Prediction

The Mavericks have been up and down this season and have lost 4 of  their last 5 games but they have dominated the Pistons as they destroyed them the last season. The Pistons are one of the worst teams in the league and have lost 8 of their last 10 games but they at least got some of their starters back in Saddiq Bey who scored 15 points in his return. The Mavericks are by far the better team but they have been awful on the road and are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games away. I'm taking the Pistons with the points.

PICK: Pistons +7.5 (-110)
