Pistons vs. Spurs Prediction
The Detroit Pistons have an opportunity to reach .500 for the first time since they were 16-16 following a win in Washington on December 26. That said, in order to accomplish that feat, the Pistons will need to upend the Spurs tonight in San Antonio. Will they do it?

Detroit Pistons Fantasy Spin
Andre Drummond dominated the Pacers in a 113-109 win on Monday, scoring 26 points with 16 rebounds, one assist, two steals, three blocks and one turnover in 38 minutes. Drummond has been playing out of his mind and came into tonight's game averaging 22.0 points, 16.0 rebounds, 2.5 blocks and 2.3 steals in February. His recent surge is a big reason why the Pistons have won eight of their last 10 games as the team tries to solidify their playoff spot in the East -- they currently sit in 7th with a 29-30 record. Drummond is the No. 3 player in standard 9-category leagues for the past month and his owners should be in great shape for the fantasy playoffs.
San Antonio Spurs Fantasy Spin
LaMarcus Aldridge scored 26 points on 12-of-21 shooting vs. the Nets on Monday, adding 10 rebounds, one assist and three blocks in 37 minutes. February has been arguably his worst month, as he was averaging 17.9 points, 9.3 boards and 1.3 blocks on 45.6% from the field prior to this outburst. San Antonio has lost three straight games and are 3-7 in February which has moved them down to No. 8 in the West. That may be a blessing in disguise for his fantasy owners though, as it means the Spurs may not be able to monitor LMA's minutes down the stretch. The same is true for DeMar DeRozan who finished with 23 points, five rebounds, two assists and one steal in 34 minutes.
NBA Betting Trends
The Pistons are 6-2 against the spread in their last eight games after scoring 100 points or more in their previous game.
The Spurs have lost eight of their last nine games at the betting window following an ATS loss.
The Spurs have been a disaster of late, dropping 10 of their last 11 games against the spread and five of their last six home games ATS. They’re also winless at 0-8 at the betting window in their last eight games playing on one day of rest and are 0-4 against the number in their last four home games following a road trip of seven or more days. The Pistons, meanwhile, have won eight of their last 10 games and have covered the spread in six of their last eight games overall. I love getting the team getting points that is also playing better.
