The 76ers are 14-35-2 ATS in their last 51 road games and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games playing on 1 days rest. The Pistons are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games and 2-8-1 ATS in their last 11 Monday games. The over is 5-1 in 76ers last 6 overall. The over is 4-1 in Pistons last 5 overall. The 76ers are 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Detroit and 6-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings.
The Detroit Pistons hung around with the 76ers in the first meeting, but they were still on the losing side despite 15 turnovers and the Pistons knocking down 14 threes. The Pistons aren't a good basketball team on either end of the court and they're not a team I'm eager to get behind. Playing them the second time in three days, the 76ers should have an easier time here and cover the reasonable number.
