Memphis vs Detroit: prediction for the NBA match
Grizzlies' winning streak currently consists of six matches, but Memphis doesn't want to stop on that. In most recent matches team managed to beat Brooklyn (118:104) and Cleveland (110:106).
Memphis will play the match against Detroit without a number of players. In this game Grizzlies will have to do without Dillon Brooks, Kyle Anderson and De'Anthony Melton. It is also uncertain, whether Desmond Bane will play. He performed well in recent matches.
Detroit suffered a defeat in the previous match, but it was to be expected. After victories over Milwaukee (115:106) and San Antonio (117:116) Dwane Casey's men had to slow down. Pistons put up a great offensive performance in the match against Charlotte, but failed to stop the Hornets. Pistons eventually suffered a 111:140 defeat.
In recent matches Detroit's offensive line is looking much better than before.
Pistons managed to beat the total in each of three most recent matches
Detroit failed to win the first quarter in each of three most recent matches
Despite Memphis' phenomenal form, we believe in Detroit. We think that Grizzlies will slow down now. They will have a tough schedule ahead of them. Memphis team will face two clubs from Los Angeles and Golden State. Grizzlies will probably have to play without Bane.
Taking that into account, we are expecting a resistance from the Pistons.
Our prediction - Handicap (+13,5) points for Detroit Pistons
Memphis is considered an offensive team. Detroit's offensive performance also improved. Previous head-to-head matches were high-scoring, so we offer to place a bet on total over.
Our second bet is on total over 216,5 points
