Suns vs. Pistons Prediction
Are the Pistons laying too many points to the Suns this afternoon when the two teams clash at 4:30PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Pistons are now 10-point home favorites versus the Suns after opening as 8.5-point favorites. As for the total, the number currently sits at 213 after hitting the board at 216.
Phoenix enters play today having dropped six of its last 10 games on the hardwood and splitting at the betting window at 5-5 ATS. The Suns are 34-34 against the spread on the season, including 16-16 against the number on the road this year.
Detroit has split over its last 10 games, both on the hardwood and against the spread. The Pistons are just 33-36 against the number on the season, but are 21-15 against the spread at home. That said, they have failed to cover in three consecutive games, including back-to-back games at home.
OUR PREDICTION: The underdog has covered in five of the last six games between these two teams and the Suns are 19-7 at the betting window in their last 26 games versus Eastern Conference foes. The Pistons, meanwhile, have dropped four of their last five games at the betting window when their opponent scores 100 points or more in its previous game. The Pistons should win, but 10 points is a lot to lay on a team that hasn't covered in three consecutive games.
