Detroit Pistons Betting

The Detroit Pistons seized the opportunity to win the game against the Wizards with Beal getting injured in the process. They snapped a five-game winning streak thanks to Christian Wood stepping up from the bench with 22 points and seven rebounds. Blake Griffin and Andre Drumond each had 14 points and grabbed more than 10 boards. A total of 8 Piston players scored in double-figures and they entered this game without shooter Luke Kennard. The Pistons are currently thin at the guard rotation but Tim Frazier and Svi Mykhailiuk filled in the positions in the absence of Kennard and Reggie Jackson.

San Antonio Spurs Betting

The San Antonio Spurs fell short to a returning Luka Doncic Mavericks team, 98-102. Prior to that they blew away the Grizzlies by 30 points and managed to finish the game with 145 points. Demar DeRozan led the team with 21 points and LaMarcus Aldridge had scored 17. Rudy Gay came off the bench with 18 points but they lacked scoring from Brian Forbes and Dejounte Murray. The two starter guards just finished with 11 points. Against the Pistons, they match up really well but they need to outsmart Drummond and Griffin with the boards. If they manage to limit the two players’ production plus locking in the three-point shooting of the Pistons, the Spurs should win this game.
