Detroit Pistons vs Indiana Pacers Prediction

Following contrasting results against the title-contending Brooklyn Nets this week, the Detroit Pistons (6-18) entertain an intriguing Indiana Pacers (12-13) side hoping to snap a four-match losing streak while subsequently returning to .500 on what's been an unpredictable regular season through 25 games so far. 

Can Malcolm Brogdon and All-Star PF Domantas Sabonis enjoy more productive performances than they could away at the Barclays Center here? Or will Jerami Grant and a defiant Pistons side stifle them at home here? Read my basketball preview, for the best betting odds ahead of this compelling H2H matchup.

Detroit Pistons vs Indiana Pacers Preview

Brogdon and Sabonis combined for just 33 points on 37 shots (5-of-14 3 PM) against Brooklyn, as the Indiana Pacers were held below 100 for the second successive game - having lost at home to Utah on Sunday. 

To put those numbers into perspective, Brogdon (21.4 pts, 6.6 ast, 4 rebs) and Sabonis (20.9 pts, 11.6 rebs, 5.4 ast) were below their season averages which can happen on rare off nights, though that sets a precedent for teammates to follow. 

Their dependable C Myles Turner, a frontrunner for Defensive Player of the Year this term, had more fouls (5) than points or rebounds (three each) in 26 minutes and suddenly you can see where I'm going with this. 

They must be better against a Detroit side who relinquished some reliable shooting off the bench by trading away highly-regarded guard Derrick Rose to New York last week. 

Jerami Grant had 32 points, five rebounds and four assists as they outlasted Brooklyn 122-111 – while there were productive showings from Delon Wright, a Mason Plumlee double-double (14 pts, 12 rebs) and encouraging displays to see off the bench too: rookie SF Saddiq Bey (15 pts, 6-of-6 FG) and fourth-year SG Josh Jackson (13 pts, four rebs, two ast and steals). 

Detroit Pistons vs Indiana Pacers Betting Tips

ESPN's BPI is leaning towards Indiana in this matchup (56.8%), and understandable pick considering they're stronger on paper and just had underwhelming performances from all three of their best players last time out. 

As such, they should bounce back with an emphatic response although this is the second of a back-to-back fixture scheduling, while Grant is averaging more points (and at a higher accuracy) than Brogdon, so he could energise the hosts like Chicago's Zach LaVine did overnight. 

I'm predicting a hard-fought road win for the Pacers on this occasion with all that in mind.
