Prediction

Bulls 115, Pistons 105

Money line

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.
