Detroit Pistons vs. Washington Wizards - 12/26/19 NBA Pick, Odds & Prediction
Washington Wizards at Detroit Pistons
Thursday, December 26, 2019 at 7:00 PM (Little Caesars Arena)
The Washington Wizards go to Detroit, Michigan, to take on the Detroit Pistons on Thursday at the Little Caesars Arena. The Washington Wizards are coming off of a win over the New York Knicks, snapping a three-game losing streak they were, that also included losing to the Philadelphia 76ers that caused controversy of its own. The Wizards have had a rough month as they have only won four of their previous 16 games.
The Washington Wizards are currently 9-20 on the season. The losses will likely continue going as point guard Isaiah Thomas will be suspended for the next game due to having an incident with a fan who was heckling him, and Thomas confronted him.
The Detroit Pistons are coming off of a loss to the Philadelphia 76ers, extending their losing streak to five games straight. The Pistons allowed 35 points to Tobias Harris while also giving up a triple-double to Ben Simmons, who got 16 points, 13 rebounds, and 17 assists.
The Detroit Pistons is 11-20 on the season, currently standing at fourth in the Central Division. The Pistons have been far too inconsistent to be a contending team this year so far. The Pistons struggled to generate a productive offense and have only been able to maintain the record they do have due to having a decent defense. The Pistons should be better than what they are this season with a squad that has the likes of Derrick Rose, Andre Drummond, and Blake Griffin. However, injuries have really hindered the Pistons from being able to break out great win streaks this season.
Washington is 15-13 ATS this season
Over is 17-11-1 for the Wizards this season
Detroit is 11-19 ATS this season
Over is 17-14 for the Pistons this season
Despite being able to defeat the New York Knicks, I still think that the Washington Wizards are going to struggle without Isaiah Thomas in the lineup. I don't know how impressive a win over the New York Knicks is, and I think they'll have a harder challenge with the Detroit Pistons. I think the Pistons pull this win off due to having a good defensive game, but just barely. Final Score Prediction, Detroit Pistons win 114-106.
