Are the Surprising Pistons Being Undervalued in Beantown Tonight?

The Boston Celtics’ 16-game winning streak may be in the rear-view mirror, but don’t tell that to them. On the heels of back-to-back wins over Orlando and Indiana, the C’s will seek to keep the new streak going against the upstart Detroit Pistons on Monday.

Xbet opened the Pistons as 6.5-point road underdogs with a total of 199.

Shark Bites
  • The Pistons are 6-2 ATS in their last eight games as underdog.
  • The Pistons are 7-1 SU in their last eight games after losing the previous game in a matchup.
  • The Pistons are 1-4 SU in their last five games against the Celtics.

Slow starts have become the norm for the Celtics, but they consistently are able to round into form when it matters the most. Kyrie Irving scored 25 points for the Celts over the Pacers in an impressive showing after halftime.

Jaylen Brown and Marcus Morris both missed Saturday’s tilt but are expected to return tonight. This is the opener of a five-game homestand and the beginning of a stretch in which Boston plays 14 of 21 at TD Garden.

The Pistons are another team that tends to fall behind early before coming back in impressive fashion. Detroit rallied from 15 points down against Oklahoma City in its last time out, coming back to escape OKC with a 99-98 win. The Pistons had six double-digit scorers and held the Thunder to just 39 second-half points.

While the Celtics have been the best bet in the NBA at 17-3-1 ATS, they’ve also become a reliable OVER wager. In Boston’s last five games, the OVER is 5-0.
