Pistons-Magic Prediction 2-12-2020
I hate taking unders and I am pretty sure I have said that before. It’s so stupid. Why would I bet something that would make me get mad when the teams actually do well. I feel like a hater and a communist but I have no other choice tonight. My hands are tied.
I am going to keep this short and simple. I think Detroit is the worst team in the NBA. Look at their roster, it stinks. They do get Derrick Rose back tonight but he will be on a minutes limit and he could be rusty. Roster is just part of this though.
In the last 3 games, no team in the NBA is even close to Detroit in terms of least possessions per game. The closest team to their 92.3 possessions per game are the ultra slow Charlotte Hornets at 96.2. They are just walking the ball up the floor (especially in the first quarter) and taking all day to shoot the ball. Last game they scored 11 points in the first quarter. 11. I don’t think they will score that few tonight but they are always a candidate to stink up the place.
The Magic on the other hand seem to be playing faster than normal in the last three games at first glance but when you see who they played you see why. They played two teams in the top five in terms of possessions per game (Atlanta and Milwaukee) which is why they have had 104 possessions per game over their last three. Not one of those times have they combined with the other team to go over 54 points in the first quarter. They are another walk the ball up like they have all night type of team. I hate it but I do think the under for the first quarter is worth a shot.

Every straight bet I make is to win 1% of my bankroll
I bet this at 5Dimes and I highly recommend getting an account there. They have everything a degenerate needs to survive in this ever changing sports betting landscape. First half team totals in college hoops are a must and the fact that you can parlay them is pure chaos!
I love t shirts! Especially the nice, soft, fitted style that Next Level makes. Now throw a VK logo on one of those bad boys and we have something special. Most importantly, there is no way you can lose a bet wearing one of these! It’s science!
