The Detroit Pistons continue at home and will host the Boston Celtics at the Little Caesars Arena on Monday night. These teams already faced each other twice earlier this season and they're tied 1-1.
The Pistons get here with an 14-40 record and are 7-20 at home ranking 5th in the Central division. The Pistons are 6-23 against Eastern Conference opponents. Detroit gives up 119.8 points to opponents and has been outscored by 7.3 points per game.
Bojan Bogdanovic is scoring 21.4 points per game and averaging 3.6 rebounds for the Pistons. Saddiq Bey is averaging 16.7 points and 5.5 rebounds over the last 10 games for Detroit.
In their last 10 games, the Pistons are 3-7, averaging 115.4 points, 41.2 rebounds, 24.2 assists, 8.4 steals and 4.1 blocks per game while shooting 47.7% from the field. Their opponents have averaged 120.5 points per game.
The Celtics have lost 3 of their last 5 games and are 17-9 on the road so far this season with an 37-16 record overall ranking 1st in the Atlantic Division. The Celtics are 21-11 against conference opponents. Boston scores 117.7 points while outscoring opponents by 5.8 points per game.
Tatum is scoring 30.9 points per game with 8.7 rebounds and 4.4 assists for the Celtics. Jaylen Brown is averaging 22.3 points and 5.1 rebounds while shooting 49.2% over the past 10 games for Boston.
In their last 10 games the Celtics are 6-4, averaging 114.7 points, 47.8 rebounds, 24.6 assists, 5.9 steals and 5.1 blocks per game while shooting 45.2% from the field. Their opponents have averaged 110.0 points.
Boston are 11-4 SU in their last 15 games.
Boston are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games against Detroit.
Boston are 5-1 SU in their last 6 games against Detroit.
The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Boston's last 6 games on the road.
Detroit are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games.
The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Detroit's last 5 games.
Detroit are 2-7 SU in their last 9 games.
The total has gone OVER in 4 of Detroit's last 5 games against Boston.
The Pistons continue to lose games and are ranking last in defense in the league allowing 120 points per game and they have won less games at home than on the road. The Celtics are one of the best teams in the league and are 17-9 on the road but they have failed to cover the spread in 7 of their last 8 games and are still missing Marcus Smart. The Pistons have covered the spread in 8 of the last 10 head to head games vs Boston so I think they can keep this game close enough to cover the spread.
PICK: Pistons +11 (-110)
