The Pistons are in the first half of a back-to-back as the basketball betting schedule indicates since they are home against the Hawks tomorrow.
Bet on basketball trends favor the Bulls in this matchup against Detroit. The teams have split their last 10 meetings straight up but Chicago is 7-3 against the basketball odds. The Bulls have won three of the last five games in Chicago against the Pistons as bet on basketball results register. Somewhat surprisingly, this is only the second meeting of the year between the two teams as they met in December in Detroit as the Pistons won 104-98 as bet on basketball results tell us.
The Pistons have been a much better team on the road this season versus the bet on basketball pointspread than at home. Detroit is actually just over .500 on the road against the basketball odds this season. Detroit wins or loses with defense and that is another reason they struggle against the bet on basketball lines. The Pistons are in the Top 5 in defense as bet on basketball statistics show, but their offense has been terrible. Teams that have a good defense but a bad offense usually struggle to cover the bet on basketball lines and that has been the case many times with Detroit this season.
Chicago is below .500 this season at home versus the bet on basketball pointspread. The Bulls have an offense that can score on occasion but they don’t play much defense. Chicago has been a tough team to figure out for gamblers that bet on basketball. The team has talent but rarely do they play up to their potential either straight up or against the basketball betting odds.
Four of the past five meetings between the two teams have gone over the basketball betting total. In Chicago though, three of the last five games have gone under the basketball betting total.
