Who We Like: The road team has covered in both meetings this season, with the Pistons winning 114-80 on Jan. 10 and the Nets following up with a 101-100 victory in Detroit on Jan. 21. The Pistons have won four games in a row immediately after an eight-game losing streak. But in the four games and the previous three with Blake Griffin, Detroit still only went 2-2 ATS. Meanwhile, Brooklyn has last four in a row straight up and seven of their previous eight contests. The under has gone 0-4 in the last four meetings overall and 5-1 in the last five meetings in Brooklyn. The Nets are 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings overall.
With the Pistons being red-hot and Brooklyn struggling, I'm going to take the home team as they stay at home and showed recently they can blow out a visiting opponent.
