(559) Detroit vs. San Antonio (560) 8:30 PM | Thu, Apr 22 2021
Sport: NBA | Star Rating: 10.0 Evaluation: Win (1000) - Final Score DET 91 at SA 106
-7.5 SA (-110) @ bet365

I'm playing on SAN ANTONIO. Both teams played and lost last night. For the Pistons, it was just another loss. They've got 41 of them, most in the Eastern Conference. For the Spurs, they can't afford another home loss. April has presented the Spurs with a challenging schedule, as they only got to play five home games for the entire month. This is the last of those five and they lost the previous four. They play their next four on the road. Then, they get a single home game - and that's against a tough opponent in the 76'ers - before going back on the road again. In other words, they badly need to take care of business, at home, tonight. The Spurs are a profitable 9-5 ATS off a double-digit loss. Even off last night's loss, they're still 14-8 ATS against teams from the East. They beat the Pistons by 10, at Detroit, last month. When the teams last played here, the Spurs won by 27. I'm expecting another double-digit win tonight. 


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.
We are constantly evaluating online sportsbooks and line feeds to ensure accuracy with our Expert picks. We typically have between 5-10 legal and reputable sportsbooks for our handicappers to select lines from.
