Detroit Pistons Betting

Amidst the trade talks, Andre Drummond dominated the Warriors as he had 14 points, 18 rebounds, three steals and two blocks during the Pistons’ win. Derrick Rose led the team with 22 points while Sekou Doumbouya continues to impress as he finished with a double-double with 16 points and 10 rebounds. Svi Mykhaiulik and Bruce Brown finished with 14 points each as well. Against the Lakers, they are still missing Blake Griffin and Luke Kennard and it will take something special or a very bad outing from the Lakers for them to have a chance on taking this game.

Los Angeles Lakers Betting

Anthony Davis just dominated in their previous game as he poured 46 points, 13 rebounds and 3 steals over his previous team, New Orleans Pelicans. He never missed from the free-throw line doing 13-for-13 while he sank three three-pointers as well. LeBron James controlled the floor with 17 points and 15 assists but it was Danny Green that erupted with 25 points and most of them came in the first quarter. It was a dominating game for the Lakers and they evened out their four-game losing streak with a four-game winning streak. Lakers are back in form and it is just hard to imagine them losing to the struggling Pistons at home. There are just too many weapons for the Pistons to handle in this game.
