Both Washington and Detroit have been starting to play better and it starts with pace for the Pistons. If these two teams get in a running match tonight, the over is easily going to cash.

  Washington Wizards vs Detroit Pistons


A remarkable thing has been happening with the Pistons’ offense over the last few games. They have won two in a row and Stan Van Gundy seems to be embracing the pace. Detroit has posted more than 100 possessions in two straight games and that is bound to help us cash a ticket on the over tonight if that continues.

Despite being only 7-13 cashing the over at home this season, the Pistons have cashed over the posted total in five of their last six home games. The reason might be this faster pace that has also hurt their defense some.

When Detroit was playing slower, their defensive rating was one of the best in the league. However, now that have lessened their effectiveness on defense by playing faster, but the offensive benefits seem to be enough. That will be tested tonight against a Wizards team potentially starting to get things together.

Washington has won four straight with quality wins over Memphis and at New York. Now they head into Detroit against a team built very similarly to them. However, that might just mean more offense. Washington is 6-2 cashing the over in their last eight road games and the biggest reason for that is they’re allowing over 108 points per game on the road. Considering the first time these two played this season the Wizards scored 122 points, add the over to your NBA Picks.
