The Detroit Pistons need a win after losing five of their last six games. The Detroit Pistons are averaging 109.3 points on 46.7 percent shooting and allowing 111.5 points on 47.5 percent shooting. Derrick Rose is averaging 18.9 points and six assists while Andre Drummond is averaging 17.2 points and 15.6 rebounds.

The Raptors are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games as a favorite and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Pistons are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 home games, 3-14 ATS in their last 17 games playing on 1 days rest and 18-40-1 ATS in their last 59 games overall. The over is 6-2 in Raptors last 8 overall.

The Toronto Raptors are riding a nine-game winning streak, and they're winning their last five games by an average of 8.6 points while shooting 45.7 percent from the field. The Detroit Pistons aren't winning and aren't covering, and they're a brutal 9-15 ATS at home. The Detroit Pistons are a complete joke without Griffin and Kennard on the court. The Toronto Raptors and the small chalk almost seems too easy. I'll lay the number anyway.
