The Pistons are 11-1 ATS in their last 12 road games and 20-6 ATS in their last 26 games overall. The Knicks are 3-11 ATS in their last 14 home games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 5-0 in Pistons last 5 overall. The under is 4-1 in Knicks last 5 overall. The Pistons are 9-25 ATS in the last 34 meetings in New York and 1-7 ATS in the last 8 meetings.
The New York Knicks should get the benefit of the doubt at home and I guess they're the better team on paper, but this line is strange to me. The Knicks aren't good enough to be laying numbers like this, and the Detroit Pistons have a lot of young talent. The Pistons may not be a playoff team yet, but this isn't a pushover you can just give a ton of points to without getting hurt. Basically, I don't think the gap between these clubs is that large. Give me the Pistons and the points.
