The Pistons are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games as an underdog and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Raptors are 6-14 ATS in their last 20 home games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The under is 6-1 in Pistons last 7 overall. The over is 11-5 in Raptors last 16 overall. The over is 19-7-1 in the last 27 meetings in Toronto.

The Detroit Pistons simply aren't a good basketball team and you shouldn't be looking to back them much these days, especially on the road where they lose by an average of 7.3 points while allowing 49.3 percent shooting from the field. The Toronto Raptors are playing their best ball of the season and they beat the Pistons by 13 points back in January when they weren't playing well. The Raptors are 5-3 against the spread when favored by five or more points. Big number, but I'll lay it to avoid backing the Pistons.
