Detroit Pistons Betting

The Detroit Pistons are on a slump losing three straight games already. They are now out of contention for any playoff berth in the NBA Eastern Conference as the team management looks to blow up the core of this roster during the off-season. So far, the resurgence of Derrick Rose has been the best story for the Pistons’ season so far and other than that, there are only a few things for this team to look forward to. The former MVP gives the team with 18.1 points and 5.6 assists per game while he is getting help from the play of Jordan McRae who does 15 points a night. Over the past ten games, the Pistons lost nine games and their only victory came against the Phoenix Suns on the road.

New York Knicks Betting

This has been another tough season for the Knicks as they are also battling issues, not just with the team, but also with the fans. The lowest attendance in the Madison Square Garden has been recorded and Spike Lee gave up on watching the Knicks games after being booted out by the management. Still, this team has some young talent to boast with Julius Randle doing 19.4 points and 9.8 rebounds a night. Rookie RJ Barrett has been struggling all season but there are a lot of upsides still in his game. He does 14.1 points, 5 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game while Bobby Portis is stepping up with 10 points per game.

Players to Watch: J. Randle PF 60 GP 60 GS 32.6 MIN 19.4 PTS 2.4 OR 7.4 DR 9.8 REB 3.2 AST 0.8 STL 0.4 BLK 3 TO 2.7 PF 1.1 AST/TO 17.43 PER
