The NBA season rolls on and we go straight in early on this time with a pick in order to try and take advantage of some poor lines early on.

NBA Basketball
LA Clippers v DET Pistons – JJ Redick Over 14 points @ 1.85 (MarathonBet) – 2.5 points

The LA Clippers entertain a Detroit Pistons team who are coming on the back of a 2 game winning streak against Sacramento and Phoenix, and will be in confident mood especially after Clippers have dropped their last 2 on the trot.

The Clippers will rely a lot of their scoring on JJ Redick tonight especially since Blake Griffin has been having a rough stretch. In this last 5 games JJ has been averaging around 18 points per game and we all know his biggest feature is his 3 point shooting. He has shot 6 and made around 3 per game during the last 5; and particularly when 5-7 from downtown in their last game against the Bucks in a 5 point loss.

JJ also gets to the free throw line at least 3 times a game, and make almost all of them, with a career shooting average of 89%. With that said that is almost 9 points from 3-ball and 3 points from the charity stripe; which has us at 12 points. All we need is another bucket and against a poor defensive Pistons team and I think that should happen.

Young guard Caldwell-Pope will be marking him and he has conceded 23 against Portland, 14 against Sacramento and 18 against Phoenix against defenders he marked and I expect the experienced Redick to continue doing that tonight with us expecting only 14 points from him.
