Pistons vs Magic – NBA: Game Details Summary

  • Detroit 15-44 overall: +6.5 (bet365)
  • Pistons' moneyline betting odds: +215
  • Orlando 24-35 overall: -6.5 (bet365)

The Detroit Pistons will enter the game with an overall record of 15-44 on the season. This is a team that is no longer in serious consideration for even the play-in tournament. They went just 4-14 in their last 18 games and it’s hard to see how the break will have helped them: injuries were never really the problem with this team. With just a 7-23 record on the road this season, it’s hard to picture them beating Orlando in this upcoming game.

Detroit Pistons: Recent Form Alert

  • Detroit Pistons were 11-30 (January 5th, 2023)
  • Heading into this game they are 15-44
  • Detroit is 4-14 in its last 18 games

The Orlando Magic are 24-35 on the season. While that’s none too impressive, the Magic have posted a winning record over the last month, going 7-6 since January 21st. They have been underrated for most of the season, noting that they have already won more games this season than most would have projected. While hardly an NBA juggernaut, Orlando looms large when paired opposite to teams like Detroit, Houston, San Antonio, and Charlotte.

With a healthy lineup, bettors should have confidence in this game. The Magic are -260 (5/13) to win but could be placed shorter than that for true odds. Accordingly, our recommendation is to go with the Magic in this game, a team that should be heavy favorites.
