Phoenix Suns vs Detroit Pistons Betting Picks
Three straight setbacks don’t bode well for the Phoenix Suns’ push for the playoffs. The Pistons, on the other hand, might need a little bit boost from their second unit since Derrick Rose will be out with an abdominal injury, leaving online bookmakers a bit iffy on betting on the home team.
Moneyline: Bet on the Suns at -145. Phoenix has a winning record of 9-8 against Eastern Conference opponents. Without Derrick Rose, expect the Pistons to struggle offensively in this game.
ATS: Back the Suns to cover the 2.5 point spread. The Suns are 4-6 ATS in their last 10 games but I can still see them winning by at least seven points largely because of Devin Booker.
TOTALs: Pick the UNDER at 227 points, The Suns had a 97-point stinker against the Brooklyn Nets. With almost half of their roster on the injury list, Phoenix just doesn’t have the juice to be a regular 110+ point scoring team. That can also be said on the Pistons who will miss their leading scorer.
Score Prediction: 107 – 98 Suns
