The Detroit Pistons play host to the Golden State Warriors at Little Caesars Arena on Friday night.

The Golden State Warriors have been on fire so far as they’ve won 13 of their first 15 games of the season and they will be aiming for a third straight victory after blowing past the Cavaliers in a 104-89 road win last night. Stephen Curry led the team with 40 points and six assists on 15 of 27 shooting, Nemanja Bjelica added 14 points off the bench while Andrew Wiggins chipped in with 12 points. As a team, the Warriors shot 49 percent from the field and 15 of 43 from the 3-point line as they struggled for most of the game and trailed by as many as 13 points, before dominating the fourth quarter by 36-8 to win comfortably in the end. Jordan Poole scored just eight points on three of 10 shooting while Draymond Green scored just four points but ended with 14 assists.

Meanwhile, the Detroit Pistons really struggled in their first nine games of the season, but they’ve won three of their past five games and will be growing in confidence after taking down the Pacers in a 97-89 home win on Wednesday. Jerami Grant led the team with 19 points, Cory Joseph added 18 points off the bench, Cade Cunningham scored 16 points with eight rebounds and six assists while Saddiq Bey chipped in with 15 points. As a team, the Pistons shot 42 percent from the field and eight of 28 from the 3-point line as they looked to be in control after squandering an 11-point lead, but they were able to clamp down defensively in the fourth quarter to hold the Pacers to just 16 points and escape with the upset win.

Looking at the betting trends, the Warriors are 4-1 ATS in their last five games playing on zero days’ rest, 9-3-1 ATS in their last 13 games against a team below .400 and 17-5-1 ATS in their last 23 games overall. The Pistons are 2-9 ATS in their last 11 games against a team with a winning record, 3-8 ATS in their last 11 home games and 6-13 ATS in their last 19 games overall.

Head to head, the under is 6-1 in the last seven meetings in Detroit, the Warriors are 1-4 ATS in the last five meetings in Detroit and the Warriors are 2-5 ATS in the last seven meetings overall.

The Warriors have been in terrific shape and their confidence must be sky-high after rallying past the Cavaliers in a big win last night, while the Pistons have really struggled to get going this season, but they’ve come to life with three wins in their last five outings. Curry is currently listed as day to day and it wouldn’t be at all surprising if the Warriors decide to rest him here, but I’m  sticking with the Warriors to stay hot with another win and cover in this spot regardless.
