The Detroit Pistons are averaging 91 points on 33.7 percent shooting and allowing 115 points on 45.5 percent shooting. Christian Wood is averaging 19 points and eight rebounds while Andre Drummond is averaging 14 points and nine rebounds.

The Mavericks are 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 road games. The under is 8-3 in Mavericks last 11 Wednesday games and 5-1 in Mavericks last 6 road games. The Pistons are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 home games, 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 1 days rest and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The over is 8-3 in the last 11 meetings in Detroit. The under is 7-2 in the last 9 meetings.
The Dallas Mavericks just lost to a bad OKC team and didn't play a lick of defense, and now they're on the end of a back to back, which can't be good when you consider guys are still getting their feet under them. The Detroit Pistons ar at home and rested, and they should be better offensively than they were in their opener. I'll take the free points with the Pistons on their home court.
