Pistons vs. Jazz Pick

NBA Picks: Are the Jazz giving up too many points to the Pistons on Friday?

Will the Utah Jazz be too much for the Detroit Pistons to handle when they meet up tonight at 10:30PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Jazz are the clear favorite tonight, as Utah is getting odds of -10.5 points against the Pistons. The over/under total for the contest is listed at 190 points. The Pistons have won their last two against Utah and have covered the spread in three straight meetings with the Jazz.

Detroit is coming off a 127-107 loss at Golden State last night for their second straight loss on this West Coast road trip. Detroit is now 18-23 on the season and 18-23 against the spread after going 1-4 against the spread in their last five. The Pistons put up just 100.3 point per game on offense while allowing 100.9 points per contest. Reggie Jackson is averaging 16.8 points and 5.5 assists per game to lead the team while Andre Drummond is averaging 14.7 points and 13.3 rebounds per game. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, who is averaging 14.5 points per game, is doubtful to play tonight with a shoulder injury. Backup forward Jon Leuer is also out with a knee injury.

Bet on Pistons vs. Jazz

Detroit has struggled over the last five quarters of basketball and now heads to Utah to face a team that is even better defensively than it is. I expect Utah to do its thing on defense and be able to cover against a Detroit team that is lacking a pair of double-digit scorers tonight.

NBA DAILY PREDICTION: UTAH JAZZ -10.5
