Detroit is 4-10 against the spread in their last 14 games, 2-6 against the spread in their last eight road games, and 1-5 against the spread against the Horizon League. The underdog has covered the point spread in the last five meetings of these two.
With the total at 132 the over looks tobe a solid pay and my free pick. My stronger play is on who will cover the spread and I will post that in the Premium Area as well as on the Aoo.
