(549) Detroit vs. Philadelphia (550)
PICK: bet365 @ Under 216.5 (-110)
DATE: March 11, 2020 - 7:00 PM
STAR RATING: 10.0
EXPERT: Will Rogers
EVALUATION: Loss (-1100) - Final Total 230
The set-up: The situation and the numbers/trends both point to this one falling well below the posted number in my opinion. Philly is 2-0 in the season series so far and looking back finds the Pistons 0-5 the last five in this series. Both teams are hungry to break losing streaks here though and I think that's going to lead to a more defensive affair here. Detroit enters having lost four straight and Philly's gone just 1-3 in its last four.
The pick: NOte as well that Detroit has seen the total go under in seven of its last 11 road games as an underdog, while Philadelphia has seen the total dip under in eight of its last 11 after scoring 110 points or more in two straight games. Expect an all out war here, where every possession is contested and look for this total to stay well under once it's all said and done.
10* TOTAL COACH'S CORNER on the UNDER Pistons/76ers.
