Why The Pistons Could Cover The Spread

A young roster has been bolstered by veteran Bojan Bogdanovic, who leads the team with 21.0 points per game, shooting 51.9 percent from the field. Cade Cunningham and Jaden Ivey have played like the top-five picks they both were. Cunningham ranks second in scoring with 19.9 points and leads the team with 6.0 assists per game. Ivey is third with 15.6 points and leads the team with 1.1 steals per game. Detroit has done well with limiting their own turnovers, ranking ninth in the league. Isaiah Stewart leads the team with 9.1 rebounds, also putting up 11.9 points per game to narrowly miss a double-double. While Detroit gets to the line the second most times per game, their free-throw shooting has not been good.

Detroit’s offense has suffered, ranking 23rd in the league with 110.3 points scored per game. As expected with their record, Detroit’s defense has been bad as well, ranking 28th with 117.3 points allowed per game. On the bright side, Detroit only fouls opponents 21.8 times per game, fifth in the league.

Why The Pelicans Could Cover The Spread

Williamson has also grabbed 7.1 rebounds per game, which is second on the team.  Brandon Ingram is the perfect second option, ranking second with 20.8 points per game, dishing out 4.7 assists per game, and also second on the team. Jonas Valanciunas leads the team with 9.0 rebounds and ranks fourth with 13.4 points per game. CJ McCollum leads the team with 6.0 assists and ranks third with 17.4 points per game.
