Pistons Cashing Bets in Trips to Chicago

Reggie Jackson Detroit Pistons NBA

Two teams fighting for a postseason ticket in the Eastern Conference meet as the Detroit Pistons visit the Chicago Bulls Saturday evening. The Pistons, currently No. 7 in the East, are just one game up on the Bulls, who enter Saturday’s game in the No. 9 spot. When it comes to betting numbers, the Pistons have had the edge in recent meetings.

Shark Bites
  • Underdog is 13-3 ATS in the previous 16 meetings.
  • The Bulls are 5-0 ATS in their last five games versus the Central Division.
  • The total has gone UNDER in the Bulls’ last five games.

Detroit has gone 6-1 against the spread in its previous seven trips to Chicago and has gone 5-1 ATS in the past six meetings with the Bulls overall. The Pistons won the first two meetings this season 98-94 and 147-144, covering the spread in both, but dropped the most recent contest 111-101 as 3-point faves.

The Pistons have posted just a 1-2 SU record since they had a five-game winning streak snapped on March 26. They lost 98-89 to the Dallas Mavericks in their last contest and have four of their last six regular season games away from home starting tonight in Chicago.

The Bulls rebounded from a four-game losing skid with back-to-back wins entering Saturday’s action. They have an edge in that they have seven games remaining compared to Detroit’s six, but a win versus their Central Division rival will go a long way toward playoff hopes.
