Detroit enters with a 1-1 record following a 115-111 loss at the Wizards Friday night. New York is 0-1 after a 105-84 loss at Oklahoma City on Thursday. The two teams split the four matchups 2-2 straight up and ATS last season. The total went under three times.

Bet on Pistons vs. Knicks

The Pistons' struggles in New York coupled with playing a second game in as many days with travel makes this a good spot for the Knicks. We know New York isn't going to be very good this season, but it has one dominant player in Porzingis who is capable of carrying a team to a win.
