The Suns are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games playing on 0 days rest and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Pistons are 20-8 ATS in their last 28 home games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 vs. Western Conference. The Suns are 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Detroit and 0-7 ATS in the last 7 meetings.
The Suns are very hard to trust on the road, as they've lost a ton of games away from home and we faded them last night and hit. The Pistons are solid defensively and will have an advantage against a Phoenix team that played last night. I'll lay the two buckets with confidence.
