Pistons free falling

Detroit has lost three straight and six of its last seven, failing to cover the spread in all six losses. The Pistons are 17-22 on the season, 6-12 on the road, 17-21-1 against the spread and 20-19 with the under.

The Pistons have struggled on offense this season, scoring just 107.0 points per game while shooting only 43.5 percent from the field and 32.8 percent from the arc. Defensively, the Pistons are giving up 109.8 points per game, but they have the league’s best 3-point defense (31.9 percent). Ish Smith (groin) and Zaza Pachulia (leg) are both questionable to play tonight. Blake Griffin is leading the team with 25.1 points, 8.3 rebounds and 5.3 assists per game. Andre Drummond is adding 16.8 points and 15.0 rebounds per contest.

Kings need some momentum

Sacramento is coming off a 115-111 loss at Phoenix on Tuesday night. The Kings have lost five of their last six games, but they have covered the spread in two of their last three games. The Kings are 20-21 overall, 11-10 at home, 23-18 against the spread and 27-14 with the over.

The Kings have one of the top offenses in the league, averaging 115 points per game while shooting 47 percent from the field and 39 percent from the arc. Defensively, the Kings are giving up 116.4 points per game while allowing opponents to shoot 47.2 percent. Buddy Hield is leading the team with 20.2 points and 5.0 rebounds per game while De’Aaron Fox is adding 18.0 points and 7.3 assists per contest.

NBA Betting Trends

Detroit

The Pistons are 2-5 against the spread in their last seven conference games and 1-5 ATS in their last six road games.

Sacramento

The Kings have covered the spread in 21 of their last 27 against Eastern Conference opponents and 17-5 ATS in their last 22 games playing on 1 day of rest.

Prediction:

The Kings have been struggling, but they should be just fine tonight at home. The Pistons played last night at Los Angeles and looked very unmotivated down the stretch. Detroit will not have the offense to compete with the Kings. Sacramento should put up a big total while the Pistons continue to struggle to make shots. I like the Kings to cover with some ease.

NBA Prediction: Sacramento Kings -5
