Detroit Pistons Betting
The Detroit Pistons snapped a four-game skid with a nail-biting win over the Boston Celtics. Jerami Grant looks to be fitting in the role as their go-to scorer as he tallied 24 points, four boards, and two three-pointers. Rookie Saddiq Bey had his best game so far and he was one huge factor in the win with 17 points, seven rebounds, and five three-pointers. Derrick Rose came off the bench with 17 points while Mason Plumlee cleaned the glass with 17 rebounds. The emergence of Bey was a good sign for the team and he should be given another chance at the starting spot against Boston.
