TOM STRYKER’S FREE NBA BASKETBALL SELECTION TUESDAY, MARCH 26TH
#572 DENVER (-) over Detroit at 9:05 PM EST
Off that crushing 36-point loss at Indiana and with a pair of road games at Houston and Oklahoma City on deck, Denver will make sure it grabs the win and cover when Detroit gets to town. The Pistons are running in the fifth game of a five-game road trip and the thin air in the Rocky Mountains will give them all kinds of trouble in this battle.
If the brutal loss to the Pacers won’t get the Nuggets motivated, then the memory of their 129-103 road loss to the Pistons back on February 4th will be more than enough to do the trick. Thankfully, at home, Denver holds a reliable 76-24 SU and 57-41-2 ATS record in its last 100 games including 18-2 SU and 15-5 ATS in this set arriving off a blowout loss of 10 points or more. Also, at home fighting with same season revenge, the Nuggets carry an elite 27-11 SU and 24-14 ATS mark including a sensational 18-1 SU and 16-3 ATS if they were on the road in their last game.
This isn’t the best spot for Detroit either. On the road facing an opponent that carries a team won/loss percentage of .501 or better, the Pistons own a weak 24-78 SU and 38-61-2 ATS provided their foe arrives off a blowout loss of 10 points or more. In this role facing an opponent that played on the road last, Detroit falls to a stiff 14-58 SU and 23-47-1 ATS including 6-45 SU and 14-36-1 ATS if the Pistons are priced as an underdog of +4 or more.
With only a half-game separating the Nuggets and Warriors for the top spot in the West, head coach Michael Malone’s boys will do what they do best and that’s win and cover a home game. (30-6 SU and 23-13 ATS at the Pepsi Center this year!) Take Denver. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
