Detroit Pistons Betting

The Detroit Pistons are still one of the worst teams in the NBA Eastern Conference and they are currently tied with the Orlando Magic with the record of 19-44. This team has been juggling their roster for the past weeks thus giving their young stars a chance to shine in the big stage and getting more experience in NBA basketball. Rookies Saddiq Bey and Isaiah Stewart have been great for the team and Killian Hayes is coming along from his early season injury. Mason Plumlee and Jerami Grant have been the veteran presence of this team along with Cory Joseph who they got in free agency.

Charlotte Hornets Betting

The Charlotte Hornets are now on back-to-back losses and the Inidiana Pacers are just behind them by just a game. This team is lucky that the Pacers lost back-to-back games as well and kept that advantage over them. Nonetheless, the Hornets have found ways to keep them afloat even without star rookie LaMelo Ball and Gordon Hayward. Terry Rozier has been doing wonders for the team along with PJ Washington controlling the paint. This team needs to hold on as help is coming really soon. This should be a great chance for them to bounce-back as the Pistons are already looking at their next phase in their rebuild through the NBA lottery.
