The Chicago Bulls and Detroit Pistons meet Saturday in NBA action at the Little Caesars Arena.

The Chicago Bulls look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Chicago Bulls are averaging 105.6 points on 42.9 percent shooting and allowing 107.4 points on 45.1 percent shooting. Zach LaVine is averaging 23.2 points and 4.4 rebounds while Lauri Markkanen is averaging 14.8 points and 6.9 rebounds. Wendell Carter Jr. is the third double-digit scorer and Otto Porter Jr. is grabbing 3.4 rebounds. The Chicago Bulls are shooting 34.5 percent from beyond the arc and 76.5 percent from the free throw line. The Chicago Bulls are allowing 32.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43.5 rebounds per game. The Chicago Bulls have lost four of their last six road games.

The Detroit Pistons need a win after losing five of their last eight games. The Detroit Pistons are averaging 108.9 points on 46.8 percent shooting and allowing 109.7 points on 46.6 percent shooting. Andre Drummond is averaging 17.7 points and 16.6 rebounds while Derrick Rose is averaging 16.6 points and 6.1 assists. Blake Griffin is the third double-digit scorer and Luke Kennard is dishing 4.2 assists. The Detroit Pistons are shooting 37.7 percent from beyond the arc and 74 percent from the free throw line. The Detroit Pistons are allowing 36.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43.2 rebounds per game. The Detroit Pistons have lost four of their last six home games.


The Bulls are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 road games, 4-10-1 ATS in their last 15 games playing on 2 days rest and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Pistons are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 0 days rest, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games and 12-25-1 ATS in their last 38 games overall. The over is 9-4 in Bulls last 13 Saturday games. The over is 8-3 in Pistons last 11 home games. The Bulls are 0-6 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Detroit.

I'm not laying five points with a Detroit Pistons team that's lost five of their last eight, doesn't play all that better at home, is on the end of a back to back and is still without their best player in Blake Griffin. The Chicago Bulls have been able to win games here and there and have actually won the two meetings against the Pistons this season. The Bulls are also winning their last five games by an average of five points and are 8-6 ATS on the road. Give me the points, as the Pistons shouldn't be favorites against anybody in their current situation.
