Coming off a bad loss to the Boston Celtics, the Dallas Mavericks continue their run against Eastern Conference teams when they head to Detroit to take on the Pistons.
Detroit, coming off a loss to Milwaukee, will look to hand another loss to an increasingly better Mavericks team at home.
For the first half of this season, it looks like the Mavericks would go down as one of the worst teams in the league. The offense couldn’t get anything going, Dirk looked slow, and the team was getting blown out.
Fast forward to now and the Mavericks actually look respectable. The team has won six of the last nine games and are getting some stellar play from a player that was in the D-League at the beginning of the year.
After signing a 10-day contract with the Mavericks, 23-year old guard Yogi Ferrell took the court by storm and has played extremely well. In nine games with Dallas, he’s averaging 15.2 points on 46.5% shooting. Ferrell has since signed a 2-year deal with Dallas and should give the team some great play for the next couple seasons. He’s playing 34 minutes a game, which is great for a Mavs team that has a lot of veterans that need rest.
Look for Ferrell to have another solid night against the Pistons, and he’ll be a weapon that could carry this team to a win.
Sitting in 8th place in the Eastern Conference, the Detroit Pistons are hoping for a playoff push and every game counts. The Pistons will look for a couple good wins before the All-Star Break begins, and this Mavs game is an important one.
It’s been the defense that has carried this team all season. Detroit gives up 101.9 points per game, 5th best in the NBA this year.
The Pistons have a very young team and it shows on the offensive end. The team doesn’t have consistent production on offense and doesn’t score a lot. Detroit averages just 101.3 points per game, putting the team 24th in the NBA in that category.
The Pistons actually have six guys that average double figures, but no player averages more than 16 points per game. Tobias Harris is that player, averaging 16.3 points on 48.7% shooting.
Point guard Reggie Jackson is averaging 15 point per game, while center Andre Drummond averages a double-double with 14.7 points and 13.9 rebounds.
NBA Betting Trends:
- Dallas is 4-2 ATS in the last six games
- The TOTAL has gone UNDER in five of Detroit’s last six games
Free Dallas Mavericks vs. Detroit Pistons NBA Prediction:
Neither team has been especially good on offense this season, in terms of points production, so don’t expect a high-scoring affair. I like Detroit to get the win here, thanks to the team’s great defense.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: UNDER 201
With two low-scoring offenses meeting in this one, I don’t expect the OVER to hit. It’ll be close, but I like the total to go UNDER 201 in this game.
