4* Magic/Pistons NBA Over/Under Total Annihilator: UNDER 196.5
While this may not seem like a matchup where you would expect to see both teams playing with a lot of energy defensively, I believe the total has been set way too high. The Magic are coming off a couple of very-high scoring games at home against the Bobcats and Mavericks, but you can't overlook the fact that this team held the Pistons to just 74 points earlier this season. Detroit has been playing a lot better of late, and a lot of that success has come on the defensive side of the ball. The Pistons are only giving up 93.0 ppg at home. The key here is that Orlando has already beat Detroit twice this season, which should ensure us that the Pistons will show up defensively in this one. I think both teams finish in the high-80s low 90's and stay under the total of 196.5. BET THE UNDER!
