Detroit Pistons vs Washington Wizards prediction

The Detroit Pistons are a historically bad team that’s also 16-23 ATS on the season and will be without two of their best players in Cade Cunningham and Bojan Bogdanovic. The Washington Wizards aren’t that much better but are coming off a nice blowout upset of the Hawks. The Wizards have also won 9 straight games against the Pistons and are 6-3 ATS in those games as well. Backing the Pistons isn’t what I’m looking to do, for obvious reasons. It’s Wizards or pass for me.
