Detroit Pistons DFS Spin

The Pistons will be without point guard Cade Cunningham, power forward Marvin Bagley, and center Nerlens Noel on Sunday. Detroit also recently traded for former Golden State center James Wiseman but it’s unknown if he’ll be able to suit up for Sunday’s clash with Toronto.

If you’re looking for a sleeper at shooting guard in DFS consider Detroit’s Alec Burks. Burks should come at a good price and he’s putting up decent numbers this season, averaging 12.8 points, 3 rebounds, 2.2 assists, and 1.9 made three-pointers per game for the Pistons. 

For a cheaper option at center, consider Detroit’s Jalen Duren. Duren recently recorded a career-high 30 points in Friday night’s win over San Antonio. For the season Duren is shooting 66.1% from the field while scoring 8.8 points per game and hauling in 8.9 boards per contest. 

Toronto Raptors DFS Spin

The Raptors won’t have small forward O.G. Anunoby for their clash with the Pistons on Sunday. Anunoby is out with a wrist injury and had been averaging 16.9 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 2.1 steals per game for Toronto this season.

If you need multi-category production from your guard spot, consider the Raptors’ Fred Van Vleet. The veteran out of Wichita State is posting 19.6 points, 4.4 rebounds, 6.4 assists, 1.6 steals, and 2.9 made three-pointers per game for Toronto this season. He could likely be acquired for a better price than other premium shooting guards in most DFS formats on Sunday.

Pistons vs. Raptors NBA Prediction

This is a pure value play for me. I think the line of 10 points is a bit too high. I understand that Detroit isn’t a very good team and they just traded away Saddiq Bey, but they have some young players who may have something to prove against the 2019 NBA champion Toronto Raptors. I don’t think the Pistons will win this game, but because of the hefty point spread, they won’t have to. I’ll take Detroit and the points on the road.
