Philadelphia 76ers at Detroit Pistons Overview

Philadelphia 76ers

The Sixers enter off their second consecutive victory this season after suffering a significant defeat on the road at Boston to kick off the 2018 season. The Sixers, however, did not make their most recent win look easy as they edged out the Orlando Magic on the road by a score of 116-115 despite being favored by 12.5 points.

Detroit Pistons

The Sixers have yet to produce a cover this season but remain unscathed in the wins and losses department. The Pistons have won their two victories this season by a combined five points against both Brooklyn and Chicago.

Reasons To Avoid Detroit

Sometimes it is better to be good than lucky, and Detroit embodies that principle with the narrow wins they have earned in the early stages of the 2018 season. However, we have to look at the teams these harrowing finishes were attained against as the Bulls and Nets are on a short list for weakest teams in the Eastern Conference. Philadelphia, needless to say, is certainly a step in terms of oppositional quality, and it's hard to back them here given their performance portfolio.

Reasons To Back Philadelphia

Philadelphia was bound to be overvalued in the opening frames of the 2018 season. After all, this is a team that made a splash in 2017 and managed to get into the playoffs as a three seed after being one of the weakest teams in the East for years. Given the fact, Philadelphia has had a few games under its belt now it is safe to see that this team remains one that is primed to produce similar results here in 2018. In the case of squaring off with Detroit, Philadelphia is frankly the better team, and we are likely getting them here at a reduced price.

Philadelphia 76ers at Detroit Pistons Prediction 10/23/2018

The focal point of the Pistons is the twin towers that comprise their frontcourt in forward Blake Griffin and center Andre Drummond. While these men can out muscle virtually anyone in the paint, Philadelphia has weapons to neutralize that advantage. Guard Ben Simmons is a sniper from three-point land and an excellent facilitator to find open looks for good shooters in J.J Reddick and Robert Covington. This angle will lead to Philadelphia covering at least by a basket.
