Bulls at Pistons: Odds, lines, predictions and picks

Prediction

Bulls 111, Pistons 105

Money line (ML)

The Bulls (-375) will cost you nearly four times your potential return, and that’s too expensive on the road, even against a poor Pistons (+290) side.

AVOID.

Against the spread (ATS)

The PISTONS +8.5 (-110) were dusted by the 76ers on Saturday, and they have a quick turnaround.

However, they’re 10-1 ATS across the past 11 games as an underdog of 8.5 or more points. Roll with Detroit, as they should be able to keep it within single digits.

Over/Under (O/U)

UNDER 219.5 (-110) is the play here. The Under has connected in six in a row for the Bulls while going 9-4 in their past 13 as a favorite.

The Under is 5-2-1 in the past eight home games for the Pistons, while cashing in six of the past eight as a ‘dog. The Under is also 5-2 in the past seven when working on no rest.
