According to oddsmakers at RealBets, the Pacers are favored at home tonight, as they are getting odds of -3.5 points against the Pistons. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 204 points.

Indiana (26-24, 25-24-1 ATS) is fresh off a 6-point loss at Atlanta last night as it now returns to action today against the Pistons (27-24, 27-23-1 ATS). Playing back-to-back has not been a strong suit for Indiana, as it is just 2-7 against the spread with no rest this season. That record is the worst of any team in the NBA.

Detroit is coming off a 111-105 win over the Knicks on Thursday night that saw it nearly blow a 27-point lead. The Pistons enter a favorable spot with their one day of rest as the Pistons are 17-12-1 ATS this season with 1 day off, which is the third-best cover percentage in the league. The Pistons have also covered in six of their last 10 meetings with Indiana.
