Detroit Pistons Betting

The Detroit Pistons are experiencing major issues against strong teams this season. Detroit was unable to get past Dallas Mavericks in their last game and they were forced to settle with a final score of 122-111. The Mavericks were too strong for the Pistons and now they need to deal with an equally good team. Houston is battling with the Mavericks, Clippers and Lakers in the top three positions and Detroit is the least of their concern.
