NBA Bet of The Day – 12th Feb
Ok, Ok so yesterdays parlay pick of Celtics and LA Clippers DID NOT GO to plan, but it’s time to get back on the horse and lead it to water….. or at least an against the spread winner!!
WED, FEB 12TH – 7:00PM ET:
DETROIT PISTONS @ ORLANDO MAGIC BEST BETS:
- Against the Spread: Orlando -7.5 @ -110
- Over/Under : Under 206 @ -110
Against the Spread: Take Orlando -7.5 @ -110
The Pistons have lost five in a row and may just have hit rock bottom with back to back losses at home to New York and Charlotte. They only scored 76 points against the Hornets, who are no world beaters defensively. Outside of Reggie Jackson you might not be able to name a starter for Detroit, but it looks like Derrick Rose might be back for this one. That gives them a little more punch and might keep them in the game with a chance….. I don’t hold out too much hope, however.
On the other hand, Orlando found their offense in the last game, scoring 135 points, albeit against Atlanta. It did net them a win and a cover though. Now that the Pistons do not have Andre Drummond, this game is a great matchup for Nikola Vucevic. He is having a solid season and having a go-to option for scoring might be all they need right now. Detroit are a mess so for us Orlando at home against the spread in THE BET OF THE DAY!!
Over Under Pick: Take Under 206 @ -110
Even though they shot the lights out in their last game that is not normal for Orlando. Plus in this one even if they do score a bunch of points, I am not sure Detroit can hold up their end of the bargain and put the ball through the hoop enough to get an over. Take the under in this one.
