Against the Spread Pick
The Pistons just walloped Atlanta. Blake Griffin did not play but they scored 136 points thanks to a strong game from Derrick Rose (27 points) and surprising 20+ point performances from Svi Mykhailiuk and Markieff Morriss. The bottom of the East is light so there is still a shot for the Pistons to get back into things if they can find some consistency. This is another game that they need to win. Andre Drummond is on the block but those rumours are not affecting his game much. The Wizards are looking to break a 3 game SUATS skid. Their defense is atrocious but still the 140 points they gave up to Toronto in their last game was high. Davis Bertans is enjoying the opportunity to be more of a featured scorer, however, he is struggling with the consistency required of being a #2 option. When he is knocking down shots it is a game-changer because he is not shy at all. I am not high on DET but I like their form coming into this one. Take the Pistons.
Over Under Pick
If you look at the most recent results from these teams you have to think about the over. Detroit is not a great offensive team but Washington makes it pretty easy to get what you want. The Wizards can score and create lots of opportunities with their pace. Take the over in this one.
