OVER Bettors Love Seeing Raptors & Pistons Collide

The Toronto Raptors and Detroit Pistons are coming off letdown losses but have an opportunity to right the ship when the Eastern Conference foes collide on Wednesday.

MyBookie opened the Raps as 8.5-point home favorites with a total of 213.5.

Shark Bites
  • The Pistons are 1-3 SU in their last four games on the road against the Raptors.
  • The Raptors are 15-3 SU in their last 18 games with one day off between games.
  • The Pistons are 7-2-1 ATS in their last 10 games after consecutive losses.

Detroit has dropped five of its last seven games, with the latest setback coming in the form of a 118-107 loss to the Charlotte Hornets. The Pistons surrendered 68 second-half points in the contest while allowing Charlotte to shoot 51.2 percent from the field. The Pistons have yielded at least 107 points in each of their last five losses.

Toronto did all it could do in a 127-125 loss to Golden State on the weekend before falling to the Philadelphia 76ers 117-111 in a chippy affair on Monday. All-star point guard Kyle Lowry returned to action on Monday after sitting out three games with a bruised tailbone and ended up making noise for all the wrong reasons. The veteran, who shot 3-for-16 from the floor, was ejected in the final seconds after an altercation with Sixers rookie Ben Simmons.

When the Raptors and Pistons get together, the OVER is trending. The OVER is 9-3 in the last 12 meetings between the Raptors and Pistons.
