TOM STRYKER’S FREE NBA BASKETBALL SELECTION SATURDAY, MARCH 30TH
#536 DETROIT (-) over Portland at 7:05 PM EST
After losing three straight on the road, Detroit managed to pick up a win and cover at home over Orlando in its last game. With a road war at Indiana on deck, the Pistons will make sure they take care of business when Portland comes to town on Saturday night.
Finding motivation for this contest will be easy for Detroit. Back on March 23th, the Pistons (+5) traveled to Blazers Country and lost a hard-fought 117-112 decision. A quick peek at the Team Stryker Database shows that Detroit has played very well in the Motor City lately posting a golden 10-0 SU and 9-0-1 ATS record in its last 10 games. Also, when holding a team won/loss percentage of .501 or better and battling a Western Conference foe, the Pistons have posted a lucrative 21-10-2 ATS mark.
Off back-to-back 20-point road wins over Chicago and Atlanta, Portland will run out of gas here. According to the Team Stryker Database, when priced as an underdog or a favorite of -2 or less, the Trailblazers hold a weak 17-54 SU and 25-41-1 ATS record provided they take the court off a blowout win of 20 points or more. As a guest in this role, the Blazers fall to a miserable 11-50 SU and 20-37 ATS. In addition, as a guest in the second of a back-to-back checking in off a road war, Portland holds a disturbing 2-10 SU and 1-11 ATS record in its last 12 tries.
The Pistons, Nets and Heat are all battling for playoff positioning right now and it will be imperative that head coach Dwane Casey’s kids win this one to stay in the No. 6 slot. Take Detroit. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
