Online basketball betting fans know that Detroit’s Allen Iverson will carry strong NBA basketball betting incentive to show up the team and coach that traded him earlier this season. Iverson’s Detroit Pistons have been a sub par online basketball betting commodity so far this season.
Detroit had an overall online basketball betting record of 20-11 straight up but just 14-17 against the NBA betting lines. Detroit has been a better online basketball betting team as of late; however, as the transition following the arrival of Iverson was difficult at first.
From December 27 through January 2 the Pistons went on a nice online basketball betting spurt in which they went 4-0 straight up and 3-1 against the NBA basketball betting board. Detroit’s online basketball betting strength has been their 6th ranked defense while the offense has been weak and had an overall ranking of 23rd.
It is likely that Detroit has a NBA basketball betting intangible edge for this game as Iverson was badmouthed in the press after leaving Denver and that included quotes from Denver coach George Karl.
Then again it could be Denver that has the online basketball betting intangible edge here as Karl certainly does not want to get shown up by Iverson on his home floor in front of the Nugget fans and Denver superstar Carmelo Anthony will want to come off as the dominant player in the game.
Denver had an overall online basketball betting record of 13-8-1 as a favorite and was 8-6-1 against the NBA betting lines in home action. Anthony led the Nuggets in scoring with an average of 21 points per game and Denver’s 4th ranked offense was its main online basketball betting strength.
Denver was also a good over team as evidenced by their overall online basketball betting record of 19-15 over the total, which included a home record of 9-6 over the number. From December 26 through January 2 the Nuggets went on an over/under streak of 5 consecutive overs.
