Standout Stats

  • Detroit is 6-2 SU and ATS in its last eight games with an average winning margin of 17.17, including a five-point overtime win vs Toronto on March 3. Additionally, the Pistons are 8-0 SU and ATS in their last eight home games with an average winning margin of 14.38. Meanwhile, Toronto is 3-3 SU and ATS in its last six with an average losing margin of 14. Detroit is 2-0 SU and ATS vs Toronto this season winning 106-104 and 112-107.
  • The OVER has been a strong play in Raptors' games recently as the total has gone OVER in five of their last seven contests, with only two going UNDER 217 points. The Pistons have split their last eight games on the total with four going OVER and four going UNDER and the same can be said about today’s total. They played to combined scores of 210 and 219 in their two meetings this season, the 219 was an overtime game.
  • The offense hasn’t been flowing well for the Pistons over their last 10 games, chipping just 108.1 ppg, while the Raptors are pouring in 112.1 ppg in their last 10. On the defensive side of the ball, Detroit has been quite stingy, restricting its foes to 104.8 ppg in its last 10 matches, the fifth-fewest in the NBA, while Toronto is allowing 109.3 ppg over the same span.
  • Both teams have elected to rely on their perimeter shooting over their last 10 games, with Toronto only getting 44.2 points in the paint per game over that span and Detroit is even worse at 41.8. However, both teams are stroking the three-ball really well recently, as Detroit is knocking down 39.5 percent of their three-point attempts and Toronto is slightly behind at 38.9 percent.
  • With Toronto and Detroit electing not to pound the ball inside, neither team is ripping that many boards both ranking in the bottom half of the league in their last 10 games in rebounds per game. That being said, the Pistons are doing a great job at limiting their counterparts’ boards per game.

My Best Bet for Toronto vs Detroit

Detroit +2

The Pistons have been rolling recently, overall and at home, while the Raptors have been flirting with mediocrity. Detroit has topped Toronto in the first two meetings in close battles and with both teams having a similar approach to the game I expect another tight contest and I’ll take the points.
