Pick #1 – Detroit Pistons at Toronto Raptors
Well the NBA is finally back and its time to add some butter to the bread as we get on with the start of the season and see the Detroit Pistons take on the Toronto Raptors for there opening nights. The Detroit Pistons (0-0) and the Toronto Raptors (0-0) are both primed to come into this season gunning. Each franchise heads into tonight's matchup with some minor setbacks to the roster with Reggie Jackson being out probably being the biggest loss but most of the big stars are suiting up so the sparks should be flying as we get under way and both teams looked solid as far as preseason goes. The sharp money is showing us the path to success off the top as we have watched this opening 195 NBA total get blasted up to a 197 OVER and honestly with this one looks could go higher. The total total has gone OVER in 7 of Toronto's last 8 games when playing at home against Detroit so we are going to ride a bit of history here and grab some trending value. The offensive head to head averaged numbers over the last 10 for these two teams when they meet are 102.7 for the Pistons and 108.3 so there is a ton of historical scoring upside to these two squads battling. The over/under for this NBA spread total started off at 195 and has shot up to 197 so the money is letting us know once again that the OVER is looking like a very sharp play here. The public consensus for this game is at a very strong 74% towards the OVER so the notion of strength in numbers is with us on this one as well. The computer predicted outcome of this opener is 201 so we have to feel great about grabbing the OVER 197 here as both teams should be looking to explode tonight with points provided on both sides..
