Detroit Pistons 2023-24 Season
The 2023-2024 season holds promise for the Detroit Pistons as they continue their rebuilding journey. With a young and talented roster, including top draft pick Cade Cunningham, there's excitement surrounding their potential.
In the preseason, the Pistons have shown glimpses of their future potential, and fans are eager to see how their youthful core will develop. Cunningham, alongside promising players like Ausar Thompson and Isaiah Stewart, is expected to be a driving force in the team's progress.
While they might not be immediate championship contenders, the Pistons are on a trajectory to become a competitive force in the near future. The focus for this season will be player development, gaining experience, and building a winning culture.
The preseason prognostication suggests that the Pistons will improve upon their previous seasons and be a team to watch in the Eastern Conference. While challenges remain, Detroit is on the right path to reclaiming its status as a competitive franchise.
Betting on the Detroit Pistons
The Detroit Pistons may not be a strong team to be on, they are likely an interesting team to bet against. Here are some popular betting options to consider taking advantage of in the second half of the season.
- Point Spread
- Futures Odds
A moneyline bet requires a bettor to correctly pick the winner of the game. If you pick the winner of the game correctly, you will win the bet. How much you win will be determined by your wager amount and the associated moneyline for the team you bet on. Here's an example using a recent Pistons game against the Celtics.
- Celtics -720 moneyline
- Pistons +500 moneyline
Boston is the team favored to win this game, which is indicated by the minus sign (-) next to their moneyline. Detroit is the underdog denoted by the plus sign (+) next to their moneyline. The moneyline number signifies the potential payout for each team. Someone betting on Boston would have to bet $720 to win $100 whereas a bettor would win $500 with a wager of $100 on Detroit.
Users can also place a point spread wager on the Detroit Pistons. This requires a bettor to correctly select the margin of victory by a particular team, rather than simply who wins. Here's the same Pistons vs. Celtics matchup as an example.
- Celtics -12.5 (-109)
- Pistons +12.5 (-112)
Oddsmakers set a margin of victory total known as the spread. In this game, Boston has to win by 13 or more points to beat this spread and Detroit either has to win the game outright or lose by 12 points or less to beat the spread. Point spreads also have an additional element known as juice, or the vig, which is the tax paid to the sportsbook for each bet. The juice is indicated next to the point spread. This number is used to determine a wager payout. For a bet on the Celtics, a bettor would earn a profit of $100 for every $109 risked. Someone betting on Detroit would also earn a profit of $100 for every $112 risked.
Betting on over/under totals looks at the cumulative final score between two teams, not the winner or loser of the game. Bettors are required to accurately predict if the teams combine higher or lower than a number set by oddsmakers. Oddsmakers set the over/under total for Pistons vs. Celtics at 213.5 points.
- Over 213.5 points (-110)
- Under 213.5 points (-115)
Again, juice or vig comes into play with over/unders. Betting over 213.5 points means in this case that a bettor would have to wager $110 to earn $100. Betting under 123.5 points would mean a bettors would earn $100 for every $115 risked.
Pistons Prop Bets
Oddsmakers will also set lines on player statistics. Bettors then have the opportunity to guess whether those players will go over or under the set line to win money. Some popular prop bets include how many points a player will score, who will score first, how many rebounds a player gets, and many more. If you don't want to bet on the Detroit Pistons as a team, this is a great way to bet on your favorite Pistons players.
Pistons Future Odds
Futures are bets that focus on long-term outcomes, like the Pistons to make the playoffs or if Ausar Thompson will win Rookie of the Year. These outcomes will not be decided until the end of the regular season, which make them more difficult to predict. As a result, payouts are significantly higher for those bettors who correctly guess a futures outcome.
