Score: 95 - 100
Point Spread: -3½/-105 New Orleans
You should always play against a team like Detroit when they are revenging a loss against a team that scored 100 points or more and that opponent is coming off a road blowout loss of 20 points or more. This situation is 85-46 (64.9%) over the last five seasons. The Pistons are 6-16 ATS in road games over the last two seasons when playing against teams shooting 36% or better from beyond the three point line. New Orleans has been dangerous from three point land shooting 37.1% this year.
The Hornets are 12-4 ATS coming off a road loss by 10 points or more this season. The Piston’s are 8-20 straight up on the road and they are entering their second leg of a three game road stretch. Detroit pulled off a surprise win over Washington and that has them in a letdown spot tonight playing on just one day of rest. These teams are equally bad, but the smart money is on the home team laying a small number.
