Raptors vs. Pistons Prediction & Pick
It's been another rough year for the Pistons, who are coming off a double-overtime win against the San Antonio Spurs but just haven't been able to string wins together consistently. They've won consecutive games only once all season, and that was all the way back in November.
The Raptors have battled consistency issues as well, but they're showing signs of heating up after winning three of their last four games. They've also been a solid 16-13 at home.
Detroit is just 7-21 on the road and ranks bottom-10 in both average points scored and allowed per game. Toronto isn't great offensively either (20th in scoring) but boasts one of the league's better defenses, ranking 11th in fewest points per game.
Look for that defense to carry the Raptors to an easy win on Sunday.
Prediction: Raptors 116 | Pistons 107
Raptors vs. Pistons Best Bet
Given the offensive woes of both clubs, the Under looks like the play here. Detroit has scored 105 points or less in four of its last six games, while Toronto has topped 120 points just once in its past six. This projects to be a lower-scoring game, especially with the Raptors ranking 26th in pace.
Bet: Under 226 Points (-110)
