Detroit Pistons vs. Phoenix Suns Betting Prediction

The Detroit Pistons have been much more competitive lately, as they have not lost by double figures in over two weeks despite their 2-6 record over that span. Facing the Phoenix Suns on the road will likely end that streak, however. Look for Phoenix to dominate on both ends, winning this contest by at least 13 points.

Prediction: Phoenix Suns -12 (-110)
