The Timberwolves and star forward Kevin Love travel to Detroit tonight to take on the Detroit Pistons. Get the NBA odds at Just Bet sportsbook.
The Pistons have been in pride mode for a while as they have been eliminated from playoff contention for a while now. They are struggling this season with a record of 23-39 on the season. The Pistons are not a bad defensive team letting up just about 97 points per game, it is on the offensive end where they struggle mightily. The Pistons were blown out in their last game by the Atlanta Hawks by a score of 116-84 on Wednesday night.
From a playoffs contention point of view the Timberwolves are in the same condition as the Pistons. Although they have a pretty strong offense, 11th in the league in scoring, but their defense has been terrible all season long. They have lost a startling 11 straight game heading into the game tonight.
The Pistons have just two wins in their last eight games, however Detroit has won eight of their last 11 games at home. The Timberwolves are just 3-9-1 against the spread in their last 13 games, and Minnesota is just 1-5-1 against the spread in their last seven road games.
It is too hard to trust either of these teams with a spread type wager. This is why we are leaning towards the under in this game. The intensity level may be down with neither team having much to play for therefore we are expecting a low-scoring game with the bet at the best sports books.
