Why Bet on the Bulls
The Chicago Bulls are coming off just two monstrous wins in a row. Despite all the drama behind Fred Hoiberg, the head coach and his players, they are right in the mix of things.

Why Bet on the Pistons
For the Detroit Pistons, their win over Oklahoma City was huge at home, but keep in mind, the Thunder did not dress Kevin Durant. The Pistons have struggled this season on the road; winning just 15 out of 37 games. Detroit has won six out of their last seven games, with their lone loss during that time on the road in Atlanta. The Pistons are led in scoring by point guard Reggie Jackson, with 18.5 points per game, and 6.2 assists per game. Detroit is third in the league in rebounds, with 46.4 per game.
