The Pistons are averaging 98.3 points and they are shooting 42.7 percent from the floor while defensively they are allowing 100.1 points and their opponents are shooting 46.1 percent. Greg Monroe leads the Pistons averaging 15.3 points and 10.3 rebounds.

The Denver Nuggets are 19-31 this season and they have lost their last four games. The Nuggets are averaging 100.6 points and they are shooting 43.2 percent while defensively they are allowing 104 points and their opponents are shooting 45.1 percent.

Denver is 7-18 on the road and 1-9 in their last 10 games.
Detroit is 5-0 against the spread in their last five home games, 4-1 against the spread against the Western Conference, and 5-1 against the spread following a loss. Denver is 3-7 against the spread following a loss, 1-5 against the spread against the Eastern Conference, and 0-4 against the spread in their last four games. The home team has covered the point spread in four of the last five meetings of these two.
The total in this one looks to be on the high side so my free pick is the under. My stronger play is on who will cover the spread and I will put that in the Premium Area as well as on the App.
