Washington has been struggling of late. Injuries have revealed the lack of depth of what was thought to be a surefire playoff team. They might keep stumbling for a little while longer if some reserves do not step up in a big way.
Detroit is a quarter through its schedule and showing no signs that they can’t keep up their high level of play. They seem to me catching the Wizards at a very opportune moment in this one.
I think everyone is waiting for this group to take a stumble but they remain solid. They have won three in a row and still sit atop Central Division, perhaps the most competitive one in the NBA right now.
Two of those wins were impressive road victories over Boston and Oklahoma City, so this team is not just beating up on weaklings, though they did put up 131 points against Phoenix in their last game.
The Pistons are one of the most balanced scoring teams in the NBA with 4 players averaging between 14 and 19ppg. Tobias Harris leads the team but guards Avery Johnson and Reggie Jackson are very capable of having big games.
He is the fourth of those four players bu Andre Drummond remains a force. He leads the NBA in rebounding and his four shooting is improved. I don’t watch all of the games but that might play more into their success as it means he can be out there more
Good teams win on the road and Detroit is 6-4 away from their new arena this season. They are even better 8-2 ATS.
A healthy Washington team is a threat but right now they are anything but. John Wall is likely out another week after receiving injections to his knees and Bradley Beal took a shot to the head in the last game making him questionable for this one.
Those losses mean a lot more playing time for the likes of Tim Frazier, Jodie Meeks and others. Meeks is a score and Frazier has some speed but they are obviously not the all around All-Star level talents of those mentioned above. They need the whole team to step forward.
With their two stars unavailable this is a very ordinary team. They might be able to negate Drummond with Marcin Gortat but it is hard to find a lot of other matchups that provide advantages. They might have to wait things out until they are healthy and hope they are still in the hunt.

Free Detroit Pistons vs. Washington Wizards NBA Prediction:
With all of the injury uncertainty around the Wizards there is no line posted yet on this one. It might not be until right before game time as they wait on Beal.
A healthy Washington team would be a favorite but given the health and the form of the two clubs right now I expect Detroit to be a short fave.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Pistons ATS
I like Detroit in this favourite spot, even on the road. They can punish the Wizards on the way to an easy victory.
