Pistons are a Great UNDER Bet at the Palace of Auburn Hills

After getting suspended one game for reportedly having a heated verbal exchange with an assistant coach, point guard Rajon Rondo will be back in the lineup for the Chicago Bulls for Tuesday’s tilt with the Detroit Pistons in the Motor City. Oddsmakers initially set the Pistons as 5-point home favorites with a total of 198.

Shark Bites
  • The Bulls are 5-1 SU and ATS in their last six games after a loss.
  • The Bulls are 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games against their division.
  • The Pistons are 13-3 SU in their last 16 games after losing as a favorite.

Detroit is also welcoming back its point guard, as Reggie Jackson made his season debut in a 98-92 loss to the lowly Orlando Magic on Sunday. Jackson finished with 18 points and four assists in 23 minutes. The 26-year-old averaged 23.5 points per game against the Bulls last season – his highest scoring average against the Eastern Conference.

Jimmy Butler is on an absolute tear right now, evidenced by the shooting guard scoring at least 20 points in a career-best 14 consecutive contests. Butler is averaging an eye-popping 25.7 points per game on 47 percent shooting through 20 games.

When the Pistons play at home, the UNDER is trending. Eight of the Pistons' last 10 have gone below the closing total in Detroit.
