Pelicans routed by Celtics

New Orleans had been playing pretty well for the last few weeks, but the Pelicans were dominated at Boston on Saturday, 140-105. That ended four-game cover streak for New Orleans. The Pelicans are 14-26 on the season, 7-14 on the road, 18-20-2 against the spread and 22-18 with the over.

New Orleans is putting up 113.1 points per game on offense this year while shooting 45 percent as a team. Defensively, the Pelicans are giving up 117.1 points per game while allowing opponents to shoot 46.9 percent against them. New Orleans has some injury concerns as Jrue Holiday, Derrick Favors, JJ Redick and Kenrich Williams are all questionable tonight. Brandon Ingram is leading the team with 25.1 points, 6.8 rebounds and 4.2 assists per game.

Pistons continue slide

Detroit is coming off back-to-back losses at home to the likes of the Cavs and the Bulls. They have failed to cover in three straight. The Pistons are 14-26 on the season, 8-12 at home, 14-25-1 against the spread and 23-17 with the over.

The Pistons are struggling on offense this year, averaging just 108.2 points per game despite shooting 46.4 percent as a team. Defensively, Detroit is giving up 111.1 points per game while allowing opponents to shoot 47.6 percent. The Pistons continue to be without Blake Griffin, Luke Kennard and Reggie Jackson due to injuries. Andre Drummond has been leading the team with 17.6 points and 15.9 rebounds per game. Derrick Rose is adding 17.8 points and 5.8 assists per contest.

NBA Betting Trends

New Orleans

The Pelicans are 8-1-1 against the spread in their last 10 games and 4-1-1 ATS in their last six road games.

Detroit

The Pistons are 3-9 against the spread in their last 12 Monday games and 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games following a loss.

Prediction:

The Pistons won the first meeting in New Orleans back on Dec. 9, but the two teams are playing very differently a month later. The Pistons are banged up and don’t have much to offer in terms of consistency. The Pelicans look to have finally clicked as a team and it has shown over recent weeks. While they were run over by Boston on Saturday, it was the second night of a back-to-back on the road. I think they will be able to rebound tonight and get past an unmotivated Detroit squad.

NBA Prediction: New Orleans Pelicans -1
