The Lakers will continue their road trip as they will be in Detroit to take on the Pistons.
Both of these teams are coming off of days off on Saturday.
The Lakers started off as an 8.5 point favorite and that number is now down to 7.5. I have seen the total stay right around 209.5.
Los Angeles Lakers
Say what you want, but the Lakers have not had a great season so far. And yes, I have already heard all of the excuses as to why this team is having early struggles.
This team has lost three games in a row and they now have a record below .500 (8-9). I am not sure many people had that happening.
The Pistons are a team that the Lakers really need to beat. Given how many good teams there are in the league, you really have to take advantage when you play the bad teams.
Los Angeles has played a good amount of their season without Lebron James, who was out with an injury. He returned on Friday against the Celtics.
The Lakers went into Boston and lost by a score of 130-108 to the Celtics in the last game they played. This was a game that was close for a while and then Boston just took over.
Against the Celtics, Anthony Davis was the leading scorer with 31 points and 6 rebounds. Lebron James also had 23 points and 6 rebounds. Clearly, those guys were not enough to take down Boston.
The Pistons have really not had a great year so far and that does not come as the biggest surprise. We knew that it would take some time before this team was any good. By the looks of it now, it will take lots of time.
Detroit currently has a record of 4-11 and they sit in 14th place of the Eastern Conference. The only team in the East with a worse record than them is the Orlando Magic. That really says something about the direction of your ball club.
The conference that this team is in is loaded and they simply do not stack up to the rest of the competition. Unless things seriously change, there will not be a lot of winning associated with this team this year.
The Pistons last played on Friday where they lost to the Golden State Warriors by a score of 105-102. Even without Steph Curry, they could not beat them.
Frank Jackson was the leading scorer against the Warriors with 27 points and 2 rebounds. Cade Cunningham and Jerami Grant both added 19 points.
NBA Betting Trends:
- The Lakers are 6-14 ATS in their last 20 games.
- The total has gone over in 5 of the Laker’s last 7 games.
- The Pistons are 4-16 SU in their last 20 games.
- The Pistons are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games at home against the Lakers.
Free Los Angeles Lakers vs. Detroit Pistons NBA Prediction:
When you look at the two teams, you may not think the game will be all that competitive, but I feel that it has a chance to be.
The Pistons can build off of what they did against the Warriors on Friday. Sure, they did not win the game, but they did hang around there, which is a good sign for this bunch.
As for the Lakers, they just have to get back to their winning ways.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Pistons ATS
In this spot, I just do not trust the Lakes to cover here. Based on the rosters, they should be able to, but I am not sold on that happening in this one given how they have played.
Detroit has been a very good team ATS against the Lakers as of late and I feel that trend can continue in this one. I would not be surprised if they make this thing closer than some expect.
