Detroit Pistons vs Special Bet
Detroit Pistons - New York Knicks
This New York team might look awful on paper without their superstar Kristaps Porzingis, out for injury, yet they have a guile, hard-nodes new coach in David Fizzdale that seems to start putting the pieces together. That's why, ending a 1-8 streak they have put up a surprising series of 3 very good wins over the Celtics, the Pelicans and the Grizzlies. Pretty impressive even for a good team and even more for a bad one.
Their luck might very easy end today, when they visit a Pistons team which looks reborn after Dwane Casey took control of the basketball operations in Detroit. Detroit doesn't look like a team to lose at bad opponents when playing at home and before a damn tough schedule against Golden State, OKC, Milwaukee, Philadelphia, New Orleans, Philly again, Charlotte, Boston, Milwaukee again, Minnesota and Charlotte again ... they have two home games agains New York and Chicago which they should put under their belts.
While I expect the Pistons to win tonight straight up and ATS and I'm betting on that at a loocal bookie which accepts combos with winning team and player performances, I will suggest for you the most valuable bet I see here: Blake Griffin to go over his projected total in points scored.
In the past 10 Knicks games the opponent power forwards thrived and went over in 9 occasions. I find it very likely for the Detroit's leading scorer to take advantage of the opponent's weakness on his position and to put up a big number tonight.
Let's go green!
