Bet on basketball with the playoff bound Pistons or the Pacers, a team that has gotten surprisingly good NBA betting value this year. Bet on basketball action from the eastern conference as the regular season winds down towards the NBA betting playoffs.
The Detroit Pistons have been one of the worst values on the board to bet on basketball with this season. Detroit had a NBA betting record of 36-39 straight up and 32-43 against the spread. The Pistons offense has been the main culprit in harming the bankrolls of gamblers that bet on basketball with them.
The Pistons ranked 29th in the NBA in scoring, which is one of the most inept outfits to bet on basketball with. A great example of Detroit's lack of offense is that their leading scorer, Tayshaun Prince, was averaging just 14.4 points per game.
The only thing that has saved the Pistons and given gamblers any chance at success when they bet on basketball with Detroit is their 5th ranked defense. Gamblers have continued to be burned as of late when they bet on basketball with Detroit. From March 22 through April 1 the Pistons got the cash in just 2 out of 7 games.
Detroit was trending under the total for most of the season, at least until recently. From March 9 through April 1 the Pistons went under the total in just 3 out of 14 games. The only reason fans will be able to bet on basketball with the Pistons in the post season is because they play in the pathetic eastern conference.
The Indiana Pacers have had a terrible straight up NBA betting season as they stood at 32-44. However the Pacers have quietly emerged as one of the better values to bet on basketball with in the league.
The Pacers lost just 34 out of 76 games for those who bet on basketball with them and lost just 16 out of 37 home games against the spread. From March 21 through April 3 the Pacers continued to reward gamblers that bet on basketball with them as they got the cash in 4 out of 6 games during that stretch.
