Spread: Portland Trail Blazers -5

Total: +215.5

Portland Trail Blazers have a 44-27 record (40-31 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the 4th place of the West. They have won five of their last six matches and in their last game they won at home against the Mavericks with a 126-118 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Damian Lillard with 26.3 ppg, adding 4.5 boards and a team high 6.7 dimes per game. He is followed by CJ McCollum with 21.3 ppg and 4 boards per game but he is out with an injury.

Detroit Pistons have a 37-34 record (36-33-2 against the spread) so far this season currently sit in the 6th place of the East. They have won three of their last four matches and in their last game they won on the road against the Suns with a 118-98 score, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Blake Griffin with 24.6 ppg, adding 7.6 boards and a team high 5.4 dimes per game. He is followed by Andre Drummond with 17.4 ppg and a team high 15.5 boards per game.

In their two meetings last season each team won once at home (Blazers by 13 points and Pistons by 20). Blazers have a 27-9 home record, while the Pistons are 14-21 on the road. Blazers are better offensively, scoring 114.1 ppg to Pistons’ 107.6 ppg, while Pistons are better defensively, allowing 107.7 ppg to Blazers’ 110.4. Blazers have better percentages both in field goals (46.5% to 44.1%) and in 3-pointers (36% to 35%). Both teams are almost equal in dimes made (22.8 to 22.7) and in turnovers committed (13.3 to 13.5), while Blazers are better in boards grabbed (47.7 to 45.3). Blazers are the favorite at home and Vegas odds give them a -5 spread and expect them to beat the odds tonight.
