Detroit Pistons Betting
The Detroit Pistons are very much NBA lottery-bound as the worst team in the NBA Eastern Conference with their record at 18-42. They only trail the Orlando Magic by half a game but the positioning right now for this team is to secure the top three places in the next draft. This team will be coming in this matchup against the Indiana Pacers on back-to-back losses. So far, the Pistons have been giving more experience to their young players such as rookies Isaiah Stewart, Saddiq Bey and even Killian Hayes. They seem to have an objective to sharpen these young athletes to be ready for next season.
