Trail Blazers at Pistons picks and predictions

Prediction

Trail Blazers 116, Pistons 111

Moneyline

AVOID.

While the home underdog could be enticing, the Pistons are 1-3 straight up over their last 4 road games and have lost 9 of their last 10. Similarly, Portland (-24) is too pricey to back even though it should win.

Against the spread

LEAN PISTONS +5.5 (-108).

The Pistons have lost 9 of their last 10, but they are 5-5 ATS in that span. They have covered 3 straight games at home despite having lost 2 in a row there.

The Trail Blazers are 1-3 ATS over their last 4 road games and are just 15-17 ATS on the road this season.

For a partial unit given the trends, lean PISTONS +5.5 (-108).

Over/Under

BET UNDER 230.5 (-115).

The Pistons are 1-4 O/U in their last 5 games, and 4 of their last 7 scorers, including their top 2 scoring options, will be sidelined. That has hurt their production as they’ve put up fewer than 100 points in 2 of their last 4 games and fewer than 107 in 4 of their last 5.

The Blazers are 1-3 O/U in their last 4 games as well and have scored 111 points or fewer in 3 of the 4. Ultimately, back the UNDER 230.5 (-115).
