Detroit Pistons vs Indiana Pacers 11/08/2019 Betting Odds
Detroit Pistons Betting
The Pistons are coming off a dominating 122-102 win over the New York Knicks. Andre Drummond racked up 27 points, 12 rebounds, and 7 assists, while Markieff Morris recorded 22 points. Detroit also got an unlikely source of points from reserve forward Tony Snell, who stepped up in Derrick Rose’s absence and dropped 24 points.
Players to Watch: Andre Drummond (21.9 PPG, 18.6 RPG, 3.1 APG), Derrick Rose (20.8 PPG, 1.3 RPG, 6.3 APG), Luke Kennard (16.8 PPG, 3.4 RPG, 4.2 APG)
Indiana Pacers Betting
The Indiana Pacers are back in the winner’s circle after dispatching the Washington Wizards, 121-106. Seven players scored in double figures for Indiana, including T.J Warren who recorded 21 points. Goga Bitadze continued his fine play as he recorded 13 points and 3 boards. Having the rookie big man play this well in limited minutes this well is a luxury for the Pacers while they are waiting for the return of Myles Turner from an ankle injury.
Players to Watch: Malcolm Brogdon (22.2 PPG, 5.0 RPG, 9.9 APG), Domas Sabonis (20.3 PPG, 12.3 RPG, 3.3 APG), T.J. Warren (18.0 PPG, 3.4 RPG, 1.2 APG)

Detroit Pistons vs Indiana Pacers Betting Picks
The Pistons pounded and grounded the Pacers in their last two outings, scoring 119-110 win on October 23 and 96-94 squeaker on October 28. Detroit’s defense held down Indiana to just 43 percent FG shooting in those games.
Moneyline: The Pacers will finally get the victory over the Pistons in three tries. Look out for Goga Bitadze to be the difference-maker in the game.
ATS: The Pacers will have a -7.5 point handicap, opening the door for Pistons to steal an ATS win.
TOTALs: This game will go over the projected NBA over/under totals of 214.5 points. Both decent offensive teams (107 PPG), I don’t see the game falling short of the over total set.
Score Prediction: 119-115 Pacers
