The Detroit Pistons head to Washington on Saturday to face off against the Wizards.
The Washington Wizards are right at the .500 mark this season as the Wizards are sitting at 19-19. Washington is coming off a solid win on Saturday against the Bulls, defeating Chicago 96-93 in Washington. Against the Bulls the Wizards did a nice job of spreading the ball around, having six different players finish with double digit points on the night. Leading the way for the Wizards against the Bulls on Friday was Wall, who finished the night with 23 points and 11 assists. The Wizards are playing better as of late, which is nice for Wizard fans as they definitely have had it rough in the past.

The Detroit Pistons are sitting at 16-23 this season, but the Pistons are playing pretty well as of late, winning two out of their last three. Detroit fell in their last outing, falling to the Utah Jazz on Friday 110-89. The Jazz have been playing very well as of late, and this Pistons team was no match for Utah as the Jazz had a huge first half lead and never looked back. Leading the charge for the Pistons against Utah was Trey Burke who finished the night with 20 points and 12 assists, while grabbing three boards.
The Detroit Pistons are 1-4 against the spread in their last five games on the road, and the Pistons are 1-5 against the spread in their last six games following an outright loss. The Pistons are also just 1-5 against the spread in their last six games following an ATS loss.
The Wizards are just 1-5 against the spread in their last six games at home, and the Wizards are 0-4 against the spread in their last four games at home when playing a team with a losing record on the road this season.
I have to take the under here. Both the Pistons and the Wizards are coming off tough games last night and I expect both of them to slack off a bit tonight, putting this one under the projected total.
