Pistons are Dominating When They're Favored to Win

The Raptors have been a hard team to read since they lost Kyle Lowry for the rest of the regular season but one thing is certain – their offense has gotten much worse. Toronto has scored over 100 points just five times in 11 games but when the Raps have held their opponents under the century mark, they’ve gone 5-0 without their all-star point guard.

SHARK BITES
  • The Raptors are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games on the road and in their last 8 against the Pistons.
  • The Pistons are 10-0 SU and ATS in their last 10 games as favorite.
  • The Pistons are 7-1 SU in their last 8 games after a loss.

Detroit is one of the lowest-scoring teams in the NBA, averaging just 101.9 points per game. The Pistons have gone 0-5 in their last five games when held under 100 points so if the Raps can play the defense they’re capable of this evening, they should be able to pull off the upset as 4-point underdogs.

Being the underdog is something the Raptors are a little unfamiliar with this year. They’ve gone 4-2 ATS in their last six games as the team pegged to lose going in.

Giving up an average of just 99.37 points per game at home this season, the Pistons are pretty stingy at the Palace and considering how poor the Raps’ offense has been since the all-star break, this game could easily go UNDER its 200.5-point total.
