Analysis

Detroit will certainly be motivated and I still rate Denver as an overrated team without Nikola Jokic and Paul Millsap. In fact, using all games for both teams would project Detroit by 7 points so there has actually been no adjustment at all for Denver’s injured starters. That’s perhaps because of the Pistons’ recent losing streak, which I don’t think is a sign that they’re not just as good. I think Detroit should be favored by 10 points based on my player-specific ratings and I’ll take the Pistons in a 2-Star Best Bet at -7 or less and for 1-Star up to -8.

I like the over tonight. THe over is 4-0 in Denver's last 4 games vs NBA Central. The over is also 6-0 in the Pistons last 6 games vs a team with a winning record. I expect a lot of points tonight and will be taking the over.?
