Philadelphia vs. Detroit,
12/23/2019 19:00 EDT,
Score: 125 - 109
Point Spread: +5½/-105 Detroit
The Sixers' offensive flow was disrupted by zone defenses during a recent 3 game losing streak. They averaged 97 points while falling to Brooklyn, Miami and Dallas. Personally I have not liked the flow of the Sixers for a few seasons now, and despite of their talent , are to choppy of a team to garner my respect against the best teams in this league. I know Detroit is not a top tier team, but HC Casey is an astute enough student of the game, to know how to implement a defensive game plan that can slow the Sixers here , making the home team in my humble betting opinion a solid underdog in this spot play.
The Seventysixers are 11-34-1 ATS L/46 as a favorite with rest off a game as a favorite facing an opponent averaging more than 7 refereed turnovers per game.
NBATeams like the Pistons are 13-0 ATS L/13 s a home dog off a 10+ loss after rebounding less than 20% of their own misses.
NBARoad teams (PHILADELPHIA) - extremely tired team - when playing their 3rd game in 4 days, a good team (60% to 75%) playing a bad team (25% to 40%) are 21-51 ATS L/5 seasons for a 71% conversion rate for bettors.
