The Chicago Bulls are averaging 104 points on 39.4 percent shooting and allowing 113.5 points on 50.9 percent shooting.

Detroit Pistons Betting Preview
The Detroit Pistons also look for a win to get above a .500 record. The Detroit Pistons will make their home debut with this game. The Detroit Pistons are averaging 106.5 points on 45.3 percent shooting and allowing 101 points on 38.9 percent shooting.

The Detroit Pistons are allowing 30 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 54 rebounds per game.
Both teams on the end of a back to back, so who knows what to expect from either side. While the Bulls are the more talented team and have actual expectations this season, they’ve been shaky offensively and already had a player’s meeting. The Detroit Pistons could easily be undefeated, as they beat the Hornets last night and had several chances to beat the Heat on Wednesday. The Bulls should win this game if they’re going to be a playoff team this season, but it’s easier to be more impressed with the Pistons through two games. Give me the home team in this toss up.
