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

Detroit Pistons +6

The Philadelphia 76ers will travel to Little Caesars Arena to take on the Detroit Pistons and I’m going with the Pistons tonight in what I expect to be a closer came that many people expect.

Philadelphia is no doubt the better team in this one, however, I’m expecting a letdown performance from the 76ers tonight after a big win at home against the Chicago Bulls last night. Philadelphia will continue to be without some keys players in Tobias Harris & Danny Green and will be on the 2nd half of a back-to-back in which they had to travel last night. Joel Embiid was outstanding last night, however, he has been playing with a bad knee and I wouldn’t be shocked if we find out later today that they are resting their big man tonight.

Detroit certainly has had trouble scoring the basketball this season as they come into this game averaging just 95.1 ppg, however, their defense has been at least league average, ranking 15th in scoring defense. The Pistons have been better at home this season, losing to the Bulls by just 6 points to start the season and picked up their lone win against the Magic in a 110-103 victory.

The 76ers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games vs. a team with a losing straight up record while the Pistons are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 Thursday games.

Detroit was able to keep their game at Philadelphia competitive earlier this season in a 110-102 loss and as I expect the 76ers to come out flat in this one, I think Detroit does enough with the points to get the cover. Good Luck!
