The Detroit Pistons (7-17) make their first visit to Brooklyn to take on the Nets (12-9) Friday night at 7:30ET. NBA odds are listed at Oddsmaker sportsbook.
The Pistons have slumped lately, having lost their last two games, four of their past five, and six of their last eight. For the season, they are 7-17 SU and 10-14 ATS. Of late, their defense has fallen apart too, having allowed over 100 points in four of their last five games.
Brooklyn snapped a five game losing streak with a win at Toronto earlier this week. For the season, they are 12-9 SU and 11-8-2 ATS. It has been a tale of two seasons thus far, as their fast start is now distant memory. They are still talented and could be poised to take off again.
Brooklyn is an 8 ½ point favorite. For as bad as Brooklyn has played lately, Detroit has looked like that for a while. Brooklyn will turn it around, take the Nets -8 ½ at best online sportsbooks.
