Posted by: Hilbert Mayer
Detroit Pistons vs Charlotte Hornets 11/15/2019 – The string of losses is definitely going to end for one of these teams on Friday, as the Detroit Pistons travel to the “Queen City” to take on the Charlotte Hornets at the Spectrum Center. The total points have gone over in the last four games for the Pistons and as well as the last two games for the Hornets, suggesting that over seems to be the right NBA over/under pick for this game.

Detroit Pistons Betting
Blake Griffin may have already returned from a hamstring injury, but the losing trend continues for the Pistons, who dropped their third straight game in a 117-108 loss to the Miami Heat on Tuesday. Griffin, who scored 19 in his season debut against the Minnesota Timberwolves, sat out against the Heat but saw the lack of effort from his teammates on defense. The All-Star power forward and former NBA MVP Derrick Rose have expressed their unhappiness with the way the team is playing on the defensive end. The Pistons are allowing teams to score 112 points per contest – which ranks 20th in the NBA.
Players to Watch: Andre Drummond (19.9 PPG, 16.8 RPG, 3.1 APG), Blake Griffin (19.0 PPG, 7.0 RPG, 6.0 APG), Luke Kennard (18.9 PPG, 3.8 RPG, 4.2 APG)
Charlotte Hornets Betting
The Charlotte Hornets are another team trying to find their footing on both ends of the floor. Charlotte currently ranks 20th in the league in both points scored (106 points) and points allowed per game (113 points), making this team mediocre at best. Second-year guard Devonte’ Graham has been a spitfire off the bench for Charlotte as he emerged as the team leader in points and assists this season.
Players to Watch: Devonte’ Graham (18.0 PPG, 3.4 RPG, 7.3 APG), Terry Rozier (16.8 PPG, 3.9 RPG, 5.2 APG), Cody Zeller (13.2 PPG, 9.6 RPG, 1.4 APG)

Detroit Pistons vs Charlotte Hornets Betting Picks
With Blake Griffin likely to play on Friday, the Pistons opened as the 3-point NBA Moneyline favorites over the Hornets. However, Charlotte has dominated their last 10 matchups with a 7-3 SU and ATS record.
Moneyline: The Pistons might be a bad road team (1-5), but having Blake Griffin on their side should give them a little bit of edge against the Hornets, who are 2-4 at home.
ATS: Despite a 1-5 ATS record against Charlotte in the last six games, the Pistons seem to be a good bet against the spread. Without a star-level like Kemba Walker, I doubt Charlotte can go toe-to-toe with the Pistons’ tandem of Griffin and Andre Drummond all the way to the end.
TOTALs: This game will go OVER the NBA over/under totals of 218.5 points. Both in the bottom half of the NBA in terms of offensive efficiency, but over has been trending for these teams the past few games.
Score Prediction: 115-110 Pistons
