Jayson Tatum is averaging 31.2 points and 6.9 rebounds, while Jaylen Brown is averaging 25.4 points and 2.8 assists.

The Celtics are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games. The Pistons are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 0 days rest and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Saturday games. The over is 4-1 in Celtics last 5 overall. The under is 4-1 in Pistons last 5 overall. The Celtics are 0-5 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Detroit and 1-8 ATS in the last 9 meetings.

The Boston Celtics are on a role right now offensively during this winning streak, and that’s scary when going up against a Pistons side that’s not playing much defense. The Detroit Pistons are going nowhere fast, and they just allowed 128 points against the Celtics on Wednesday. Thick line for a road team on the end of a back to back, but the Pistons give me no choice. Give me the Celtics by double digits.
