meet that set the sparks off. The recent offensive and defensive performance statistics o both these teams combined give us averages of 208.32 and 193.62 respectively so the offense is set to get us to our mark. The total OVER/UNDER record for the year for the Clippers on the road this year is 6-1 so pretty much the odds makers have been underestimating this spot all year and this should be no different. When it comes to pace of play and possessions per game both teams are low in the ranks but the Clippers have just been making teams play at another level lately while scoring in bunches so it should no problem hitting our OVER here. The public consensus for this game is 76% in favor of the OVER so like us a lot of people are seeing the same opening and value we are. The computer predicted outcome of this one is 206 so we have almost everything going in are favor as we pick up this 200 OVER play.
