The Charlotte Hornets and Detroit Pistons meet Monday in NBA action at the Little Caesars Arena. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Charlotte Hornets vs Detroit Pistons prediction.

Charlotte Hornets

The Charlotte Hornets have been in poor form as they've lost seven of their last nine games overall, but they will be feeling much better after routing the Nets in a 110-99 win on Saturday. Miles Bridges led the team with 24 points, 10 rebounds and four assists, Brandon Miller added 23 points with seven rebounds and three assists while Nick Richards chipped in with 15 points and 11 rebounds. As a team, the Hornets shot 54 percent from the field and 11 of 30 from the 3-point line, but this win was more about their defense as they took control of the contest in the second quarter where they held the Nets to just 17 points and then they finished strong to pull away and snap a six-game losing streak. The Hornets will meet the Grizzlies and Suns after this one.

Detroit Pistons

Meanwhile, the Detroit Pistons have been in a terrible slump as they've lost 10 of their last 12 games overall and they will be hoping to bounce back here after getting run over by the Mavericks in a 142-124 loss on Saturday. Cade Cunningham led the team with 33 points, nine rebounds and 10 assists, Simone Fontecchio added 27 points off the bench while Jaden Ivey and James Wiseman each scored 17 points. As a team, the Pistons shot 45 percent from the field and 13 of 37 from the 3-point line as they kept pace with the Mavericks in a tightly contested first half, only to get blown out in the second half where they trailed by as many as 25 points at one stage.

Charlotte Hornets vs Detroit Pistons prediction

You really couldn't back either team in this matchup with any confidence of a return, but you have to give the slight edge to the new-look Hornets who are coming into this one fresh off a big win over the Nets. The Pistons probably have the stronger lineup with Cunningham in the starting lineup and Wiseman on the bench, but I think the Hornets represent better value as the underdog in this spot.
