Detroit Pistons vs. Philadelphia 76ers
The Detroit Pistons go for their fourth straight win tonight as they host the Philadelphia 76ers from the Palace of Auburn Hills The Pistons are -3 point favorites over the 76ers with an over/under point total set at 194.5.
Head to head, the favorite is 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings. The Pistons are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 home games vs. a team with a road winning % of less than .400 and 6-0-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall, but just 3-7 ATS in their last 10 home games. The 76ers on the other hand are 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 games vs. a team with a losing S.U. record, but just 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 games following a S.U. win and 8-24 ATS in their last 32 games playing on 0 days rest.
While Detroit was the worst team in the basketball in the month of March, they have turned things around in the latter stages of the season as they come into tonight’s game on a three game winning streak. Not only that, the Pistons have made it look easy in wins over Chicago, Cleveland and Charlotte, winning each game by an average of 13.6 points per game. Meanwhile, the 76ers come into tonight’s game of back-to-back double-digit wins over Washington and at Cleveland last night.
In a game that is meaningless to both teams, you have to give the nod to the home team in this one. The Pistons have taken two of three against Philly this season and they are playing some pretty good basketball at the moment. The 76ers are too, but having played last night, the common sense pick would be the Pistons here.
