Brett's Sunday Night NBA "Slam Dunk" Premium Game Pick

Brooklyn Nets -12.5

The Detroit Pistons will travel to the Barclays Center to take on the Brooklyn Nets and despite this being a double-digit spread, I think the clear play here is to back the Brooklyn Nets to cover.

Detroit was able to pick up their first win of the season last night against Orlando, however, this is a team that is 0-3 on the road this season with those losses coming at an average of 13.7 ppg. Detroit’s struggles have come on the offensive side of the court as the Pistons come into this game ranked just 28th in scoring offense at 97.2 ppg.

Brooklyn has had a sluggish start to their season as they come into this game with just a 3-3 record, however, the Nets finally started to look like the team we expected to see recently in a 105-98 victory over the Indiana Pacers in which Durant & Harden combined for 51 points, 19 rebounds, & 15 assists.

The Pistons are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games overall and just 1-6 ATS in their last 7 road games. The Nets are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 home games vs. a team with a losing road record.

Detroit will be on the 2nd half of a back-to-back and between the fact that they have not looked good on the road this season and that their offense is going to struggle in this one, I think the Nets pull away in the 2nd half of this one and win this one by 15+. Take Brooklyn to cover.
