Against The Spread Pick
The Detroit Pistons and Atlanta Hawks have both really struggled this season, which makes this game a little hard to handicap. The Pistons are only 7-14 away from home, while the Hawks are 2-6 playing on zero days rest. The Pistons are coming off a win off a very good Celtics team on the road. In that game they only gave up 103 points and their defense against the Hawks on tired legs should find success. Even without Blake Griffen, they should be able to get the job done in this one. Back the Pistons to get the job done.
Over Under Pick
Over the last five games the Pistons are averaging 110 points per game and have should no issue attacking a Hawks defense that is giving up 114.8 points during the same stretch. The Hawks aren’t going to keep up but they are going to have to score a lot of points to keep up. The over is 12-5 in the last 17 meetings played between the two teams. The over is 7-1 in the last eight meetings played between the two teams in Atlanta. Back the over to cash.
