Detroit Pistons at Philadelphia 76ers Overview

Detroit Pistons

The Pistons come in riding a four-game losing streak. Most recently, the Pistons were defeated at home by the New Orleans Pelicans on Sunday losing 116-108 failing to cover as a 2.5-point home underdog. Detroit has now failed to cover in each of their four previous losses.

Philadelphia 76ers

Philadelphia comes into this contest on the heels of their victory in the aforementioned meeting in Detroit with the Pistons. Overall, Philadelphia has been in stellar form as they have gone 5-1 SU in their last six matches while also posting a 3-1 ATS mark in their previous four fixtures.

Reasons To Back Detroit

The stock in Detroit is low as a whole at the moment given their overall poor form in their last four games both straight up and against the spread. When you combine this narrative with the fact that Detroit is just 4-5 SU on the road this season (losing their previous two), the Pistons are a hard sell given Philly's noteworthy home court advantage. The Pistons have also been a liability in this series, and that steers action away from Detroit. However, the fact remains that the Pistons commit fewer turnovers than their counterparts and overall play a better brand of defense both of which are essential in a game that is projected to be settled by a possession.

Reasons To Avoid Philadelphia

The 76ers have been as dominant a team at home as possible as they are an incredible 13-1 SU on their own floor. When you combine this metric with Philadelphia’s recent streak of wins and their insatiable profitability in this market as of recent, Sixers backers are set up here to likely overpay to back Philadelphia in this spot. To reflect the propensity of the premium in backing the Sixers at home as a result of Philly’s dominance in the Wells Fargo Center, the Sixers just 8-6 ATS in Philadelphia. It is not overzealous to say had Philadelphia lost in Detroit on Friday that they would actually be the dog here.

Pistons at 76ers Prediction 12/10/2018

This spot has Motor City written all over it. In Philadelphia's case, it is tough to beat the same team in back-to-back games. However, when this narrative is added into what has transpired recently in this series, this sets up a quintessential buy-low and sell-high opportunity for both teams in this market with Detroit being the benefactors. As a result, we get the benefit of getting the better team in this situation at the better price as we also get points to work with as well.
