Pistons at Mavericks: Odds, lines, predictions and picks

Prediction

Mavericks 111, Pistons 105

Money line (ML)

The Mavericks (-550) should be able to push past the Pistons (+400), but risking five-and-a-half times your potential return on a team skidding as hard as Dallas is just not a good idea.

Against the spread (ATS)

The PISTONS +10.5 (-110) are catching more than five buckets from the Mavericks -10.5 (-110), who have really been stumbling lately.

And Dallas has had trouble covering big numbers, too. Dallas might win, but Detroit will likely be able to keep it within single digits in Dallas. Detroit is 3-1-1 ATS in the past five trips to Dallas, too.

Over/Under (O/U)

UNDER 218.5 (-110) is the way to go in this one. The Under is 3-0-1 in the past four games overall for the Pistons, while going 4-1-1 in their past six as an underdog.

For the Mavs, the Under has cashed in 11 of their past 13 games at home, while cashing in 20 of the past 28 games overall. And in this series, the Under is 7-3 in the past 10 meetings, including 4-1 in the past five in Big D.
