The last time these two faced off the Pistons dominated Charlotte. If the Hornets have learned their lesson from that game, this could be a low-scoring contest, leading the under to be a fine NBA pick.

I’m not sure why this total has been jumping upward from where it opened, but with these two teams against one another, it might need to start going in the opposite direction. After the odds for the total opened at 201, it is now sitting at 204 and just begging you to take the under in your NBA Picks.

Well, don’t hesitate, because, despite the Hornets playing faster lately, they will be slowed down at home against the even slower paced Pistons. Both of these teams rank in the top third of the league in defensive rating and both are an incredibly good at rebounding and keeping their opponents off the free throw line.

If those two things happen more tonight, this game is not getting into the 200 thresholds. Detroit is scoring less than 100 points per game on the road this season and after their blowout of the Hornets in their first meeting, I think Charlotte has learned from their mistakes.
