Hmm...Nobody huh? On the surface this looks like one ugly mutt of a game. Detroit has only posted a 5-13 mark in its last 18 halves yet is only gettin +1 from vegas. Any opinions out there?

Detroit has lost its last 6 games at home in the last 7 games they have faced seven road games. Detroit has 1-9 in the last 10 and in appearance not seen as could win this match at home. Minnesota is not a very dangerous team, they are 3-7 in the last 10 games, but the number and effectiveness in their favor against Detroit. Anyway taketh to Detroit, I think with the line +1 they can break that losing streak and win today at home. The over is my second choice. The two teams averaged 195 points below but the consensus and rose to 195.5 even though in their last clash between them scored 171 points.

Pick: Detroit +1 / 195.5 Over

It seems picks free has given reason to wager for and against both teams as well as the total. That would be called straddling the fence. But credit to you for showing your choices. I have to go with Minn. 1st H   pick'em They are 6-2 L8 1st H. They beat SA, covered IND, beat Hou, covered Mem, beat Sac, and beat Phx... ALL ON THE ROAD except SA.  Good Luck to all, and may the last shot be in your favor.

I believe the Pistons have better guards with Stuckey, Knight, and Calderon, but there is a greater dispiraty between the frontlines of these 2 teams.

Also Twolves just got completely punked on the boards at home by the Bulls (without Noah) last time out, I think they will be motivated to do the same number to a soft Pistons front line tonight.

Twolves...BOL
