Bet on Pistons vs. Celtics

Detroit showed its resiliency at OKC and now gets to stay on the road for another challenge at the red-hot Boston Celtics. We like the Pistons to cover here. Drummond should be motivated to have another big game and has the physical presence to overwhelm the Celtics in the interior. Shooting guard Avery Bradley will be motivated after being traded from Boston to the Pistons over the summer.
