Pacers at Pistons picks and predictions


Pistons 118, Pacers 111


The Pacers are just 12-21 on the road and this may be the Pistons’ last chance at a home win as their final 5 games in Detroit are against playoff teams.

Despite Detroit’s record they do have a solid 3-point defense, ranking 12th in opponent 3s attempted and made. In Saturday’s game they held Indiana to just 25.7% beyond the arc.

The Pistons lead the league in free throw attempts and are 3rd in free throws made, but on Saturday the Pacers had 34 shots, 7 more than the Pistons. And Detroit shot just 66.7% from the line. Expect this number to reverse on Monday.


Against the spread

Indiana has covered just once in the last 5 road games against a team with a losing home record. But for those worried about betting on a 15-53 Pistons squad to win straight up, you can always take the points.

BET PISTONS +3.5 (-110).


On 1 day of rest both teams trend towards the Under. The Pistons are 10-4 in their last 14 games and the Pacers have gone Under in 6 of their last 8 games on 1 day rest.

LEAN UNDER 226.5 (-112)
