Detroit Pistons Betting

The BetUS sportsbook has NBA odds available for the Detroit Pistons. You can use the deposit bonuses you acquire when joining for all of your online betting needs from betting on live games to betting on Detroit with the sportsbook’s basketball futures.

The Pistons often pay generous odds with bookmakers, so bettors can make plenty of money via their NBA conference odds and NBA Championship odds. There are also a wealth of NBA game props to bet on throughout the year

Detroit Pistons Betting Outlook

  • Championship Odds: +40000
  • Conference Odds: +20000
  • Division Odds: +17500

The Pistons are expected to finish close to the bottom of the Eastern Conference, so there hasn’t been much money for them.

They are the despised outsiders to win the NBA Championship, and although every team has a statistical chance of winning, Detroit would be the biggest upset of all-time.

Surprisingly, despite being at longer odds than the Cleveland Cavaliers to win the Eastern Conference, they are both quoted at +17500 to win the Central Division.

We love their drafting class, which includes top pick Cade Cunningham and Luka Garza. We thought Garza was a steal at No. 52, so we expect his role to increase with more experience.

Bettors will find opportunities to bet on Detroit at value odds, but it would take a brave bettor to lock in the futures odds currently available.

Pistons 2021-22 Predictions

  • Division Standing: 5th

Detroit Pistons Betting Picks & News

Detroit Pistons Team Leaders

There isn’t a lot of leadership on the Pistons’ roster, but Jerami Grant is the player that will run the offense.

Grant comes off a terrific season, but statistics are always inflated when the quality of players isn’t there. The 27-year-old could have a similar year, which could see his scoring average increase, so he needs to lead by example.

He has numerous young players on the team, who will be desperate for a leader. There are seven players under the age of 23, so Grant, and players like Kelly Olynyk and Cory Joseph, need to use their experience to benefit the team.

Last Season

Tanking was a commonly used term for the low-quality teams last season, and Detroit was the leader in that respect.

The Pistons went 20-52, but it was good enough to secure the top overall NBA draft pick, so they achieved that.

Fans, and bettors alike, had to endure a rough season. The Pistons had enough ability to win more than 20 games, but due to their situation, 100% effort wasn’t always available in the second half.

It was all about getting the likes of Killian Hayes, Isaiah Stewart and Saddiq Bey experience, and we think it worked. They played well despite the poor win/loss record, and it could have a flow-on effect.

There were also positive signs for Grant, who emerged as a premium scorer for the Pistons. He didn’t get much help, but it’s early days in this system.

Head Coach

Dwane Casey had years of success with the Toronto Raptors, including a 56-26 season in 2015-16. However, life hasn’t been so simple since arriving in Detroit.

Casey knew it was going to be a tough slog, but after winning 41 games in 2018-19, the expectations might have exceeded reality. The Pistons have won only 40 games combined over the last two seasons, which puts pressure on Casey.

Detroit is in a rebuilding phase, so there is a fair amount of wiggle room. However, there are only so many losing seasons a franchise can endure before heads start to roll.

Casey is a quality coach when he has a decent roster, so bettors should expect to see some improvement in the coming years.
