Our NBA Free Pick is looking at a pair of also rans in the Eastern Conference that were supposed to make moves upward this season. Detroit and Milwuakee were both pegged for better things due to their young line ups with systems that stress success. The Bucks have gone backward from their playoff appearance last year. Detroit had to trade some of their players to get that infusion of energy into their lineup once again. Detroit is a two point underdog for their visit to Milwaukee on 2/27. Which way will HRWager urge their investors to speculate on for this 8:30 PM start.
NBA Free Pick : Tobias
Ship two former Bucks for another one has the Pistons winning their last two. Tobias Hunter has gotten over 18 points per game since becoming a Piston to Brandon Jennings and Ilyasova to Orlando. Now they are getting the front court production they need. Odd thing is that this might have tighten up the rotation too much. Pistons got less than ten points from their bench in a win at Cleveland. They have to go deeper or this team will fall off the cliff in a few weeks from over exertion in their defensive intensive efforts.
Lineup Change of Their Own
Bucks at 24-34 were probably far too gone when they put OJ Mayo and Miles Plumlee in the starting lineup. They had won four straight but looked sloppy in a lost to Boston last time out. 15 turnovers produced twenty fast break points for the Celtics. Now the turnovers will be near that level playing against Detroit but the Pistons are not the best at converting them into easy points. Both teams have a proclivity to score in the paint in a clash of similar styles.
Caveman basketball is seen as this is definitely a throwback to a bygone era. The spread is -2 but the total of 203 is the exploit here. Lots of fouls but the free throwing shooting by both team’s big men are not stellar. Look for complimentary styles to drive down the total in this one. The HRW NBA Free Pick for this one is the under 203. Good fortune with your sports investment and we will see you later on today here at the HRW.
