The Hornets, who defeated the Pistons in two tight matchups on their home arena and eight straight games overall, will still come into Friday’s ballgame as 8- point NBA betting underdogs to the Pistons.

The Detroit Pistons finally got a big game from Blake Griffin, who scored 26 points on 9- for-21 shooting. Andre Drummond also had a super performance with 14 points, 21 rebounds, and 7 assists. And yet, Detroit still fell a bucket short of winning and ending their losing skid against the Hornets.

Charlotte Hornets vs Detroit Pistons Betting Picks
Online bookmakers must be thinking that the Pistons will be a much better squad on their home turf, so they allotted an extra 8 points to the underdog Hornets. That is risky and at the same smart move for them since more bettors will definitely pick Charlotte in NBA spread betting as this team has been undefeated in eight matchups with the home team.
Moneyline: Again, the Hornets are whooping 8-0 against the Pistons in their last eight matchups. No longer with Kemba Walker, Charlotte still finds a way to beat Detroit with their tough defense and the emergence of Devonte Graham this season. My wild pick is still Charlotte because it seems to me they just know how to counter Pistons in every facet of the game.
ATS: While I have doubts on my Moneyline pick, I am much more confident picking the Hornets to cover the 8-point spread. For a team that defeated the other and enter the game with an 8-point edge, you have to pick the Hornets in this one.
TOTALs: The total opened at 214 points. The Pistons and Hornets combined for 215 points in Game 1 and 203 points in Game 2, indicating another low-scoring affair in the third game of their reg-season series.
Score Prediction: 105-100 Hornets
