Andre Drummond racked up 22 points and 21 rebounds, while Derrick Rose scored 16 points and dished out 10 assists in another poor defensive effort by the Pistons.

Chicago Bulls Betting
The Chicago Bulls have dropped three straight games and four of their first five games to open the season. Zach Lavine, who scored 16 points against the Cleveland Cavaliers, will have to get consistent point production from his teammates and better defense in order to lead the Bulls to win ballgames. Lauri Markkanen scored 16 and Wendell Carter Jr. added 15 for Chicago, who allowed the Cavs to shoot 52 percent.
Players to Watch: Zach LaVine (20.2 PPG, 3.6 RPG, 4.0 APG), Lauri Markkanen (17.4 PPG, 9.8 RPG, 2.2 APG), Wendell Carter, Jr. (13.2 PPG, 9.0 RPG, 0.4 APG)

Detroit Pistons vs Chicago Bulls Betting Picks
The Pistons have controlled their last 10 head-to-head games with their Central Division rival, winning eight out of those games with the Bulls. Detroit is averaging 111.20 PPG on 47.88% FG, while Chicago is scoring 100.00 PPG on 45.31% in those games.
Moneyline: Las Vegas betting odds opened with Chicago as -160 favorites. The Pistons (+140) will be a tough customer though as they have really dominated the reeling Bulls over the past few years. Chicago’s favorite son Derrick Rose could make things harder for the home team if he gets cleared for Friday night’s game.
ATS: The Pistons have a 7-3 ATS record in 10 head-to-head meetings with the Bulls, who will enter the game with -3.5 points handicap. Again, the Pistons have the Bulls’ numbers the past few years and seem poised to extend their mastery over their Central Division rival.
TOTALs: The O/U total for this game is set at 216.5 points. Chicago is averaging 104.25 points per game. Detroit is scoring 106.50 points per contest. These teams’ scoring outputs are pretty much in the bottom half of the league, but given that the Bulls and Pistons are two mediocre defensive squads, there’s a good chance for this game to go over.
Score Prediction: 116-110 Pistons
