Pistons looking for consistency
Detroit is 3-2 in its last five games, but is coming off a 125-112 loss at home to the Grizzlies last night. The Pistons are now 17-29 on the season, 9-14 at home, 17-28-1 against the spread and 28-18 with the over.

NBA Betting Trends
The Nets are 1-10 against the spread in their last 11 games following a loss and 0-4 ATS in their last four games following a double-digit loss at home.
The Pistons are 1-4 against the spread in their last five games on no rest and 2-9 ATS in their last 11 home games.
The Nets are in a funk, but their five-game losing streak has been against some of the best teams in the league. They have lost to the Lakers, Bucks, Jazz and 76ers twice. Detroit is coming off a game last night and the Pistons are struggling with injuries right now. While Detroit has been able to win some games as of late, I think they will struggle with the quick turnaround tonight. The Nets should welcome playing a lower-level team now, getting a chance to get back on track.
NBA Prediction: Brooklyn Nets -1.5
