The Philadelphia 76ers pay a visit to the Detroit Pistons at Little Caesars Arena on Wednesday night. Here’s a 76ers vs Pistons Prediction.

Philadelphia 76ers

The Philadelphia 76ers are starting to heat up again as they've won five of their last seven games and they will be gunning for a fourth straight victory after making light work of the Wizards in a 146-101 home win on Monday. Joel Embiid led the team with 34 points, 11 rebounds and six assists on 14 of 20 shooting, Tyrese Maxey added 24 points with six assists while Tobias Harris chipped in with 10 points and six assists. As a team, the 76ers shot a healthy 54 percent from the field and 20 of 46 from the 3-point line as they dominated right from the start, exploding for 43 points in the first quarter to storm out to an early double-digit lead which only got bigger as the 76ers just never took their foot off the gas.

Philadelphia 76ers Player Facts

  • Nicolas Batum ranks 1st in the Eastern Conference amongst qualified players for 3P% (47.9%) this season.
  • Tyrese Maxey ranks 7th amongst qualified players for three-pointers made Per Game (3.3) this season.

Detroit Pistons

Meanwhile, the Detroit Pistons have been in a world of hurt as they are now looking to put an end to an ugly 20-game losing streak after falling short against the Pacers in a 131-123 loss on Monday. Cade Cunningham led the team in scoring with 23 points, six rebounds and seven assists on 11 of 21 shooting, Ausar Thompson added 20 points on eight of 10 shooting while Jaden Ivey chipped in with 18 points off the bench. As a team, the Pistons shot a healthy 55 percent from the field and 10 of 29 from the 3-point line as they kept pace with the Pacers in a surprisingly close contest, until the fourth quarter where the Pacers pulled away.

76ers vs Pistons Prediction

The 76ers are coming into this one with plenty of momentum, especially after beating the Wizards by 45 points on Monday, while the Pistons are now on a 20-game skid after coming up short to the Pacers in their last outing. It's no surprise that the 76ers are heavily favored on the road, because it's really just about the margin of victory in this one. The line is quite hefty, but the 76ers are playing well at the moment and I don't think they'll have any troubles in this one.
