The Pistons own one of the best defenses in the game. After getting embarrassed on their home court by the Sixers and having a couple of days rest, I see them getting back on track against a banged up and offensively challenged Mavericks team.

 Detroit Pistons vs Dallas Mavericks

 

The Pistons have had almost three full days to reflect on getting blown out by the Sixers at home and now the odd have them as -5 favorites on the road in Dallas. The Mavericks are far from healthy or a strong team, but they play hard and they have guys that can beat this team.

However, the Pistons match up well with this club. They will have superior rim protection and rebounding and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope should be back tonight after going to through practice this week.

With all that in mind, I am backing the Pistons on the road here for my NBA pick. Their defense is superior to Dallas’ and after what should have been them getting their asses chewed out over the last few days by Stan Van Gundy, I think they show up tonight in Dallas ready to play.

Detroit is only 5-9 ATS on the road this season, but the odds for this one has just been growing and I am jumping on board before the number gets too high.
