Charlotte Hornets vs Detroit Pistons prediction

The Detroit Pistons have been more competitive lately, they’re at home, and they’re playing a bad Hornets team that just traded away arguably their best player in Terry Rozier. This is a spot the Pistons should win. However, there’s no world I’m going to lay points with a team that’s 4-39 SU on the season. You can say whatever you want about the Hornets, I’m not laying chalk with the Pistons. It’s just that simple. I’m grabbing the bucket with the Hornets or passing on this game.
