Phoenix vs. Detroit

1 unit on Detroit +7.5 (-115) (risk 1 to return 1.87) RESULT: WIN
The Detroit Pistons have done very little on the defensive end of the court where they are dead last in the NBA, allowing opponents to shoot better than 50% on the season. Despite those shortcomings, the Pistons have covered four of their past six and own a win vs Boston. Phoenix is off to a stellar 6-2 start but every one of the eight games they have played has been to a line within +/- 4 points of pick 'em. The Suns have had their share of close games and I don't think they pull away here on the road. All of their road games this season have been decided by six points or fewer, and I like Detroit in this one.
