The Memphis Grizzlies 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 Grizzlies vs Pistons prediction.

Memphis Grizzlies

The Memphis Grizzlies have been in poor form as they've lost seven of their last eight games overall and they will be hoping to avoid a fourth straight defeat after getting trounced by the Magic in a 118-88 road win on Saturday. Jordan Goodwin led the team with 16 points and 11 rebounds off the bench, Brandon Clarke added 13 points on six of nine shooting while GG Jackson and Scottie Pippen Jr chipped in with 11 points apiece. As a team, the Grizzlies shot just 36 percent from the field and 12 of 36 from the 3-point line as they got off to a terrible start and were just always fighting a losing battle after getting outscored by 33-13 in the first quarter.

Detroit Pistons

Meanwhile, the Detroit Pistons will be feeling a little better after putting a halt to an eight-game slide with a 96-87 road win over the Wizards on Friday. Cade Cunningham led the team with 33 points, eight rebounds and seven assists, Jalen Duren added 20 points with 17 rebounds and three blocks while Jaden Ivey chipped in with 13 points, seven rebounds and five assists. As a team, the Pistons shot just 41 percent from the field and six of 24 from the 3-point line as they jumped all over the Wizards from the start, dominating the second quarter by 36-20 to open up a 19-point lead which proved enough to hold off a late charge from the Wizards. The Pistons will face the Hawks after this game.

Grizzlies vs Pistons prediction

The Grizzlies are still missing a host of players including John Konchar, Desmond Bane and Derrick Rose to name a few. The Pistons are still missing Isaiah Stewart and Simone Fontecchio, with Cade Cunningham and Marcus Sasser both listed as questionable. You couldn't back either side with any confidence these days, but even though the Pistons are coming off a rare win, they could be missing Cunningham for this one, so I'll lean with the Grizzlies here.
