I'm not laying this type of chalk with a Spurs team that's lost three straight games at home. Yes, it's only a matter of time before the Spurs get back on track, but this is a ton of points to just give the Spurs simply because they're the Spurs. The Pistons are a decent team in the East and are very well coached. I'll take my chances with double-digit free points.
