Both teams are sitting in the fourth-worse and last place of the Eastern Conference respectively. The Wizards are still having hopes for the playoffs and are playing better lately, as they are 4-1 in their previous five. The Pistons are on a rebuilding season and are 1-4 in their previous five. 

The Wizards have a 21-33 record and are 28-26 against the spread and 27-27 in over/under. They are coming off a home victory against the Kings by 123-111.

The Pistons have a 16-39 record and are 29-24-2 against the spread and 27-28 in over/under. They are coming off a close defeat at home by the Clippers with a 98-100 score. Only three starters and a total of four players were in double digit scoring. Jerami Grant returned to the lineup and led the way with 28 points, making 7/7 from the charity stripe.

Pistons score 107.7 ppg and allow 111.4 ppg defensively. They have a 44.9% field goal percentage and a 35.7% 3-point percentage. Over is 3-1 in their previous four matches. 

Each team has been victorious once at home against the other this season. Detroit won with a 120-91 score and Washington with 106-92. Wizards are 4-2 against the spread in their previous six matchups. Under is 3-0 in their previous three matchups. The Wizards are 10-16 at home, while the Pistons are 7-23 on the road. I’m going to pick the Wizards today but also the under looks like a nice option if the line is too high.
