The Philadelphia 76ers are still desperate for a victory after a brutal 1-22 start to the year. The Philadelphia 76ers are averaging 90.8 points on 41.5 percent shooting and allowing 103.1 points on 44.7 percent shooting. Jahlil Okafor is averaging 16.9 points and 7.9 rebounds while Robert Covington is averaging 14 points and 6.2 rebounds. Isaiah Canaan is dishing 2.1 assists and Nerlens Noel is grabbing eight rebounds. The Philadelphia 76ers are shooting 32.7 percent from beyond the arc and 69.2 percent from the free throw line. The 76ers are coming off a Thursday loss to the Nets in which they shot 39.1 percent from the field and turned the ball over 10 times. The Philadelphia 76ers have lost 14 of their last 15 home games.
The Pistons are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 Friday games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 road games. The 76ers are 6-2-1 ATS in their last 9 games following a straight up loss and 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Pistons are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Philadelphia and 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings overall.
The Pistons aren't a great offensive team and besides a blowout loss to the Spurs backups, the 76ers haven't been THAT bad, especially against so-so teams. This probably a no play but if forced to make a pick, I'd take the points with the 76ers.
