Jack's Free Pick Saturday!
Portland vs. Detroit,
01/21/2012 19:30 EDT,
Score: 91 - 94
Total: -110/+181½ Under
The bar has been set too high tonight in this showdown between the Portland Trail Blazers and Detroit Pistons. I envision a low-scoring affair Saturday as neither team exceeds 90 points in this one.
Detroit is scoring just 84.7 points/game this season, and they are 10-6 to the UNDER in all games this year. The Blazers have not been effective on the road offensively. They are scoring a mere 90.4 points/game on 40.7 percent shooting away from home.
The UNDER is 8-1 in Trail Blazers last 9 road games. The UNDER is 4-1 in Portland's last 5 games overall. The UNDER is 4-1 in Pistons last 5 games overall. The UNDER is 4-0 in Pistons last 4 games as an underdog. The UNDER is 12-4 in the last 16 meetings in this series, including 7-2 in the last 9 meetings in Detroit. Bet the UNDER in this game Saturday.
