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.
