As one of the NBA’s oldest franchises, the Detroit Pistons have a rich history filled with success most notably their back-to-back championships during the “Bad Boy” era. They were home to great superstars like Isaiah Thomas and Joe Dumars and were championship contenders for most of the 2000s where they peaked as champions in 2004. But those days are long gone and the Pistons have struggled recently although their rebuilding project is finally beginning to yield positive results and bettors hope to take advantage of this.

Detroit Pistons Betting
The Pistons as a franchise have had more winning seasons than losing ones in modern NBA era. They were a powerhouse defensive team back in the earlier 2000s but ever since the Allen Iverson trade they’ve hit quite a decline and the front office frustrated fans by making costly free agent acquisitions and questionable draft choices. Lately however, the Pistons’ draft picks have been leading the team’s resurgence along with some coaching staff changes.
A team that is just starting to get turn things around can be a sly underdog bet as both oddsmakers and bettors might still have a bias towards how the team has performed in the past.
If the money line or point spread is not to your liking, you can try the totals (over/under) and bet whether the total points for the game (between both teams) goes over the line or under the line. So if the number is 220.5 for instance, both the Pistons and their opponent have to score over 221 points in total regardless who wins.
Analyzing how the Pistons do as an offense is critical to betting these over/unders. Usually high-powered offenses are a good bet to score over the totals and the Pistons have historically had successes going over. But study this against other factors before making a bet.
