L.A. Lakers vs. Detroit Pistons Preview

On the season the Lakers are 8-8-1 ATS and they have an O/U record of 11-6 and the Pistons are 5-12 ATS and they have an Under record of 7-10.

This season the Pistons are 2-7 at home and the Lakers are 2-5 on the road.

In their last games the Lakers beat the Toronto Raptors 129-122 in OT and the Pistons lost to the Golden State Warriors 104-93.

The Lakers have not gotten off to a good start, to say the least, but they are coming off a HUGE win over the Toronto Raptors. Even facing a Pistons’ team that has lost 8 in a row the Lakers are still the 1-point road underdog.

While the Lakers only have 4 wins of the season they are 3-0 on the season facing teams from the Eastern Conference.

Razor Ray's Picks

The Lakers are 4-0 in their last 4 games against the Pistons and have won 9 of their last 10 facing them.

While the Lakers rank 30th in the league in opponents’ points allowed they will face a Pistons team that ranks 28th in the league in scoring and dead last in team FG%.

While the leading scorer for the Pistons is G Brandon Jennings the Lakers need to play good inside D tonight on the big man duo of Greg Monroe and Andrew Drummond. These 2 are averaging over 24 points per game and over 20 boards per game combined. Jordan Hill and Carlos Boozer have to keep these 2 from dominating in the paint.

The Pistons need to score in the paint and in the loss to Golden State they only shot 30.1% in the lane.

Kobe Bryant is coming off his 20th triple double in the win over the Raptors and while he leads the league in scoring his FG% is not good.

The Lakers are a much better team when Kobe does not have to do it all like in the Raptors’ game where every L.A. starter scoring in double figures and Nick Young came off the bench to score 20 points.

NBA Betting Trends

* L.A. is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games.
* L.A. is 6-2-1 ATS in their last 9 after scoring 100 points or more in their previous game.
* L.A. is 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games against the Pistons.
* Detroit is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall.
* Detroit is 5-18 ATS in their last 23 home games.

4* Cappers NBA Free Pick

Even beyond the trends the Lakers will win and cover in this game facing a reeling Pistons’ team that is really struggling on offense.
