Pistons vs. Pelicans Prediction
Will the Pistons upset the Pelicans as a small road underdog tonight when the two teams clash at 8:00PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Pelicans are 2-point home favorites versus the Pistons after opening as a 1.5-point favorite. As for the total, the number hit the board at 209 and that's where it currently sits.
The Pistons have won six of their last 10 games and have covered in six of their last 10 as well. They're 29-31 at the betting window overall, however, and are just 11-18 against the spread on the road this season.
The Pelicans have now dropped six of their last 10 games and are just 3-7 at the betting window over that same stretch. They're 28-32 against the spread on the season, including 14-16 ATS at home.
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.
