BETTING TRENDS

Atlanta are 5-2 SU in their last 7 games.

Atlanta are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games on the road.

Detroit are 6-0-1 ATS in their last 7 games.

Detroit are 2-6 SU in their last 8 games at home.

Prediction

Surprisingly the Pistons have covered the spread in 6 of their last 7 games but they still have a bad record at home. Atlanta is clearly the better team but has struggled on the road. Both teams have been involved on high socring games and the total has gone over in 5 of the last 6 head to head, in 5 of Atlanta's last 7 games and in 3 of Detroit's last 5 games. Over is the play.
