Pick
Over 212.5 (-110) @ bet365

This is a 10* TOTAL OF THE WEEK on the OVER Cavaliers/Pistons.

Neither team will be in the playoffs. Both teams just need a win here, as Cleveland has lost four of its last five, while Detroit has lost four of its last five as well.

Overall the Cavs are averaging 103.8 PPG, while allowing 111.1. The Pistons are averaging 107.6, while allowing 111.4.

Neither team can score, but neither can defend either.

In this case, don't expect either of these bottom feeders to buckle down on the defensive end, instead expect a wide-open affair between these two terrible defensive teams.

Note as well that Cleveland has seen the total go OVER the number in eight of is last 12 after playing to three or more straight UNDERS in a row, while Detroit has seen the total soar OVER in six of its last eight in trying to revenge a loss vs. an opponent in which it conceded 120 or more points in.

This number is a little low, the play is the OVER.

Good luck, NP

FAQs

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
