Boston Celtics at Detroit Pistons Overview

Boston Celtics

The Celtics enter into this affair on a high note, defeating the Oklahoma City Thunder on the road as a one-point favorite on Thursday night. The win was a good bounce back for the boys from Beantown after they were shocked on their own court by the pesky Orlando Magic on Monday.

Detroit Pistons

The Pistons enter off a 110-103 win against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Thursday night that saw Detroit fail to cover a high 9.5-point line. Detroit's record remains perfect so far this season despite being 1-3 ATS overall. The Pistons won their first three games this season by a combined six points.

Reasons To Back Detroit

The Pistons remain undefeated at home, and this makes them a good bet here as we get the very same team with points. Detroit's frontcourt has been a dominant force with Andre Drummond grabbing all the boards (17.8 RPG) and Blake Griffin scoring all the points (33.8 ppg). Though Boston is a physical team that plays defense, the Pistons front-court is a mismatch for pretty much any team they come across. Add in home cooking, and Detroit offers tremendous equity here.

Reasons To Avoid Boston

As we have stated previously, Boston is bound to be overvalued in the opening stages of the 2018 season. This is the team that is forecasted to win the Eastern Conference this season after making their presence known to the basketball world in the preceding campaign. Generally speaking, a team with this amount of hype and rhetoric surrounding it will be a public team on most occasions, and prone takers to inflated point spreads and overlays. This typifies one of those scenarios.

Boston Celtics at Detroit Pistons Prediction 10/27/2018

On Tuesday, the Pistons upended the Philadelphia 76ers in Motown in overtime, so this team knows it can hang with the best of the conference. This franchise is looking to a step forward in 2018, this is why they acquired Blakey, The Kid near the trade deadline last year. With Chicago remaining one of the weakest sides in the league and Cleveland taking a step back in this season, the Central Division appears to be a three-horse race between these Pistons, the Indiana Pacers, and the Milwaukee Bucks. So far, the Bucks and the Motor City Maulers have answered the call. Look for this game to serve as an opportunity for Detroit to make a statement. Pistons outright get the call.
