NBA Betting – Pistons vs. Spurs

NBA Betting Trends – Rejuvenated Spurs Host Struggling Pistons

I told BetUS NBA Sports betting enthusiasts that the Detroit Pistons (10-6 SU, 8-8 ATS, 8-8 O/U) made a big mistake by trading point guard Chauncey Billups for veteran shooting guard Allen Iverson.
Now, just 6-6 since acquiring the enigmatic Iverson, the Pistons will host the San Antonio Spurs (9-7 SU, 8-8 ATS, 6-10 O/U) as they try to bounce back from a resounding 96-85 home loss to the Portland Trailblazers in the BetUS Sportsbook on Sunday.

The Pistons and first-year head coach Michael Curry may have even bigger problems with Iverson and small forward Tayshaun Prince apparently not happy about being given limited minutes in the loss to Portland.

Iverson has averaged less than 31 minutes since coming to Detroit, 10 minutes less per game than he’s averaged over his career.

“I’m sitting more right now than I ever have in my career, and my rhythm isn’t there,” said Iverson. “I’m missing shots that I normally knock down 110 percent of the time, and that’s all on me.”

Prince, who was benched for the fourth quarter and played less than 23 minutes Sunday wasn’t a happy camper following the game.

“He just wasn’t playing well,” Curry said of Prince, who had played at least 30 minutes in every other game.

“I thought I was playing pretty good, if you ask me,” said Prince, who scored 10 points for the second straight game.

“I don’t know what’s going on. Hopefully, (coaches) could have said something after the game and let us know what was going on. They didn’t do it, so I don’t know.”

The Pistons will take on a Spurs team that is coming off a convincing 103-84 road loss to Houston on Saturday but is starting to get healthy with starting guards Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker returning from injuries last Monday and Friday respectively.

All-star forward Tim Duncan has been in a funk recently, averaging just 15.5 points and 9.7 rebounds in the last six games on 42.5 percent shooting from the field.

The Pistons have won four of six meetings with the Spurs, including both last season.

Here is a look at tonight’s key betting trends, followed by my in-depth analysis and NBA Free Pick:

The Pistons are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 vs. NBA Southwest.
The Pistons are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games following a SU loss of more than 10 points.
The Spurs are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 2 days rest.
The Spurs are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 home games.
The Under is 7-0 in Pistons last 7 games following a S.U. loss.
The Under is 4-0 in Spurs last 4 vs. NBA Central.
The Under is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings.
The Pistons are 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings.
The Pistons are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in San Antonio.

NBA Odds

Detroit Pistons +4½ -110
San Antonio Spurs -4½ -110

Over 184 -110
Under 184 -110

Analysis: I like the Spurs to bounce back from their emphatic loss to Houston with a solid effort tonight that not only nets them a victory, but helps them pick up a big ATS win in the process. Take the Spurs to win their fifth game in their last six outings.
