The Pistons are 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings in San Antonio and 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings.

The Detroit Pistons are coming off a last second win that should give this young club confidence. The San Antonio Spurs are just a mess right now, which includes losing at home by an average of 7.5 points. Backing the Spurs in the favorite role regardless of whom they play doesn't feel right. If forced to pick this game between two below average teams, I'm going to side with the Pistons.
