The Pistons are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games and 16-35-2 ATS in their last 53 games following a ATS win. The Jazz are 1-9-1 ATS in their last 11 home games and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The under is 20-6 in Pistons last 26 Friday games. The over is 9-4 in Jazz last 13 home games. The under is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings in Utah and 10-4 in the last 14 meetings.

I don't want to get behind the Detroit Pistons as much as the next guy, especially in this spot where they're losing their last five games by an average of 14.2 points and losing on the road by an average of 14.1 points. However, the Utah Jazz aren't lighting the world on fire over these last two weeks, and they're a rough 8-14-1 against the spread at home this season. The Jazz are 5-12-1 against the spread as a double-digit favorite. It's Pistons and the points or pass for me here.
