BETTING TRENDS

Detroit are 1-7 SU in their last 8 games.

Detroit are 0-6 SU in their last 6 games against LA Clippers.

Detroit are 0-8 SU in their last 8 games on the road.

Detroit are 2-9 SU in their last 11 games when playing on the road against LA Clippers.

LA Clippers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 14 of LA Clippers' last 17 games.

LA Clippers are 6-3 SU in their last 9 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 7 of LA Clippers' last 9 games against Detroit.

 

Prediction

The Clippers aren't playing bad without Kawhi Leonard as they have won 6 of their last 10 games and they have a chance to get him back for this game. The Pistons continue to lose games and haven't win a game on the road yet this season. They have also struggled against the Clippers on the road losing 9 of the last 11 games in LA. Paul George and Kawhi Leonard are questionable for this game and if both play this will get ugly for the Pistons. Take the Clippers.
