Detroit Pistons vs Portland Trail Blazers prediction

I guess the Portland Trail Blazers are getting the benefit of the doubt because they're at home but backing them in the favorite role is just nuts. Yes, Cunningham and Bogdanovic are out for the Pistons, but who cares. The Portland Trail Blazers are an awful team that shouldn't be favored against anybody, and they have injury issues of their own. Also, while the Pistons aren't winning games, they've been a lot more competitive lately, and that includes covers in 8 of their last 10 games. It's Pistons and the points or pass for me.
