4* NBA SMASH on Pistons +4.5
Motivated by losing the season's first 2 meetings by 23 and 21 points in Philadelphia, expect the Pistons to get some payback tonight.
Detroit has quietly won 10 of its last 12 ATS. Plus, it is 6-4 SU and 9-1 ATS in its last 10 home games. 2 of those losses came by just 3 and 4 points to Miami and San Antonio.
The struggling 76ers are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games overall, 0-5 ATS in their last 5 road games, 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games following a SU loss, 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS loss, 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games as a favorite and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games as a favorite of 4.5 points or less.
The Pistons are 6-0-1 ATS in their last 7 games as a home underdog and 25-10 ATS in their last 35 games as an underdog of 4.5 points or less. Take Detroit.
