Detroit has won and covered the spread in two straight meetings with Charlotte, including a 112-89 win on Nov. 29 in Charlotte.

Detroit is coming off a 102-91 win over Chicago at home last night last to move to 12-11 on the year. The Pistons are 12-11 against the spread, covering in four of their last five games. Now with a healthy roster, Detroit is hoping to put together a win streak. Reggie Jackson is averaging 12.5 points and 5.5 assists per game. Tobias Harris is the team leader right now with 17 points per game while Andre Drummond is averaging 14.1 points and 12.9 rebounds per game. Detroit is now averaging 100.1 points per game on offense while giving up 96.7 points per game on defense.

Bet on Pistons vs. Hornets

Charlotte is coming off a 109-101 win at Dallas on Monday. The Hornets have won four of their last six games, but they are just 2-5 against the spread in their last seven. They are 12-9 on the season and 10-10-1 against the spread on the season. The Hornets are putting up 105.3 points per game this year, but giving up 103 points per game. The team may get Marvin Williams back today. He has been out with a knee injury. He averages 9.9 points and 6.1 rebounds per game. Kemba Walker is leading the team with 23.6 points and 5.0 assists per game.

Detroit has really turned it on over the last few weeks. Their offense has seen a nice surge, scoring over 100 in five of their last seven. Their defense remains strong, as they are holding opponents under 100 in five of the last seven as well. The Hornets are playing well as well, but the Pistons are going to remain competitive. I like Detroit to cover, if not win outright.

NBA DAILY PREDICTION: DETROIT PISTONS +5.5
