The Pistons are 6-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Phoenix and 24-8 ATS in the last 32 meetings. The under is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings in Phoenix.

I'm not trying to lay chalk with the Phoenix Suns, a team that doesn't play defense and is just 11-18 against the spread at home. However, we've been fading the Detroit Pistons left and right all season long and it continues to pay off. The Pistons can't put a complete NBA roster on the floor due to the trades and injuries, and they get blown out nightly, which includes losing their last five games by an average of 11 points. I have to lay the chalk with the Suns at home.
