Bet Tonight's NBA Action

The Lakers have dropped seven of their last 10 games but covered in seven of those 10 contests. They are coming off a 121-107 victory at the Knicks on Monday, a game in which D'Angelo Russell was quiet, scoring just four points on 1-of-4 shooting with six assists and two boards in 20 minutes. Larry Nance double-doubled in the victory, scoring 10 points and nabbing 10 rebounds.

The Pistons have won six of their last 10 games overall and are 6-4 against the spread during that span. In their 113-96 win over the 76ers on Monday, Andre Drummond scored 16 points, grabbed 17 rebounds and avoided an injury scare when he excited early after being elbowed in the ribs. He's expected to be fine.
