<p><a href="" target="_blank" title="Shop Sixers-Pistons Odds Here"><strong>Philadelphia 76ers vs. Detroit Pistons 7:35 PM ET</strong></a><br /> Philadelphia has seen each of their previous four games go over the total. Those contests didn’t exactly surpass the number by a small margin, averaging a combined 232.5 points per game, and covered by a massive cumulative total of 92.0 points. The 76ers have shot a sizzling hot 50.2% during that four game stretch, and they’ve allowed 121 points or more in each of its last three outings. They’ve also converted on a stellar 40.7% of their three point attempts during its last five games. Philadelphia is 4-0 over the total in their last four when playing with no rest, and there was a combined average of 215.0 points scored per game.</p> <p>Detroit has been in a bit of an offensive slump of late, but most of those instances have occurred on the road. The Pistons have gone 15-6 (62.5%) over the total in its last 21 home games. As a matter of fact, they’re averaging a more than respectable 104.3 points scored per game at home this season. The Pistons are 4-1 over the total in their last five games when facing opponent playing with no rest, and those five outings averaged a combined 212.6 points scored per contest.</p> <p>These teams have met twice already this season, and each of those contests went over the total. Current <a href="" target="_blank" title="Live NBA Odds Board Here">NBA odds</a> at Pinnacle clearly provides the most favorable number pertaining to this wager.</p> <p>[/]{"component":"oddswidget", "eventId":2883309, "sportsbooksIds":[1096,93,19,92,238,169], "LineTypeId":3, "PeriodTypeId":1}[/]<br /> <strong>NBA Pick:</strong> Over 210<br /> <strong>Best Line Offered: </strong><a href=";book=Pinnacle" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Start wagering at Pinnacle">at Pinnacle</a></p> <p> </p> <p><a href="" target="_blank" title="Compare Betting Odds With Us"><strong>Charlotte Hornets vs. Cleveland Cavaliers 8:05 PM ET</strong></a><br /> Charlotte has allowed 98 points or less in seven of their last eight games. They’ve gone 7-3 under the total in their previous ten contests, and that includes 5-1 under during away games. The Hornets will be playing in their four consecutive game on the road today. That’s significant, since they’re 11-1 under the total this season following two straight road games. Those twelve contests averaged only a combined 190.8 points scored per game. In their two meetings with Cleveland this season, Charlotte held them to 97 and 95 points respectively.</p> <p>Due to the recent all star break, each NBA team has played a relatively small amount of games over the past two weeks. Cleveland has gone 10-2 under the total this season when playing six games or less during the previous fourteen days, and there was a combined average of just 188.5 points scored per contest. They’ve also gone 3-0 under the total in its last three outings, and Cleveland allowed 96 points or less in each of those games.</p> <p>Relative to the current total, I like this game to be a low scoring affair. One of my Wednesday <a href="" target="_blank" title="Free NBA Picks &amp; Previews">NBA picks</a> will be indicative of that notion.</p> <p>[/]{"component":"oddswidget", "eventId":2883306, "sportsbooksIds":[1096,93,19,92,238,169], "LineTypeId":3, "PeriodTypeId":1}[/]<br /> <strong>NBA Pick: </strong>Under 205.5 <br /> <strong>Best Line Offered: </strong><a href=";book=BetOnline" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Play this game at BetOnline">at BetOnline</a></p>
