Who the Public Likes: Detroit. As of Monday afternoon, 61 percent of public bets have sided with the host Pistons. Online wager info also shows exactly 50 percent of bets on the over and the under.

Who We Like: New Orleans won the first meeting this season last month with a 112-109 victory on its home floor. The Pelicans are 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings and the over has gone 7-3. New Orleans snapped a three-game losing skid Saturday night with a 138-128 double overtime win at the Nets. The Pelicans are 4-6 ATS in their last 10 games and the over-under has gone 5-5. Detroit has lost its last two games on the heels of a five-game winning streak. The Pistons are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games. The over has gone 7-3.

Detroit is 18-11 straight up at home this season and while New Orleans is a respectable 15-14 on the road, it is a team that has to still be reeling from the double OT game. The Pistons are on a back-to-back with travel from Atlanta, but even so I like their chances on a short spread as they match up well at every position.
