Trail Blazers vs. Pistons Pick

NBA Predictions: Will Pistons stay hot versus Trail Blazers? 2/5/18

Are the rejuvenated Detroit Pistons going to win a fourth straight game at home tonight when they play the Portland Trail Blazers at 7PM ET?

Who Oddsmakers Like: Detroit. According to oddsmakers at YouWager, the Pistons are listed as a 2.5-point favorite on the spread line. The over-under is set at 211 points. Detroit opened as a 4-point favorite, while the total has risen from 209.

Bet Tonight's NBA Action

Who the Public Likes: Detroit. As of Monday afternoon, 72 percent of public bets are being placed on the Pistons.

Injury Report: Trail Blazers point guard Shabazz Napier missed the last game with big toe soreness and his status is questionable for tonight. CJ Wilcox is rehabbing from knee surgery and is out indefinitely. For the Pistons, Luke Kennard missed the last game with a knee injury and is questionable for tonight. Dwight Buycks missed the last game with an illness and is questionable. Reggie Jackson is out until late February with an ankle sprain. Jon Leuer is likely out for the season following ankle surgery.

Who the Trends Like: Portland is 0-4 ATS in the last four meetings. The over is 11-1 in the last 12 meetings and 7-1 in the last eight meetings in Detroit.

Who We Like: Detroit has won three in a row since acquiring Blake Griffin, the last two with him in the lineup as they won close home games over the Grizzlies and Heat. The Pistons have the luxury of remaining at home for this tilt, while the Trail Blazers are on a back-to-back after losing a heartbreaker at the buzzer yesterday afternoon with a 97-96 defeat at the Celtics. Detroit will be fresher here and have dominated the series the last couple years. But there are severe issues with the Pistons' bench and Portland will be hungry to bounce back quickly. I like the visitors in this spot.
