Detroit Pistons vs Brooklyn Nets prediction

The Brooklyn Nets are on the end of a back to back, but I'm not sure if it matters when you're going up against a non-NBA team. The Detroit Pistons are putting themselves in the conversation as one of the worst teams in the history of the league, and they're 10-18 ATS despite being big underdogs nightly. I have no use for the Pistons these days. Five of the Piston's last eight losses have been decided by double-digit points. Give me the Nets in a comfortable home win.
