Why The Pistons Could Cover The Spread/Win

Detroit needs to keep on the offensive end of the court, and they have a good chance to do so against the Pacers. Indiana allows the third-most points per game at 122.3 points. The Pistons need to use this to their advantage and knock down the shots they are given. Indiana will sacrifice offense for defense, so the Pistons have to do some scoring. If the Pistons can put up 115 points or more, they will cover the spread.

Why The Pacers Could Cover The Spread/Win

The Pacers should be able to put up some points against the Pistons in this game. Indiana has already scored 136, and 131 points against Detroit. The Pacers should be able to put up over 130 points again in this game. They are the highest scoring team in the NBA for a reason, and they have shown it against Detroit this season. If the Pacers can continue their scoring, they will cover the spread.

Detroit allows the fourth-most points per game this season at 122.0 points. This is not good for them as Indiana is an explosive offense. When the Pacers score over 122 points this season, they are 24-8. They have scored over 122 points 32 times this season, and this game should make 33. If Indiana scores as they have been, they will cover the spread.

Final Pistons-Pacers Prediction & Pick

I am not so sure this will be a close game. I do think it will hit the over, but the Pacers are a much better team. For that reason, I am going to take the Pacers to cover the spread in this game, even with it being so high.
