76ers at Pistons: Odds, betting lines, predictions and picks

Prediction

76ers 116, Pistons 108

Money line (ML)

76ERS (-275) is the smart play here even though, they are coming off a win last night against the Celtics. Philadelphia handled Boston in that game, but the quick turnaround is likely why the odds are suppressed some here.

An upset wouldn't be a total shock but, expect the 76ers to ultimately take care of business. Philadelphia has now won six straight games against the Pistons and has covered the spread in all six of those contests.

Against the spread (ATS)

76ERS -6.5 (-110) should hit on Saturday night as Philadelphia is 9-6-1 ATS this season and its previous three wins have been by at least eight points.

Detroit is in a huge slump right now as they have lost 17 of their last 20 games and haven't been all that competitive. They are coming off a loss against the Rockets on Friday night, but that game was a tad closer. Still, take the 76ers to win and cover in this Eastern Conference matchup.

Over/Under (O/U)

OVER 217.5 (-110) looks like a good bet on Saturday night as the 76ers are starting to get into a groove on offense. They've averaged more than 114 points per game this season and C JoelEmbiid is taking the next step as a scorer.

While Detroit is far from an elite offense, they can get to 106-108 points on a nightly basis. If they can do that in this game, the Over should have no problem hitting at all.
