Key Points to Consider
Current Status: Detroit, despite still being the postseason hunt in the East, has easily been one of the more under-whelming teams this season. They have now lost 13 of 21 games at home — not a good sign considering how relatively weak the East is.
Head-to-Head: This will be the first time these two sides meet this season.
Rose Blooming: Detroit’s most under-valued player is Derrick Rose who has been solid so far this season. He is averaging a team-high 18.4 points per game and 5.8 assists per game. Most impressively, though, he is shooting close to 50 percent from beyond the arc. Quite the story for a player that looked to be on his way out due to injuries.
Betting on the Spread: Lean on the spread is for Detroit to pull out a rare home win. Detroit covers the spread more often than not in the simulations, but all indications are that this will be a very close game decided by a point or two.
Buddy Hield is projected to lead Sacramento with 22 points on 48% shooting, 6 rebounds, 3 assists and 1 steal. He’s projected to shoot 4-of-9 from beyond the arc.
Derrick Rose is projected to lead Detroit with 25 points on 57% shooting, 7 assists, 5 rebounds and 1 steal.
Detroit to cover.
Four-star (out of four) hot trend pick on the total here. The Pistons win more simulations than do the Kings, despite being slight home ‘dogs.
