Detroit Pistons vs Phoenix Suns 2/28/2020 Betting Odds
Detroit Pistons Betting
It seems that the Detroit Pistons gave up on this season already after trading for Andre Drummond and releasing Reggie Jackson prior to the NBA All-Star Weekend. Right now, the Pistons are fourth to the last spot in the NBA Eastern Conference standings with a record of 19-41 and they have lost 7 straight games. In the past 10 games, the Pistons just won twice and their last victory was registered back on February 5 against the Phoenix Suns. This is a time for the Pistons to polish their young guns and this has been Derrick Rose’s team as he averages 18 points and 5.7 assists per game.
Players to watch: D. Rose PG 48 GP 13 GS 26.2 MIN 18 PTS 0.5 OR 1.9 DR 2.4 REB 5.7 AST 0.8 STL 0.3 BLK 2.5 TO 1 PF 2.2 AST/TO 20.77 PER
R. Jackson PG 14 GP 10 GS 27.2 MIN 14.9 PTS 0.8 OR 2.1 DR 2.9 REB 5.1 AST 0.6 STL 0.1 BLK 1.6 TO 1.5 PF 3.1 AST/TO 14.88 PER

Phoenix Suns Betting
The Phoenix Suns are have lost six of their last ten games and they are third to the last in the NBA Western Conference standings just behind the San Antonio Spurs. On paper, this team looks complete from each starter having great potential but this season, the Suns have not seemed to mix things well together. Devin Booker has been an elite talent in the league while DeAndre Ayton has shown spurts of greatness in his game. But so far, nothing much after that with Ricky Rubio seems to have hit the ceiling and Kelly Oubre has been the only help at the wing with Booker. Overall, this team needs to strengthen their bench and get some veterans in but all of those can only happen in the off-season.
Players to Watch: D. Booker SG 56 GP 56 GS 35.9 MIN 26.1 PTS 0.5 OR 3.7 DR 4.1 REB 6.5 AST 0.7 STL 0.2 BLK 3.9 TO 3 PF 1.7 AST/TO 20.16 PER
D. Ayton C 27 GP 22 GS 32.9 MIN 19.1 PTS 4.3 OR 7.9 DR 12.1 REB 2 AST 0.7 STL 1.6 BLK 2.1 TO 3.2 PF 0.9 AST/TO 21.25 PER
K. Oubre Jr. SF 56 GP 55 GS 34.5 MIN 18.7 PTS 1.2 OR 5.3 DR 6.4 REB 1.5 AST 1.3 STL 0.7 BLK 1.5 TO 3.4 PF 1 AST/TO 15.04 PER
