Pistons vs. Nets Prediction
Are the Nets a good play as a home underdog tonight against the Pistons at 7:30PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Nets are 5-point home underdogs versus the Pistons while the over/under currently sits at 215 points, down from 217.5.
Detroit has split over its last 10 games, both on the hardwood and at the betting window. The Pistons also own a losing ATS record on the season at 34-36, which includes an unsightly 12-21 record against the spread on the road.
Brooklyn has won just seven of its last 10 games but is 6-4 against the spread during that stretch. The Nets still own a losing ATS record on the season at 32-34 and are also 14-21 against the number at home this year.
OUR PREDICTION: The home team is a perfect 5-0 against the spread in the last five meetings between these two teams while the Pistons are just 2-7 against the number in their last nine games versus the Nets and 0-5 ATS in their last five trips to Brooklyn. The Pistons have not fared well at the betting window on the road either, covering just four times in their last five games away from Auburn Hills, MI. The Nets, meanwhile, are 6-2 against the spread in their last eight games overall and 5-0 ATS in their last five games versus Eastern Conference foes.
