Against the Spread Pick
It is a bit surprising that the Suns have more wins on the road than at home this season. They have lost three in a row SUATS but this is a nice spot for the visitors. With DeAndre Ayton playing well they are going to make the Pistons best player work. The big problem is going to be depth but I am not sure the Pistons have much to exploit that. Devin Booker is going to enjoy putting up some big numbers in this spot. After a surprising win over Denver on the weekend the Pistons put forth a feeble effort in their recent loss to Memphis. They only scored 10 points in the third quarter and as nice a story as the Grizzlies are it is not because of their defense. This is a spot where they could rebound but they are still pretty shorthanded. Leading scorer Derrick Rose is out. Take Phoenix.
Over Under Pick
Even when healthy the Pistons are not blessed with a lot of scoring options. No Rose he and still no Blake Griffin. Reggie Jackson helps a little but unless he gets red hot we will be reminded that it has been a couple of seasons since he was an impact player. I am looking for a good offensive game from the Suns but it won’t be enough. Take the under.
