NBA Betting Top Five ATS Showdown – Orlando Magic at Detroit Pistons
With the jaw-dropping success of the Boston Celtics’ newly formed ‘Big Three’ this season, it seems as though the Detroit Pistons, (39-13 SU, 30-21-1 ATS, 23-28-1 O/U) may be getting shortchanged a bit in national recognition department, particularly seeing as how the Pistons have won ten consecutive games in the Top Sportsbooks.com Sportsbook going into this past weekend’s annual all-star break.
The Orlando Magic, (33-21 SU, 33-20-1 ATS, 27-25-2 O/U), on the other hand, have gotten plenty of national attention for their fast first-half start and high-flying theatrics of power forward Dwight Howard, the 2008 all-star slam dunk contest winner.
When it comes to style versus substance though, it is the Pistons who are at the head of the class, having beaten the Magic seven consecutive times at home, including a solid 101-93 victory on Jan. 25.
Now, the veteran Pistons are just looking to keep their flow going despite being interrupted by the all-star break.
“We’ve got a really good rhythm going right now,” shooting guard Richard Hamilton said.
Despite Detroit’s spectacular straight up success in its last ten games, the Pistons have gone a mediocre 5-5 against the spread in their last ten games. However, the Magic have had even bigger problems covering the spread recently going an unspectacular 4-5-1 against the spread in their last ten games.
Here is a look at tonight’s key trends, followed by my analysis and NBA Betting Free Picks.
The Magic are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Tuesday games.
The Magic are 12-4-1 ATS in their last 17 games as a road underdog.
The Pistons are 7-1-1 ATS in their last 9 games vs. a team with a winning S.U. record.
The Over is 5-0-1 in Magic last 6 games following a S.U. win.
The Over is 7-0 in Pistons last 7 vs. NBA Southeast.
The Over is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings.
The Over is 10-1 in the last 11 meetings in Detroit.
Analysis: While I like the Pistons to win this game and continue their winning ways, I think the spread may be just a bit too high for them to cover tonight. Take the Magic to cover as 7½ point underdogs.
