76ers vs. Pistons Free Pick
The Detroit Pistons look to get back to the .500 mark tonight when they host the Philadelphia 76ers at 7:30PM ET.
According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, the Pistons are heavy favorites at home tonight, as they are getting odds of -11 points against the 76ers. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 210 points.
Detroit is 28-29 on the season, 16-11 at home and 28-28-1 against the spread. Philadelphia is 8-48 overall, 3-26 on the road and 26-29-1 against the spread. These two have met twice this season, with Detroit winning and covering in both contests. The Pistons were a 12-point favorite at home in a 110-97 win on Jan. 27. They were a 9-point favorite in a 107-95 win at Philly on Dec. 11.
The Pistons snapped a five-game losing streak on Monday with a 96-88 win at Cleveland that could be the spark they need to get back in the Eastern Conference playoff race. Their bench has been somewhat hampered with the loss of rookie Stanley Johnson for two weeks, but a trade for Tobias Harris has worked out well thus far. Harris is averaging 17 points in his three games with the team. Philly has lost five straight, but the 76ers have covered in four of their last six. Still, Detroit has had a tough schedule as of late and will be looking forward to beating up on a bad team. Look for the Pistons to get to .500 with some ease tonight.
