Predictions, Odds, and Betting Preview for the Detroit Pistons vs Atlanta Hawks NBA Regular Season Game on March 21, 2023
- Where: State Farm Arena, Atlanta, Georgia
- When: Tuesday, March 21, 2023, 7:30 PM E.T.
Betting on the Detroit Pistons
- Regular Season Record: 16-56
After being eliminated from postseason contention and with the worst record in the NBA, the Detroit Pistons will surely be looking to spoil the party for those teams seeking a playoff berth by the end of the regular season.
After seven losses in their last eight games, Dwane Casey’s Hawks will get into a stretch of five games on the road, which is not encouraging at all considering they are the third-worst team on the road with a 7-27 record.
The Pistons’ offense is among the worst in the league, averaging just 111.1 points per game, the third lowest in the league, while failing to pass the 100+ point mark in their last three games.
If the offense is poor, Detroit’s defense is not far behind: they are the second team that allows the second most points per game to their opponents with 118.6 and the third that concedes the most field goals with a compromising 49.1%.
Betting on the Atlanta Hawks
- Regular Season Record: 35-36
While the loss to the Spurs may not have been in their plans, the Hawks still have an important cushion to maintain their place in the Eastern Conference Play-in.
Prior to their meeting with the Pistons, Atlanta sits eighth in the conference, four games behind Brooklyn for sixth place and three games ahead of the Pacers for the spot that would knock them out of the postseason.
Atlanta’s offense has carried this team throughout the campaign, which is why they rank fifth in the league in points scored per game with an average of 117.4.
Both Trae Young and Dejounte Murray average more than 20 points per game, and collectively they have the third-lowest team loss rate (12.8) and the fourth best shooting percentage from the free throw line (81.6%).
Defensively is where the problems come in, as Quin Snyder’s team is allowing the seventh-highest average points with 117.5 and opponents are shooting nearly 49% from the field against them.
To be defined.
