The losses keep on piling for the Pistons who need to find answers fast. Christian Wood has been the lone bright spot and head coach Dwane Casey needs others to step up. Detroit is good for 107.3 points per contest but may need more against the 76ers. They are limiting opponents to 110.6 points per game but may need more effort against Philly this Wednesday.

Philadelphia 76ers Betting
The Sixers try to bounce back from a loss and strengthen their hold of 6th spot in the Eastern Conference. A win would allow them to jump up to 5th spot and overtake the Indiana Pacers. However, that depends on how players like Tobias Harris and Al Horford rise to the challenge. Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid remain out, a big dent in Philly’s inside game. They are playing better defensively, limiting opponents to 107.4 points per game. Facing a similarly depleted Pistons five, defense could make a big difference on Wednesday.
