Matchup History

Oakland’s 75-59 win over the Titans back on February 13th, 2022, gave the Golden Grizzlies their 14th win in their last 16 head-to-head meetings with Detroit.


Oakland is 4-14 ATS in their last 18 road games and 8-25 ATS in their last 33 games overall while the over is 5-2-1 in their last 8 games against a team with a losing record. Detroit is 17-4-1 ATS in their last 22 home games and 13-3-1 ATS in their last 17 home games against a team with a losing road record while the over is 9-3 in their last 12 Monday games.


I’m sticking with Oakland in this one. I get why the Titans are favored at home and Oakland hasn’t been the most reliable road cover team, but they have won three straight conference road games and covered and won both outright in the underdog role. Detroit’s only losses have come against the top-end teams of the Horizon, but Oakland’s had their number in recent years and I think Oakland could get another one here but I’m going to take Oakland and the points here.
