The over is 5-2 in Pistons last 7 overall. The under is 4-0 in Trail Blazers last 4 home games. The Pistons are 3-1-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Portland and 7-2-1 ATS in the last 10 meetings.
The Detroit Pistons aren't winning games, but they've had a lot of recent success against the spread and they're actually winning their last five games by an average of 1.2 points. The Pistons only lose in the underdog role by an average of 4.6 points. The Portland Trail Blazers are obviously the better team here, but they've had a lot of bizarre losses this season and have lost three of their last four, some in blowout fashion. This is too many points. Give me the Pistons.
