Pistons vs. Grizzlies Prediction & Pick

The Grizzlies continue to be without guard Desmond Bane, who has been out since early November with a toe issue. The team has gone just 4-5 in his absence but will face a lifeless Detroit Pistons squad dealing with the lengthy injury to point guard Cade Cunningham.

Other playmakers have stepped up since Bane went down. Dillon Brooks and Jaren Jackson are both averaging at least 19.0 points per game since Nov. 11, and Ja Morant continues to dominate opposing defenses at 27.3 points per game in that span.

The Grizzlies have too much talent and will take care of business.

Final Score Prediction: Pistons: 105 | Grizzlies: 117

Pistons vs. Grizzlies Best Bet

Memphis' offense hums when they win. They've scored at least 115 points in 10 of their 13 wins this year, and I expect another prime performance on Sunday. Detroit ranks 29th of 30 NBA teams in defensive rating while allowing teams to score nearly 49% of their tries.

This game will get out of hand quickly and it's time to smash that 6.5-point spread before it grows closer to tip-off.

Bet: Memphis Grizzlies -6.5 (-106)
