Pistons vs. Mavericks Prediction

Pistons vs. Mavericks 3/9/16 NBA Picks & Predictions

The Mavericks will attempt to end a three-game losing streak when the host the Pistons tonight at 8:30PM ET.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, Dallas is a 2.5-point home favorite over Detroit after opening as a 2-point fave, while the over/under total is sitting at 204.5 points for tonight's game. The Pistons enter play with a 5-5 record both straight up and against the spread over their last 10 games, while the Mavs 4-6 both SU and ATS of their last 10 contests.

Dallas has had issues with big men over its last few games, specifically DeMarcus Cousins, Kenneth Faried and DeAndre Jordan. With Andre Drummond coming to town, that's a bad omen tonight for the Mavericks, who allowed 22 points to Cousins, 25 to Faried and 23 points to Jordan in the midst of their three-game losing streak.

The Pistons have covered the spread in five of their last seven games while the Mavs are just 1-6 against the number in their last seven contests versus a team with a winning record. With Detroit fighting for a playoff spot in the East, look for Drummond to add to his NBA-high double-double total tonight.
