Hollywood Sports' ROAD WARRIOR WIPEOUT: Frank Sawyer's Hollywood Sports DELIVERED his 25* play on Dallas last night to fuel his SIZZLING 22 of 35 (63%) NBA run! Now Frank spots a team ready to TAKE CARE OF BUSINESS on the road while being backed by compelling team trends that EXPOSE an EXPLOSIVE 42-10 combined winning angle for this situation. CA$H IT IN!
Game: Detroit Pistons at Cleveland Cavaliers Mar 28 2012 7:05PM
Prediction: Detroit Pistons
Grade: Winner (100)
Reason: At 7:00 PM EST on Wednesday, we will be playing the Detroit Pistons minus the point(s) versus the Cleveland Cavaliers. Detroit (17-32) snapped their five game losing streak on Monday with their 79-77 win at Washington. Rodney Stuckey was the difference maker making his first start after being on the shelf with an injury as he scored 12 of his 24 points in the fourth quarter -- including the game-winning shot -- to lead the Pistons to victory. Detroit has covered the point spread in 4 straight games against teams with a winning percentage below 40%. The Pistons have also covered the spread in 4 straight games as a favorite of under five points. And while the Cavaliers 9-15 on their home court, Detroit has covered 10 of their last 13 road games against teams with a winning percentage below 40% on their home court.
Cleveland (17-30) has lost four straight games after their 103-85 loss at Philadelphia last night as a 9-point underdog. The Cavaliers have failed to cover the point spread in 5 of their last 6 games following a straight-up defeat. Cleveland has also failed to cover the point spread in 9 of their last 13 games after allowing at least 100 points in their last game. The Cavaliers have failed to cover the point spread in 6 of their last 8 games against teams with a winning percentage below 40%. And Cleveland has not defended their home court well as they have failed to cover the spread in 4 straight home games as an underdog. Together, these team trends produce our specific 42-10 ATS combined winning angle for this situation. Lastly, because the Cavaliers have failed to cover the spread in four straight games, they fall into an empirical "play-against" angle that has been 65% effective over the last five seasons. Home underdogs who have failed to cover the point spread in at least three of their last four games and who are playing their game without a day of rest have then failed to cover the point spread in 60 of the last 93 situations where these conditions applied. 20* NBA Road Warrior Wipeout with the Detroit Pistons minus the point(s) versus the Cleveland Cavaliers. Best of luck for us -- Frank.
