Why the Pistons can cover
New Orleans has lost three of its last four games as it continues to play without Zion Williamson (hamstring) and Brandon Ingram (toe). They are combining to average more than 46 points and 12 rebounds per game, which has made their respective absences tough to overcome. New Orleans is also playing on the road for the fourth straight game, creating a difficult scheduling spot.
Detroit was able to snap a three-game losing streak with a 135-118 win against Minnesota on Wednesday, rolling to victory despite being a 6.5-point underdog. Bojan Bogdanovic returned from an injury to score 27 points, grab six rebounds and dish out four assists, while Saddiq Bey had a season-high 31 points. The Pelicans have only covered the spread twice in their last seven games.
Why the Pelicans can cover
Detroit is just one game removed from allowing a season-high 147 points in a loss to Philadelphia, and it is playing without frontcourt starters Jalen Duren (ankle) and Isaiah Stewart (shoulder). New Orleans should be able to take advantage in the paint, as Jonas Valanciunas is averaging 14.1 points and 9.5 rebounds per game. The Pelicans have the third-best record in the Western Conference, while Detroit leads the NBA in losses (33).
Star guard CJ McCollum poured in 38 points for New Orleans in its narrow loss to Boston earlier this week. He has been outstanding this month, averaging 30.8 points and 4.6 assists per game. The Pelicans have covered the spread in eight of their last 10 trips to Detroit, which has only covered four times in its last 13 games this season.
