NBA betting on Friday includes an ESPN televised contest in Detroit as the Pistons host the Boston Celtics.
Basketball betting odds determine the Celtics as road favorites in this game. Let’s look at some of the NBA betting trends and numbers for the Celtics and Pistons.
NBA betting trends tell us that Boston has won eight of the last ten games against Detroit. The Celtics are 7-3 against the NBA odds in those games. At Detroit, the Celtics have won four of the last five games against the Pistons as NBA betting results demonstrate. The two teams have already met twice this season with Boston winning 98-80 at home and 88-76 in Detroit. Last year in the playoffs the Celtics took out the Pistons in six games.
The Celtics have ranked first or second on defense all season as NBA betting stats indicate. The Pistons have not played defense well enough against Boston and Detroit does not have the weapons to consistently challenge Boston, especially inside. Allen Iverson has led Detroit in scoring this season as NBA betting stats reflect and he will get some points but overall the Pistons have not been able to score against the tough Boston defense.
Boston has been just a .500 team on the road this season in NBA betting. Normally they are laying some numbers on the road though but in this case against the Pistons the NBA betting number will be reasonable. The Pistons have been horrible against the basketball betting pointspread at home this season so gamblers might be looking to the Celtics in this one.
Five of the last six games between the two teams have gone under the basketball betting total. Eight of the last ten games overall have gone under the NBA odds. At Detroit, the last five games have gone under the basketball betting number.
