NBA | Detroit Pistons at San Antonio Spurs
Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports

The Detroit Pistons and San Antonio Spurs meet Wednesday in NBA action at the AT&T Center.

The Detroit Pistons look to stay hot after winning seven of their last eight games. The Detroit Pistons are averaging 107.2 points on 44 percent shooting and allowing 108.1 points on 47 percent shooting. Blake Griffin is averaging 25.8 points and eight rebounds while Andre Drummond is averaging 17.6 points and 15.1 rebounds. Reggie Jackson is the third double-digit scorer and Luke Kennard is grabbing 2.9 rebounds. The Detroit Pistons are shooting 34.2 percent from beyond the arc and 74.2 percent from the free throw line. The Detroit Pistons are allowing 33.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.4 rebounds per game. The Detroit Pistons have won four of their last six road games.

The San Antonio Spurs could use a win after losing seven of their last eight games. The San Antonio Spurs are averaging 112.1 points on 47.6 percent shooting and allowing 111.6 points on 47 percent shooting. DeMar DeRozan is averaging 21.6 points and 6.1 assists while LaMarcus Aldridge is averaging 20.8 points and 8.9 rebounds. Rudy Gay is the third double-digit scorer and Bryn Forbes is dishing 2.2 assists. The San Antonio Spurs are shooting 40.1 percent from beyond the arc and 82.6 percent from the free throw line. The San Antonio Spurs are allowing 36.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.3 rebounds per game. The San Antonio Spurs have won their last four home games.

The Pistons are 10-3 ATS in their last 13 Wednesday games, 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a ATS win and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Spurs are 0-8 ATS in their last 8 games playing on 1 days rest, 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games and 1-10 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The Pistons are 2-6 ATS in the last 8 meetings and the favorite is 6-2 ATS in the last 8 meetings. The over is 19-7 in Spurs last 26 overall. The over is 6-0 in Pistons last 6 overall.

The Detroit Pistons are playing their best ball of the season right now where they're winning by an average of 6.2 points and shooting nearly 48 percent from the field in their last five games. It is important to note that 12 of the Pistons last 15 wins have come against losing teams. The San Antonio Spurs are piling up the losses and are fresh off a game in which they scored just 85 points. However, we knew the Spurs have been suspect on the road all year, it's at home where they're winning by an average of 6.9 points, and this will be their first home game in 24 days. While I considered the Spurs bouncing back, they haven't beaten a team by more than five points since their January 27 win over the Washington Wizards. Give me the free points with the team in better form. 

Pick:
Detroit Pistons +5
