The Detroit Pistons and Denver Nuggets meet Monday in NBA action at the Ball Arena.

The Detroit Pistons need a win after losing six of their last eight games. The Detroit Pistons are averaging 108.4 points on 42.9 percent shooting and allowing 112.7 points on 48.1 percent shooting. Jerami Grant is averaging 23.6 points and 5.9 rebounds while Derrick Rose is averaging 14.2 points and 4.2 assists. Wayne Ellington is the third double-digit scorer and Blake Griffin is grabbing 5.7 rebounds. The Detroit Pistons are shooting 35.8 percent from beyond the arc and 78.5 percent from the free throw line. The Detroit Pistons are allowing 39.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43 rebounds per game.

The Denver Nuggets look to stay hot after winning six of their last seven games. The Denver Nuggets are averaging 116 points on 48 percent shooting and allowing 111.4 points on 47.4 percent shooting. Nikola Jokic is averaging 25.7 points and 11.7 rebounds while Jamal Murray is averaging 19.1 points and 4.4 assists. Michel Porter Jr. is the third double-digit scorer and Monte Morris is grabbing 2.2 rebounds. The Denver Nuggets are shooting 37.3 percent from beyond the arc and 76.4 percent from the free throw line. The Denver Nuggets are allowing 37.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.4 rebounds per game.


The Pistons are 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 Monday games and 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 road games. The Nuggets are 19-7 ATS in their last 26 Monday games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The over is 7-1 in Pistons last 8 road games. The over is 41-19-3 in Nuggets last 63 overall. The Pistons are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.

The Denver Nuggets are on the end of a back to back, but I'm not sure it matters at this point as they're starting to fire on all cylinders. The Detroit Pistons are a team I just can't get behind much, especially in spots like this where they lose by an average of 8.8 points on the road and are getting torched defensively over the last week. The Nuggets should have a field day offensively in this contest. I'll lay the chalk.
