Austin's Play of the Day is here for tonight's NBA slate. Let's stay hot!
@AustinsProps' NBA Friday Play of the Day - 12/30
Detroit Pistons @ Chicago Bulls
Looking at today’s NBA slate we have 9 different games to pick from. Detroit will be without Killian Hayes after being suspended for throwing a punch at Moe Wagner in the previous outing.
They will be down their starting PG however I don’t think they will actually be at much of a disadvantage with him out. Pistons likely will have more ball movement which could allow this offense to thrive even better tonight without Killian jacking up contested shots.
Chicago is in a spot similar to when we bet the Rockets +7.5 a few days prior. Yes, the Pistons likely lose this game, but I’m not laying 9 points for the Bulls. This team plays down to competition as we’ve seen all year and I think this spot we see them struggle. I think 9 points is a difficult number to win by and for that reason mainly I have to lay with the Pistons. The Bulls will also be without Alex Caruso tonight which could make their offense more isolation basketball which will make this team completely reliant on the efficiency of DeRozan, and Lavine . If these two struggle I don’t see them covering this.
Another thing to mention is Chicago is 7-9 ATS at home which shows their struggles. I think this is a perfect spot for the Pistons to battle and keep this game competitive.
Give me the Pistons +8!
DETROIT PISTONS SPREAD +8 @ -108
