The Hawks come into today’s game one of the hotter teams in the NBA, winning nine of their last 10 to get to 24-17 overall. They are 7-3 against the spread in this stretch to get to 21-20 against the spread on the season.

Bet on Hawks vs. Pistons

The Pistons snapped a three-game losing streak with a 102-97 win at the Lakers on Sunday to close out a West Coast road trip. Detroit is now 19-24 overall with a 19-24 mark against the spread as well. The Pistons average just 99.8 points per game on offense this season while allowing 101 points per contest. However, they are giving up 111.6 points per game over their last five games. The Pistons could continue to be without Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, who is dealing with a shoulder sprain. He is averaging 14.5 points per game this season. Tobias Harris is the leading scorer with 16.7 points per contest while Andre Drummond is putting up 14.5 points and 13.5 rebounds per game.

Detroit has been a pretty good team at home, but I have trouble trusting them right now. The Hawks are playing really good basketball and they have a more consistent offense than Detroit. The Pistons need a good defensive effort to beat the top-level teams in the East and those performances haven’t been coming very often.
