Date/Time: 02-25-2019, 19:00 EDT

Spread: Detroit Pistons -3

Total: +221.5

Detroit Pistons have a 28-30 record (27-29-2 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the 7th place of the East. They have won six of their last seven matches and in their last game they won on the road against the Heat with a 119-96 score, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Blake Griffin with 25.9 ppg, adding 7.9 boards and a team high 5.3 dimes per game. He is followed by Andre Drummond with 17.5 ppg and a team high 15.1 boards per game.

Indiana Pacers have a 40-20 record (32-28 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the third place of the East. They have won eight of their last nine matches and in their last game they won on the road against the Wizards with a 119-112 score, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Victor Oladipo with 18.8 ppg, adding 5.6 boards and 5.2 dimes per game but he will miss the rest of the season with an injury. He is followed by Bojan Bogdanovic with 16.9 ppg and 4 boards per game.

In their previous meeting earlier this season the Pacers won at home with a 125-88 score. Pistons have a 17-13 home record, while the Pacers are 17-12 on the road. Pacers are better both offensively, scoring 108.6 ppg to Pistons’ 107.1 and defensively, allowing 103.2 ppg to Pistons’ 108.1. Pacers have better percentages both in field goals (47.9% to 44%) and in 3-pointers (37.4% to 34%). Pistons on the other hand are better in boards grabbed (45.4 to 43.4), while Pacers are better in dimes made (26.2 to 22.3) and both teams are almost equal in turnovers committed (13.6 to 13.8). It is going to be a close game and Vegas odds give the Pistons a -3 spread and expect them to utilize the home court advantage and beat the odds today.
