Are the Pistons Becoming Fade Material?

Reggie Jackson LeBron James

The Detroit Pistons have hit a wall for bettors as of late but will be looking to turn the ship around when they clash with the Cleveland Cavaliers at Quicken Loans Arena on Monday. The Pistons are 0-5 SU and ATS in their last five matchups – their longest losing streak of the season – while the Cavs have won five in a row, their second five-game winning streak under recently appointed head coach Tyronne Lue.

Shark Bites
  • The Pistons are 16-2 ATS in their last 18 games after losing as favorites.
  • The total has gone OVER in the Pistons' last five games with no days off between games.
  • The Cavaliers are 2-5 ATS in their last seven games as favorites.

The beleaguered Pistons are fresh off a 111-106 setback to the New Orleans Pelicans in a game where Pels’ superstar big man Anthony Davis exploded for 59 points and 20 rebounds, the top individual performance of the season by any player.

Detroit dressed only 11 players in the loss, as the squad was without Donatas Motiejunas and Marcus Thornton due to injury complications surrounding last week’s trade with the Houston Rockets.

A major reason for Detroit’s sudden losing skid is a complete breakdown on defense. The Pistons are allowing opponents to shoot 49.9 percent from the field during the aforementioned losing streak. Opposing teams have exceeded 100 points on Stan Van Gundy’s crew in nine of Detroit’s last 10 contests (an average of 105.9 points per game).
