The home team is 9-3 ATS in the last 12 meetings. The Pistons have a losing record on the season, but out of their 9 games the Pistons have played, they have played the Pacers twice already. The Pistons are 2-0 against the Pacers this season and have dominated inside the paint against the Pacers. The Pistons will be without Derrick Rose and Reggie Jackson. The Pacers will be without Jeremy Lamb. Even with the Pistons missing their two point guards, I'm still going to take the Pistons. Being 7.5 point underdogs seems a little extreme for a team that has won twice against the Pacers already. Final score prediction, Pacers win and the Pistons cover, 109-106.
