1 unit on Game Total UNDER 216 -110 (risk 1 to return 1.91) RESULT: WIN
The Lakers are still without two key offensive cogs in LeBron James and Rajon Rondo. Coach Luke Walton asked for a focus on defense the last game and the team responded with a 107-97 win at Dallas. They allowed 30 second-half points and 41.9% shooting for the game. The Lakers are on a 14-4-1 run UNDER the total at home. Into town comes a bad Pistons offense. Detroit is #24 in the NBA in scoring, #29 in shooting (.435), #28 from long range, and #25 from the free throw line. The Pistons are 19-6-3 UNDER the total on the road against a team with a winning home record. Los Angeles is 12-4 UNDER versus losing teams, plus 20-8 UNDER at home against teams with losing road records. With the UNDER 16-7 when these teams clash, look for more defense than offense. Take the UNDER here.
