Two squads from opposing conferences coming off defeats in their latest matchups are clashing today, when the Phoenix Suns (17-55), who have won only once in their last 4 games, are hosting the Detroit Pistons (36-34), who saw a winning streak end and are looking to bounce back today.

Spread: Phoenix Suns +7.5
Phoenix Suns have a 17-55 record (33-39 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the last place of the West. They have lost three of their last four matches and in their last game they lost at home against the Bulls with a 101-116 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Devin Booker with 25.5 ppg, adding 4.2 boards and a team high 6.8 dimes per game. He is followed by TJ Warren with 18 ppg and 4 boards per game he is out with an injury.
Detroit Pistons have a 36-34 record (35-33-2 against the spread) so far this season currently sit in the 6th place of the East. In their last game they saw a two-game winning streak getting snapped by losing on the road against the Cavaliers with a 119-126 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Blake Griffin with 24.7 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 15.4 boards per game.
In their previous meeting earlier this season the Pistons won at home with a 118-107 score. Suns have a 10-25 home record, while the Pistons are 13-21 on the road. Pistons are better both offensively, scoring 107.4 ppg to Suns’ 107.1 ppg and defensively, allowing 107.9 ppg to Suns’ 116.1. Suns have a better field goal percentage (45.7% to 44.1%), while Pistons have a better 3-point percentage (34.9% to 32.8%). Pistons are better in boards grabbed (45.3 to 40.4) and in turnovers committed (13.3 to 15.3), while Suns are better in dimes made (24 to 22.7). Pistons are the favorite for the win and Vegas odds give them a -7.5 spread and don’t expect them to beat the odds as the hosts will surely force a closer game than that at home.
