The Pistons face off with the Nuggets at Ball Arena in Denver on Tuesday night, with the Nuggets looking for a six-game winning streak.

Denver has looked awesome since its savvy decision to acquire Aaron Gordon from the Orlando Magic at the trade deadline. It is 8-2 over the last 10 games and have the makings of a real NBA Finals contender.

Detroit has covered in three of its last five games and continues to be a solid against-the-spread (ATS) team on the season at 27-21-2.
