The under is 9-4-1 in the last 14 meetings.

I don't want to back the Detroit Pistons as much as the next guy, but I'm not laying double-digit chalk with the Nuggets. The Denver Nuggets have been hit or miss all season long, and they only win at home by an average of 3.9 points. The Nuggets are 9-12 against the spread at home, and this will be just the third time this season they're double-digit favorites. These Nuggets aren't what they've been in past years. It's the Pistons and the points or pass for me.
