The Detroit Pistons come into this game Saturday with the Portland Trail Blazers way undervalued. That's because they have lost seven straight games coming in, which has the betting public looking to stay away from them. The Pistons should not be catching double-digits tonight.

A closer look at the Pistons' 7-game losing streak shows that five of those seven defeats came to current playoff teams, and five were on the road. The other two were against Dallas and New Orleans by a combined 8 points, which are two Western Conference teams that are underrated in my book.

With the way the Blazers have been playing over the past month, they have no business being this heavily favored tonight. They have lost 11 of their last 16 games overall to really put themselves in a terrible position of trying to play catch-up in the playoff race. This is not a playoff team folks.

This has been a very closely-contested series in recent years. In fact, six of the last seven meetings have been decided by 7 points or less. That includes a 108-101 home victory by Detroit on November 26th in their first meeting this season. The Pistons have now won their last two meetings with the Blazers dating back to last year.

Detroit comes in well-rested having last played on Wednesday in a 97-105 loss at Golden State as an 11-point dog. That's good news considering it is 31-13 ATS when playing only its 2nd game in 5 days over the last 3 seasons. The Pistons are also 41-21 ATS after allowing 105 points or more over the last 3 seasons. Detroit is 9-2 ATS in its last 11 games vs. a team with a losing S.U. record. The Blazers are 2-10 ATS in their last 12 games vs. a team with a winning % below .400. Bet the Pistons Saturday.
