SAN ANTONIO @ DETROIT | 1/07 | 7:00 PM EST
The Spurs have played well over the past two weeks and have won their last four games. They will be playing for their fifth straight win in a row and ninth straight wins in their last 11 games. The Pistons have played bad and struggled over the past few weeks and now find themselves three games under .500. They will be trying to snap out of their recent downward trend and pick up their second win in their last three games when both teams tip off Monday night at Little Caesars Arena, Detroit, MI.
While the Pistons have played downright horribly during a 4-13 stretch, the Spurs have won eight of their last 10, including a dominating 18-point win vs. the Raptors. While the edge would appear to belong to San Antonio, my trusty projections indicate the Pistons covering the spread nearly 60 percent of the time and winning outright in more than half the simulations. Watch for the Pistons’ front-court to dominate on Monday, allowing for the cover.
PICK * DETROIT +3
