Pick #1 – Charlotte Hornets at Detroit Pistons
A must win game for both teams tonight so we can be sure the action is going to be heated and intense Each team also comes into this game red hot as of late and playing with a purpose as the Charlotte Hornets sport a recent 8-2 stretch over 1 games while the Detroit Pistons showcase and equal impressive 7-3 record over the same span. The Charlotte Hornets (41-30) and Detroit Pistons (38-34) are two teams trying to hold onto the final playoff spots in the east so we can expect the utmost focus and intensity from both teams tonight. While both east coast powerhouses need to take home the win tonight this game is more important to home team Detroit which should play into our picks favor as we dive into some of the finer details. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist of the Charlotte Hornets is the only reported injury from either side so we can best be assured the offenses will be firing on all cylinders tonight for these scoring minded teams. Holding a recent 6-3-1 over/under total outcome over the last 10 games there is no denying that when these two teams meet the buckets are put up with vengeance. This hot stretch alone has seen the total go OVER in 6 of Detroit's last 7 games at home. Detroit also accounts for an overall 21-13-1 over/under standing at home so its pretty obvious that when the Pistons hit the home court this year there ready to simple put the rock in the hole for the home crowd. Offensive and defensive numbers over the past 10 games for these two teams add up to a blazing 216.2 and 210.3 so we are getting some monster starting statistics in are favor. The total over/under spread for this NBA contest opened at 206.5 and has stuck around that spot for the entire day so far so the money appears a bit undecided but the trends scream grab up the over in this one. This should be a tight hard fought battle with the Hornets taking a +2.5 line against a super talented Pistons team at home. As an added bonus to all of the above this bet has had the highest consensus on the board all day and currently holds an astonishing 95% favoritism towards the OVER. We just can not see this game going anywhere but the OVER at 206 so lets take this one home.
