The Brooklyn Nets have dropped their last four games heading into Thursday’s ballgame against the Los Angeles Lakers. Against the Pistons, the Nets are surprisingly 4-6 in their last 10 head-to-head meetings.

Detroit Pistons Betting
The Detroit Pistons have won three of their last four games heading into Friday’s play vs. the Memphis Grizzlies behind a much better defense and the outstanding play of Derrick Rose. The former MVP did not play in the Pistons’ previous win against the Nets, so expect him to be a factor in their second match. Rose had another outstanding game in a 125-112 loss to the Grizzlies on Friday, recording 22 points and 8 assists.

Brooklyn Nets vs Detroit Pistons Betting Picks
The Nets are 2-8 and the Pistons are 4-6 in their last 10 outings. Both trying to stay in the hunt for the lower playoff seeds in the Eastern Conference, expect this ballgame to be a competitive one. Despite a five-game losing streak, Brooklyn is still the pick of most sports betting sites probably because the Pistons are missing the service of at least four rotation players.
Moneyline: Pick the Pistons at +100. I am smelling an upset win by the home team largely because of Derrick Rose’s fine play. Even without Andre Drummond, the Pistons managed to hold teams under their scoring averages in their last five games, with the exceptions of their game against Memphis.
ATS: Back the Pistons to cover the 2-point spread. An SU victory means the Pistons will get their fourth ATS win in six games.
TOTALs: Cash in on OVER at 225.5 points. The Pistons allowed the Grizzlies to score 125 points in a loss on Friday, The Nets also conceded 128 points against the Lakers in their last game. Expect a high-scoring game with little defenses, especially if Andre Drummond sits out again.
Score Prediction: 123 – 119 Pistons
