The Detroit Pistons invade the United Center to do battle with the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday night.

The Detroit Pistons have been in pretty good form lately as they’ve won three of their past four games and they will be aiming for a third straight victory after blowing past the Pelicans in a 123-112 home win on Sunday. Josh Jackson led the team with 21 points on eight of 14 shooting off the bench, Mason Plumlee racked up a triple-double of 17 points with 10 rebounds and 10 assists, Delon Wright scored 17 points with six assists while Saddiq Bey chipped in with 16 points and six assists. As a team, the Pistons shot a healthy 53 percent from the field and 17 of 35 from the 3-point line as they allowed the Pelicans to explode for 40 points in the first quarter, before taking control in the second quarter where they held them to just 22 points to take the lead going into halftime. The second unit came alive in the second half as Jackson and Mykhailiuk combined for 39 points off the bench while six players finished in double figures in scoring.

Meanwhile, the Chicago Bulls have been in decent form as they’ve split their last eight games and they will be looking to build some momentum after taking down the Pacers in a 120-112 overtime road win on Monday. Zach LaVine led the team with 30 points and nine rebounds, Coby White added 19 points with eight assists while Garrett Temple chipped in with 16 points on six of 11 shooting. As a team, the Bulls shot 43 percent from the field and 13 of 33 from the 3-point line as they squandered an 11-point fourth quarter lead, before recovering in overtime where they held the Pacers to just seven points to escape with the much-needed win.

Looking at the betting trends, the Pistons are 5-0 ATS in their last five games playing on zero days' rest, 1-5-1 ATS in their last seven games against a team with a losing record and 4-1 ATS in their last five games overall. The Bulls are 2-6 ATS in their last eight home games and 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games playing on zero days' rest.

Head to head, the Pistons are 0-4 ATS in the last four meetings overall and the Pistons are 2-6 ATS in the last eight meetings in Chicago.

The Pistons will be without Blake Griffin once again as the team looks to trade him, but they've been in decent form overall and will be feeling pretty good after their win over the Pelicans on Sunday. Meanwhile, the Bulls will be looking to stay hot following their impressive comeback overtime win over the Pacers and they  are 4-0 ATS in the last four meetings overall. With that being said, I'm taking the Bulls once the line comes out.
