Pacers at Pistons: Odds, lines, predictions and picks
Pistons 112, Pacers 110
Money line (ML)
The PISTONS (+125) are a solid play on their home court as the Pacers just aren’t playing very good basketball right now. Indiana has dropped four in a row, and six of the past seven. Detroit hasn’t recorded many wins, but this is its best opportunity for its first two-game win streak of the season.
Against the spread (ATS)
The PISTONS +3.5 (-115) are worth a look at home if you would like a little insurance, although they’re a much better play on the money line. Detroit has covered the spread in three of its past four games, and six of the past nine. Indiana was dropped 104-94 by the host Brooklyn Nets Wednesday for its fourth straight non-cover. The Pacers are 3-10 ATS across the past 13.
In addition, the Pacers are 0-3-1 ATS in the past four meetings in this series, and 1-5 ATS in the past six trips to the LCA.
OVER 218.5 (-115) is the lean, although a small-unit play is warranted. Indiana has hit the Under in three in a row, although the Over is 10-3 in their past 13 games against a team with a losing record. The Over is also 12-5-1 in the past 18 for the Pacers in the second end of a back-to-back set. Detroit has cashed the Over in three of the past four outings, too.
