Detroit Pistons vs Portland Trail Blazers 02/23/2020 Betting Odds
Detroit Pistons Betting
This was not how the Pistons wanted their season to look like at this point. They now hold a 19-39 record and they are headed to draft lottery. On the road, this team is also having a hard time getting wins as they lost 19 games in 27 contests. Over their last 10 games, they have only won twice and if it was not for the overtime win against the Denver Nuggets, this team could have been in a seven-game slump. Derrick Rose will be playing in this game and he is the only good story so far for the Pistons this season as he is showing good numbers of 18 points, 5.7 rebounds and 2.4 rebounds per game.
Players to watch: D. Rose PG 46 GP 11 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 2.3 AST/TO 21.15 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 14.87 PER

Portland Trail Blazers Betting
The Portland Trail Blazers are on a three-game slump and now they find themselves behind the Memphis Grizzlies three and a half games for the last spot of the NBA Western Conference playoff picture. Over the past ten games, this team has split their wins and losses with five apiece. If it was not for the win against Miami, the Blazers slump could have been five games. Damian Lillard will not be playing in this game so his scoring load will be heavily carried by CJ McCollum and Carmelo Anthony. They will need more players from the bench to step up if they want to get out of this losing streak and start getting into winning shape.
Players to Watch: C. McCollum SG 52 GP 52 GS 35.7 MIN 21.3 PTS 0.6 OR 3.3 DR 3.9 REB 3.8 AST 0.7 STL 0.6 BLK 1.8 TO 2.6 PF 2.1 AST/TO 16.06 PER
H. Whiteside C 51 GP 51 GS 30.8 MIN 15.7 PTS 4 OR 10.1 DR 14.1 REB 1.2 AST 0.4 STL 3 BLK 1.9 TO 3 PF 0.6 AST/TO 24.86 PER
