We split a pair of NBA Picks on Monday night, but we are still 5-1 in our last six NBA Picks! I have found two more on this short slate of games tonight, so follow along as we try once again to beat the sportsbooks with their own NBA Odds!

Cavs vs. Pistons
The Pistons have looked a lot better recently, and they look poised to make a run at the Eastern Conference playoffs. They are only a game out of 8th place behind Brooklyn, but they have a tough one tonight against one the league’s championship favorites.  The NBA odds have the Pistons as +6 ½ home underdogs in this one, with a total of 205 ½. While I am tempted to continue betting totals like we have since late last week, the spread in this one seems to valuable for the Pistons.

With their size and the addition of Reggie Jackson, the Pistons are a tough team to beat. They play defense good enough, and with Jackson now making life miserable for Kyrie Irving in this one, it will be interesting to see if the Pistons can keep it close. I think they can.

Detroit has won three of their last four games ATS, and since the day after Christmas they are 19-9 ATS. This is incredible for such a young team, and now with Jackson, the Pistons will be even more undervalued. Detroit is 7-2 ATS in their last nine games as underdogs between +5 and +10 ½, and they are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 home games, and 4-1 ATS in their last five as home dogs. The Cavs on the other hand are only 8-10 ATS this season when playing as a road favorite, and I see the Pistons using their size and athleticism to keep this one within striking distance.

NBA Pick: Pistons +6 ½ at 5Dimes

Raptors vs. Mavs
This one is the late game this evening, and it holds as much or even more value than the play above. The Raptors come into this game as +4 NBA odds underdogs, with a total of 205 ½ points. As tempted as I am to fade the Raptors here and go with a seemingly very undervalued spread of -4 with the Mavs, the total of 205 looks like an even better wager tonight.

The Raptors are 11-9 cashing the over against the West this season, and that’s where I’m going tonight on this short slate of NBA Odds. With the Raptors coming off the back to back as well, it makes them just as easy to either fade, or go with the over here. The Raptors have cashed the over at 19-7 in their last 26 games playing on no rest, and the over is 4-0 when the Raptors starters all play at least 160 minutes in the previous day’s game.

While the Mavs have been struggling some to go over the total recently, a tired Raptors team playing in Dallas should jumpstart this offense. These two teams have already played once this season and the final score ended up at 106-102, just enough to cash the over here with your NBA picks.

NBA Pick: OVER 205 ½ at The Greek
