The Detroit Pistons’ recent loss to the Charlotte Hornets, 87-76, marked another season-low for the Detroit-based NBA franchise. With Andre Drummond traded and Blake Griffin and Derrick Rose sitting because of injuries, Detroit shot just 35 percent and from the field and a macabre 20 percent beyond the three-point line. Thon Maker was the best performing Piston of that night, recording 12 points and 12 rebounds.
Players to Watch: Derrick Rose (18.5 PPG, 2.5 RPG and 5.8 APG)
Luke Kennard (15.8 PPG, 3.5 RPG, and 4.1 APG)
Reggie Jackson (15.2 PPG, 2.9 RPG and 4.7 APG)

Detroit Pistons vs Orlando Magic Betting Picks
NBA Odds are favoring the Magic to have an easy win on their home floor, and why not? The Magic just ended a three-game losing streak and the Pistons are very much undermanned following their moves at the trade deadline.
Moneyline: Bet on the Magic at -325. The Magic are 10-7 at home against Eastern Conference teams.
ATS: Pick the Magic to cover the spread. The 7.5 point NBA spread shouldn’t pose any challenge for Orlando since the Pistons’ main scorers are either traded or nursing injuries.
TOTALs: Drop bet on the UNDER at 205.5 points. The Pistons just scored season-low 76 points in their last game. The Magic tallied 135 points vs. the Hawks but it seems like a fluke to me.
Score Prediction: 103 – 92 Magic
