This is a lot of points for a Los Angeles Clippers team that’s not playing great right now and actually only wins in the favorite role by an average of 4.8 points. The Detroit Pistons have been a little more competitive lately, and they’re losing their last five games by an average of 5.8 points. I’ll take a shot with the Pistons and the free buckets.
