Detroit Pistons at Philadelphia 76ers Overview

Detroit Pistons

The Pistons come in riding a three-game losing streak suffered at the hands of the Boston Celtics on two occasions both home and away and then the Brooklyn Nets where they fell by a point in overtime. Despite this, Detroit has covered in their last two outings overall. We have not seen the Motor City Maulers take the floor since Halloween where the aforementioned defeat was endured in New York.

Philadelphia 76ers

Contrary to the Pistons, the Sixers come into this contest on the heels of a dominant performance when they welcomed the Los Angeles Clippers to town on Thursday and handed them a 122-113 loss as 5.5-point chalk. The Sixers overall have gone 3-1 SU in their last four games.

Reasons To Avoid Detroit

After Detroit's scintillating victory against this team 11 days ago, the Pistons will look like a ripe apple with the added points here. However, there are reasons to be concerned about Detroit as a whole. Despite owning two rebound factories in Andre Drummond and Blake Griffin, the Pistons have not gained an edge on the boards against their opponents like they would like to. Against Brooklyn of all teams, the Nets went tit-for-tat with the Pistons to get the win. Overall, Detroit was outmuscled by the Philadelphia (46-48) the last time the two met, and that could be terrible news for Pistons as they have no other weapons to counter the likes of Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid.

Reasons To Back Philadelphia

In addition to the mismatch, Philadelphia has a true home court advantage here. The Sixers are undefeated at home this season, and all five of their victories came in the City of Brotherly Love. When you couple this with Detroit being just 1-2 SU outside of the Motor City, the venue of this event can be instrumental in the outcome as well.

Detroit Pistons at Philadelphia 76ers Prediction 11/03/2018

Detroit as a whole is an odd team. The Pistons own five games where they could have been 0-5 or 5-0, but the dust settled with them going 2-3 SU over games that were decided by a three-ball or less. However, when Detroit loses a game other than by these measures they fell by over 20 points. This result was attained against the Boston Celtics, a team comparable to Philadelphia certainly regarding strength and quality. This will be another game where Detroit loses by significant margins regardless of what transpired last week.
