Detroit Pistons

The Pistons are 17-22 and 17-21-1 ATS.   Since the Detroit Pistons play in the Eastern Conference, there’s a good chance they will be in playoff contention this season. They currently have the 9th best record in the Eastern Conference and trail the Charlotte Hornets by 1 game for the 8th spot in the conference. Detroit is 17-21-1 ATS overall, 10-10 ATS after a loss, 9-9 ATS on the road and 11-12-1 ATS as an underdog.

Sacramento Kings

The Kings are 20-21 overall and 23-17-1 ATS.   The Sacramento Kings are a borderline playoff team in the Western Conference and should be able to compete for one of the last playoff spots this season. They currently have the 11th best record in the Western Conference and trail the Los Angeles Lakers by 2 games for the 8th spot in the conference. Sacramento is 23-17-1 ATS overall, 11-8-1 ATS after a loss, 13-7-1 ATS at home and 6-2 ATS as a favorite.

Kings get the win and cover at home

Both of these teams will be borderline playoff teams in their respective conferences, but neither are playing that well right now with Sacramento losing four of their last five and Detroit also losing four of their last five. The Kings are 6-2 as favorites while the Pistons are 11-12-1 ATS as underdogs. I look for both of these trends to continue with a Sacramento Kings win and cover over the Detroit Pistons on Thursday at home. Make sure to bet this match-up on BetDSI.
