Pick Details

(557) Detroit vs. Washington (558) 8:00 PM | Sat, Apr 17 2021
Sport: NBA | Star Rating: 10.0 Evaluation: Loss (-1120) - Final Total 221
Over 226 (-112) @ Fanduel

I'm playing on Detroit/Washington OVER the total. These teams both saw their games yesterday stay below the total. However, I'm expecting a high-scoring affair this evening. While the Pistons have seen the OVER go 7-5 when playing the second of b2b games, the OVER is also 9-4 when the Wizards played the second of b2b games. Going back further finds the OVER at 25-13 the past 38 times that Washington was in a b2b situation. While the Wizards last two games have finished below the total, that's been because of extremely high O/U lines, much higher than this one. Those games still finished with 232 and 234 combined points, respectively. Prior to that, the Wizards' previous two games produced 240 and 246. The last time that Detroit played the second of b2b games, the final combined score was 255, finishing above the number by roughly 40 points. Look for this one to also prove higher-scoring than many will be expecting. 


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.
