Detroit Pistons vs. Chicago Bulls - 12/21/19 NBA Pick, Odds & Prediction
Chicago Bulls at Detroit Pistons
Saturday, December 21, 2019 at 7:00 PM (Little Caesars Arena)
Detroit Pistons -5.5 (-103)
The Chicago Bulls go to Detroit, Michigan, to take on the Detroit Pistons on Saturday at the Little Caesars Arena. The Chicago Bulls are coming off of a thrilling victory over the Washington Wizards, that saw the Chicago Bulls win the game in overtime.
The Bulls are 10-19 on the season and are in fourth place in the Central Division. The Chicago Bulls are still struggling as of late, with the team in a rebuilding season; they are just looking to see what they have with the likes of Zach LaVine, Coby White, and Wendell Carter Jr. However, the Chicago Bulls might be without both Zach LaVine and Wendell Carter Jr. in this one due to injuries.
The Detroit Pistons are on a two-game losing streak, losing to the Toronto Raptors and the Washington Wizards Wizards, both by large margins.
The Pistons are 11-17 on the season and are dealing with back to back games, hoping to finally get some wins. It's not that the losses, or the losing streak, are all that's surprising for Detroit, it's the margin that they're losing by. The Detroit Pistons are being blown out of games, and they're going to be without Blake Griffin possibly as well as Luke Kennard. The injuries to Kennard and Griffin could drastically change how this game will go.
Chicago is 16-14 ATS this season
Under is 4-1 in Bulls last five road games vs. a team with a losing home record.
Detroit is 11-16 ATS this season
Over is 5-1 in Pistons last six home games vs. a team with a losing road record.
These teams have not had a good season this year, and are both dealing with injuries to their star players, so it will be a toss-up. Both teams should be up for this game, as this is a rare game where either team could easily take this one. However, I think the combination of Derrick Rose and Andre Drummond will be enough for the Pistons, even while they face back to back games. Final Score Prediction, Detroit Pistons win 102-97.
