|Over 211.5 (-110) @ williamhill|
I'm playing on Clev/Detroit OVER the total. These are two bad teams, both dealing with injuries. Both have seen their recent games stay below the total, too. As a result, we're getting a low O/U line to work with, the lowest on the Monday board. I believe that it'll prove to be too low. Keep in mind that neither team will be making the playoffs. When playing playoff teams, there's reason to play defense. But now that they're matched up against an opponent which is also playing out the string, there's little reason to do so. The last meeting had an O/U line of 222.5 and finished with 229 combined points. The last meeting here at Detroit had an O/U line of 214.5 and finished with 247 points. The last time that the Pistons were off three straight 'unders,' their next game finished with 228, comfortably above the total. Look for this one to also prove higher-scoring than many will be expecting, the OVER improving to 12-6 the past 18 times that Detroit had seen its previous three games fall below the number.
