76ers vs. Pistons Pick

NBA Predictions: Will the Pistons cover 3.5 points vs. the 76ers? 10/23/17

Will the Detroit Pistons be able to pick up a comfortable win at home over the winless Philadelphia 76ers when the two meet tonight at 7PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Pistons are favored at home, as they are getting odds of -3.5 points against the 76ers. The over/under total for the contest is listed at 214 points. Detroit has won and covered the spread in six of the last seven meetings with the 76ers. Tonight’s game will take place from Little Caesars Arena in Detroit, Michigan.

The Pistons are coming off a 111-107 win at New York on Saturday night to improve to 2-1 on the season. Detroit has covered the spread in all three games this year, including a 102-90 win at home over the Hornets. Detroit is putting up 108 points per game right now while allowing 104 per game. The Pistons are being led by Tobias Harris, who is averaging 24.3 points and 6.3 rebounds per game. Andre Drummond is adding 12.7 points and 12.3 rebounds per game.

Philadelphia is off to an 0-3 start following a 128-94 loss at Toronto on Saturday night. The 76ers are 1-2 against the spread, covering only in the season opener at Washington, a 5-point loss. The 76ers are scoring just 100.3 points per game while allowing 116.7 per contest. Ben Simmons is leading the team right now with 15.7 points, 10.3 rebounds and six assists per game. Joel Embiid is adding 14.5 points and 13.5 rebounds per game through two games that he has played in.

Bet on 76ers vs. Pistons

This season was supposed to be the year the process finally started to play out for Philadelphia, yet the team is off to another dreadful start. They also are still being very cautious with Embiid, who is arguably their best player. Detroit has a nice balance on offense right now and the defense is a strength behind Stan Van Gundy. Philly is just 2-8 against the spread in its last 10 trips to Detroit. The public betting is siding with the Pistons right now and I am with them. Take Detroit at home.
