LINE MOVEMENT

The point spread for this game has not moved off the original number of 2.5 in favor of Detroit. The total, however, has shifted. After hitting the board at 203, the over/under is now a full point higher at 204.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of this writing, 56% of the betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks are on the Kings to cover the spread. Meanwhile, 63% of the betting tickets are also on the over tonight.

KEY INJURY TO WATCH

The Pistons are still without Reggie Jackson (ankle) and Luke Kennard (hamstring) is questionable. On the other side, the Kings should have Willie Cauley-Stein (finger), who is probable.

BETTING STRATEGY

Man, it's hard to back the Pistons right now. They're a train wreck, dropping eight of their last 10 games straight up and six of their last 10 games against the spread. They're also 6-20 against the number in their last 26 games overall, have covered only once in their last 10 road games, and are 1-4 ATS in their last five games against non-conference competition.

On the other side, the Kings have been a great play. They're 5-1 against the spread in their last six home games, are 4-0 against the number in their last four games overall, and are 13-3-1 at the betting window in their last 17 games when facing Eastern Conference competition. They've covered in six of their last six games after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game as well.
