Against the Spread Best Bet: Suns @-110

It’s a little bit surprising that the Suns have more wins on the road than at home this season. They have lost 3 in a row but this is a nice spot for the visitors. With DeAndre Ayton playing well they are going to make the Pistons’ best player work.  The big problem is going to be depth but I am not sure the Pistons have much to exploit that. Devin Booker is going to enjoy putting up some big numbers in this spot. After a surprising win against Denver over the weekend the Pistons put forth a feeble effort in their recent loss to Memphis. They only scored 10 points in the 3rd quarter and as nice a story as the Grizzlies are, it is not because of their defense. This is a spot where they could rebound but they are still pretty shorthanded. Leading scorer Derrick Rose is out. Take Phoenix.

Over Under Pick: Under 220 @-110

Even a healthy Pistons are not blessed with a lot of scoring options and with No Rose, and still no Blake Griffin, we see this game going under. Reggie Jackson helps a little but unless he is on fire we will be reminded that it has been a couple of seasons since he was an impact player. I do expect a strong offensive game from the Suns but it won’t be enough to beat the market. Take the under.
