NBA Odds: Pistons vs. Bulls
|Time | Channel||8 p.m. ET | NBCS-CHI|
The Pistons head to the United Center to take on the Bulls in a scheduled game to make up for the postponements of Wednesday’s original games, Hornets vs. Bulls; and Pistons vs. Mavericks.
Detroit has been on fire against the spread (ATS) lately, winning their last five games ATS and their last two games straight-up.
The Pistons have acquired whatever brief success they’ve had this season with a solid defense. But over the Pistons’ consecutive wins, they’ve held opponents to 112.0 points per 100 possessions per NBA Advanced Stats, the 14th-best Defensive Rating in the league.
Chicago has been solid as of late, though unlike Detroit, the Bulls have been an offense-first squad. The Bulls have gone 3-2 over their past five games and are coming off an overtime win over the Pacers.
The Bulls have been great ATS all year and have been quite the high-scoring team. Chicago has been 15-11 to the over this season, but have been a lot less impressive in this regard at home, where they have a 7-6 over/under record.
Our PRO Report tells us that sharp bettors have taken notice of the fact that the Bulls are not as surefire of a bet on the over are at home, and are thusly fading the over in Wednesday’s Pistons-Bulls matchup.
