Detroit Pistons (+11) Spread & Under 224.5 Points
The Pistons are coming off a pretty good defensive performance in their 97-92 victory over Orlando on Saturday, holding the Magic to just 33.7% shooting from the field. Detroit is 3-2 in January, with their other victories coming at Milwaukee and against San Antonio. They have been outscored by an average of just 5.7 points this year at Little Caesars Arena, where they have won three of their last four games. Moreover, the Pistons have not lost by double digits at home since falling to Brooklyn 1116-104 in early December.
Meanwhile, Utah is shorthanded and struggling on the defensive end. The Jazz are on a two-game losing streak and are 2-2 during this five-game road trip. Defensively they have allowed 118.7 points a game as their opponents have shot 48.7% from the field since Rudy Gobert has been out due to COVID (three games). Joe Ingles, Rudy Gay, Elijah Hughes and Rudy Gay will join Gobert on the sidelines tonight.
Detroit is one of the worst offensive teams in the league, and the Pistons have recorded an effective field goal percentage of just 49% over the last five games. Meanwhile, the Pistons have been better defensively lately, particularly on the glass. Detroit has limited their opposition to an effective field goal percentage of 52.4% over the last 10 games, which is similar to what they are holding their opponents to this season at home. On average there have been 208 points produced at Little Caesars Arena this year, and there have not been 225 points scored since the Pistons hosted the Lakers on Nov. 21. The game is projected to see 216.2 points scored. OddsShopper gives the under a 55% chance of hitting and an expected ROI of 5%.
Boston Celtics Moneyline (-220)
Boston has been very inconsistent this season, but the Celtics have been much better defensively lately. The C’s have held their last 10 opponents to an effective field goal percentage of 49.8% and they have been more efficient offensively recently, compiling an effective field goal percentage of 55.1%. Plus, Boston is at home, where they have won four of its last five and are 12-8 overall. Moreover, Indiana has struggled on the defensive end during the previous 10 games, and they are just 3-15 on the road. The Pacers will again be without Caris LeVert, T.J. McConnell, T.J. Warren, Justin Anderson and Goga Bitadze. However, they may get Malcolm Brogdon, Torrey Craig and Isaiah Jackson back.

Lonnie Walker IV Under 16.5 Points
Walker exploded for a season-high 25 points in a 121-119 overtime loss to Brooklyn on Sunday. While Walker has been much more consistent scoring the basketball lately, he will garner 20 shot attempts like he did against the Nets, as the Knicks have been playing well on the defensive end. New York gives up the eighth fewest points to opposing shooting guards this year and they have been even stingier over the last three contests, allowing opposing 2-guards to connect on 41.8% of their tries and 22.0% of their 3-point attempts. Walker is projected for 13.55 points. OddsShopper gives the under a 74% chance of hitting and an expected ROI of 44%.
