Bulls at Pistons odds, lines, picks and predictions
Bulls 115, Pistons 105
PASS because I like Chicago to cover the spread but the Bulls (-230) is way out of my price range considering how much they’ve struggled recently and how good the Pistons have been playing.
For what it’s worth, Chicago is 33-7 straight up (SU) as a favorite (12-3 SU as a road favorite) while Detroit is 9-19 SU as a home underdog.
