OUR PREDICTION: The Pistons are just 2-7 against the spread in their last nine games versus the Pelicans and are 1-5 against the number in their last six games in New Orleans. They're also winless at 0-5 at the betting window in their last five games playing on no rest and after going to overtime last night in Auburn Hills against the Trail Blazers, they had to travel to New Orleans and play on tired legs. Even with the Pelicans struggling, this is a good spot to take New Orleans.
