There is one NBA pick tonight.
Boston Celtics -2.5 spread against Detroit Pistons for 3% of the bankroll.
The Boston Celtics appear to be clicking on all cylinders at the moment and come into this contest with the Detroit Pistons having won their last 8 straight and have done so by a convincing margin. Tonight, we are getting the Celtics at a discount because they are on the second game of a back-to-back, but we don't believe that necessarily matters. Last night, the Celtics had a rather easy blowout victory over the Atlanta Hawks, which allowed their starters to get some much-needed rest in the 4th quarter. While this is a quick turnaround, the extra rest afforded should make fatigue less of an issue for them tonight.
As for Detroit, they are struggling at the moment, having lost 6 straight, with their most recent being somewhat of a heart-breaking 1-point loss on the road against Charlotte. While they will certainly be motivated to end their recent skid, we don't believe they will be in form enough to top the surging Celtics. Detroit is not as deep a team as Boston, and we believe it will be the C's depth that ultimately gives them the decided advantage and leads to the win. There is a lot of value in getting Boston at these short odds and they should continue their hot streak with another win and cover in Detroit tonight.
