Raptors VS Pistons Picks
In a battle between two teams riding their own respective losing streaks, only one squad will land back into the win column while the other continues to sink in the season standings. While the Raptors may be shorthanded entering tonight’s clash with the Pistons, tonight’s affair could come down to the final buzzer as it has several times in the past few meetings between these two teams.
The Raptors have lost their last two matchups, both on the road, as the injury bug continues to spread across the roster. With key players Fred VanVleet, Pascal Siakam, and Precious Achiuwa all missing in action against the Pacers in their last outting, the Raptors were thoroughly dominated by Indiana. Looking to right the ship, the Raptors have a great chance going up against a weak and inexperienced Pistons team.
Currently on a three game losing skid, wins have come at a premium for the Pistons early on this season. In the midst of a rebuild, the Pistons have several exciting young players on their roster that have shown glimpses of major upside and potential.
As they continue to build their confidence and skillsets, the Pistons will continue to grow their young talent and a battle against a well-oiled machine like the Raptors is going to serve them well moving forward.
Moneyline Pick: Toronto Raptors
While they haven’t had the best track record against the Pistons over the past few seasons, look for the Raptors to get back on track and defeat the Pistons in tonight’s showdown.
Even shorthanded the Raptors are the superior team when compared to the Pistons. With Scottie Barnes and OG Anunoby capable of leading the charge for their team and popping off for impressive stat lines, the two young stud forwards will have their fingerprints all over this game.
The Pistons also won’t be at 100% entering into tonight’s game with their undisputed top dog, Cade Cunningham out of action due to shin soreness. Without the dynamic and explosive play of the former-first overall pick in the NBA Draft, look for the Pistons to struggle to find go-to scorers and playmakers against a tough defensive team in the Raptors.
Back the favoured Raptors to snap their losing streak, maintaining their winning record and leaving Detroit victorious.
Point Spread Pick: Detroit Pistons (+4.5)
The Raptors have a terrific shot at taking the win over the Pistons in tonight’s matchup, but don’t expect this game to be one-sided, as the Pistons and Dwane Casey have tormented the Raptors since parting ways with the former Head Coach.
Since firing Dwane Casey in 2018 after the decorated play-caller captured the Coach of the Year award, the Raptors have struggled to shake the Casey curse. In the 12 games the Raptors have faced Casey and the Pistons, the Pistons have won, and covered the spread, nine times.
With such an incredible trend, we would be remiss to stray away from it. Back the Pistons and Casey to once again give the Raps a run for their money, covering the 4.5-point spread in tonight’s game.
Over/Under Pick: Over 222
Both teams have had no luck in securing wins in recent memory, but scoring the rock hasn’t been an issue. With both sides posting well over 222 total points in their last three matchups, the Over is a fantastic look when betting the point total on tonight’s game.
The Raptors are certainly looked at as a defensive-minded unit, but with several changes in personnel, look for them to flip the script and put offence on the forefront against a Pistons team that struggles to defend.
On the other side of the ball, the Pistons have several explosive athletes on their roster that have no problem finding lanes to the rim. With the Raptors without some of their top defenders, look for the Pistons to capitalize and score efficiently against the Raptors.
Look for the Over trend to continue for both teams in tonight’s tilt, bet the Over on the Raptors VS Pistons and collect a hefty payout on a high-scoring battle.

OG Anunoby Over 21.5 Points
Entering into tonight’s matchup as the number-one scoring option on the Raptors, OG Anunoby is set to have a major impact scoring the ball against the Pistons. Not just a frontrunner for Defensive Player of the Year, Anunoby has made his presence felt scoring the ball as well this season.
Currently averaging 17.2 points per game, look for Anunoby to surpass his season average and find his way to the top of the scorers sheet. In the the month of November, Anunoby has averaged 20.9 points, with two of his last three performances featuring him scoring over 25 points.
Back Anunoby to reach over 21.5 points and secure you a winning bet as a result.
Jaden Ivey Over 4.5 Rebounds
One of the most popular young players in the NBA, the hype around Jaden Ivey since being drafted by the Pistons has continued to build and has no signs of stopping as he has began to play his way into top form.
Ivey is a sensational athlete, able to move like a cheetah in transition, by rise above the rim like a condor on both sides of the court. One of the areas of his game Ivey has shown tremendous strength at has been in the rebounding department, averaging six rebounds per game in the month of November.
Playing tough along the boards, the young guard has shown no fear when walking among the trees down low, corralling several rebounds for his team and continues to be an interior irritant for his Pistons. Bet the Over on Ivey’s rebound total in this matchup and collect a solid payday while he collects ample boards on the court.
