NBA Betting: Detroit Pistons vs. Boston Celtics

NBA betting offers a classic Eastern Conference matchup Thursday as the Detroit Pistons travel to Boston to meet the Celtics.

NBA betting fans have found increased interest in the Pistons since the acquisition of Allen Iverson from Denver.  Detroit opened the online basketball betting season with a record of 7-3 straight up but just 5-5 against the NBA betting lines, indicative that their NBA betting value is not quite as good as their straight up value as the NBA betting public has gravitated towards them.

Detroit has been a strong 5-2 against the NBA betting line in road action this season.  The Pistons have gone over the NBA betting total 7 out of 10 games including 5 out of 7 on the road.  Detroit is ranked 8th overall in the NBA betting offensive stat charts while ranking 15th overall on defense.

The Pistons had a three game winning streak against the NBA betting lines snapped on November 16 in an ugly 86-104 loss at Phoenix as 2-point dogs against the NBA betting odds.  On November 9 Detroit lost to Boston 76-88 as 1-point home chalks against the NBA betting odds.

Iverson leads Detroit in scoring and assists to start the NBA betting season while Rasheed Wallace has been the leader in rebounding.  Boston is one of the most popular teams in online basketball betting as the defending world champions that won over 60 games last NBA betting season.

Boston opened this NBA betting season 9-2 straight up but just 4-7 against the NBA betting lines.  The Celtics really lose NBA betting value at home as evidenced by their 1-5 mark against the NBA betting odds, a clear demonstration of the odds makers charging a premium and inflated price for Celtic home games.

Boston has gone under the NBA betting total 7 out of 11 games including 4 out of 6 at home.  The Celtics are ranked a surprising 22nd in offense while ranking a rock solid 3rd overall on the NBA betting defensive charts.  Paul Pierce leads the Celtics in scoring while Rajon Rondo leads in assists.  Kevin Garnett dominates on rebounds.
