Knicks a horrible home bet, host Pistons

Detroit Pistons vs. New York Knicks 3/5/16 NBA Picks & Predictions

Despite covering the spread against the Celtics in Boston on Friday night, the Knicks have been a poor home bet of late. They'll host the Pistons tonight at 7:00PM ET.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, New York is a 5-point home underdog versus Detroit tonight after opening as a 4.5-point dog. The total, meanwhile, opened at 198.5 but has jumped to 200 points. (Compare lines for all of tonight's NBA games.)

The Knicks have failed to cover the spread in eight of their last nine home games and are just 4-10 against the number in their last 14 games overall. The Pistons, meanwhile, are 4-1 against the number in their last five games overall and the favorite has covered in 17 of the last 22 meetings between these two teams.

Andre Drummond scored just nine points in 27 minutes against the Spurs on Wednesday while shooting 1-for-8 from the line. But he should post a double-double tonight against a Knicks team that ranks 20th in the league in defensive efficiency.
