The Detroit Pistons and Memphis Grizzlies meet Friday in NBA action at the FedExForum. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Pistons vs Grizzlies prediction.

Detroit Pistons

The Detroit Pistons have been ice-cold as they’ve lost 10 of their last 11 games overall and they will be hoping to snap a two-game skid after getting beaten by the Hawks in a 121-113 road defeat on Wednesday. Malachi Flynn led the team with a career-high 50 points with six rebounds and five assists off the bench, while Jalen Duren and Marcus Sasser each scored 11 points but no other player finished in double figures in scoring. As a team, the Pistons shot 45 percent from the field and 10 of 30 from the 3-point line as they struggled to keep pace with the Hawks from the start, falling behind by as many as 22 points in the third quarter, before they finished with a flurry of points in the fourth quarter to keep the margin to single digits. The Pistons will face the Nets, 76ers, and Bulls after this game.

Memphis Grizzlies

Meanwhile, the Memphis Grizzlies have been in a real funk as they’ve lost seven of their last 10 games overall but they will be aiming for a third straight win after routing the Bucks in a 111-101 road win on Wednesday. Jaren Jackson Jr led the team with 35 points on 14 of 26 shooting, GG Jackson added 15 points with 12 rebounds while Brandon Clarke chipped in with 14 points, seven rebounds and two blocks. As a team, the Grizzlies shot 50 percent from the field and seven of 23 from the 3-point line as they did their best to stay within striking distance of the Bucks for three close quarters, before they made their move with a crucial 11-1 run in the fourth quarter to come away with the unlikely road victory.

Memphis Grizzlies Team Facts

  • The Grizzlies have won each of their last 12 games as home favorites against Central Division opponents.
  • The Grizzlies have covered the spread in each of their last seven games against Central Division opponents after winning as underdogs.
  • Each of the Grizzlies’ last seven games as home favorites against the Pistons have gone UNDER the total points line.

Detroit Pistons Team Facts

  • The Pistons have lost each of their last 11 road games against Southwest Division opponents.
  • The Pistons have covered the spread in each of their last seven road games against teams that held a losing record.
  • Each of the Pistons’ last six night games at FedExForum have gone UNDER the total points line.

Pistons vs Grizzlies prediction

The Pistons are still missing Isaiah Stewart, Cade Cunningham and Simone Fontecchio, while the Grizzlies are still without Brandon Clarke, Desmond Bane and Luke Kennard to name a few. You really couldn’t back either side with any confidence these days, but there is certainly more to like about the Grizzlies at the moment, especially after their upset win over the Bucks on Wednesday. The line is short enough for this one, so I am sticking with the Grizzlies to get the job done at home in a close one.
