San Antonio Spurs vs Detroit Pistons 10/6/2021 Betting Odds
San Antonio Spurs Betting
The San Antonio Spurs are going to field a mediocre roster with their best player being Keldon Johnson. Dejounte Murray will be there but there is not much to boast about after that. This team’s biggest acquisition in the off-season was Doug McDermott and it looks like a downgrade from having DeMar DeRozan. Aside from Derrick White and Jakob Poeltl, other players in this team are a wild card. This should be a tank season for the Spurs as they try to look for their next Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker in the next NBA draft. For now, this looks like the worst Spurs team since Gregg Popovich was named head coach.

Detroit Pistons Betting
The Detroit Pistons had rebuilt the team and they look ready to build around 2021 top overall pick, Cade Cunningham. This team will be fielding a good crop of young players including second-year players Saddiq Bey and Isaiah Stewart who are named NBA all-rookie second team last season. Killian Hayes has yet to make an impact on this team and he should be an exciting prospect to watch. Jerami Grant looks to make the NBA All-Star team this year and Kelly Olynyk was this team’s best off-season acquisition. Expect the Pistons to maximize the pre-season to break in their young roster.
