Pistons vs. Knicks Prediction & Pick

The Knicks have lost four of their last five games and are in need of a blowout win to get momentum back in their favor. The good news is that the Pistons have been the worst team in the Eastern Conference this year, winning just 5 of their 17 games and posting an average scoring margin of -7.6.

It's worth pointing out that Jaden Ivey and Bojan Bogdanovic remain questionable to play on Tuesday night as well. Detroit could be shorthanded against a New York defense that ranks fifth in defensive efficiency on the road. Julius Randle and Mitchell Robinson present a difficult matchup down low.

New York is 10-0 straight up in its last 10 games against Detroit, so give me the Knicks here.

Final Score Prediction: Pistons: 102 | Knicks: 112

Pistons vs. Knicks Best Bet

As mentioned above, the Knicks' defense has looked much better on the road this season. However, the same thing cannot be said about their offense. New York is putting up just 108.0 points per game away from home and is shooting 42.8% from the floor. Don't expect a ton of buckets to be scored.

Detroit hasn't fared much better, averaging 108.8 points per home game. The under seems like the best bet to make, especially because it's a bet that has cashed in seven of the Knick's last eight away games. The total has also hit the under in four of Detroit's last five games at Little Caesars Arena.

Bet: Under 226 Points (-110)
