Boston has been a better team on the road this season in than at home so that could point some people to consider taking the Pistons in this ESPN televised game.
NBA gambling numbers show that Detroit is 13-18-1 on the road this season. The Pistons have not done much right this season but Boston’s home record against the basketball betting odds is so poor that Detroit has a shot to cover on Monday. Paul Pierce leads the Celtics with 17.6 points per game in the two games against Detroit this season. Boston has won 7 of the last 10 against Detroit overall and they are 6-4 against the NBA gambling odds. Much of that success game on the road though as in the last three games against the Pistons in Boston, the Celtics are just 1-2 both straight up and against the spread. Seven of the last ten in this series have gone under the total.
There are not many positive betting numbers for Detroit. They have done pretty well on Monday’s though as they are 8-3 vs. the NBA gambling line in their last 11 Monday games. That is about the only thing they have done well though.
