The Detroit Pistons aren’t winning and aren’t covering numbers despite being underdogs on a nightly basis. The Boston Celtics have been one of the more consistent teams at both ends of the floor, and the defensive effort should improve. Thick line, but there’s a clear gap between these clubs, and the Pistons aren’t covering numbers. It’s the chalk with the Celtics or pass for me.
