Jazz Pistons Betting Tips – Detroit Stays Strong At Home

Utah Jazz @ Detroit Pistons – Saturday January 12, 2013 7:30PM EST

It has been a while since the Detroit Pistons has been relevant in the Eastern Conference playoff race. Last season, the online sportsbook experts thought that Detroit was on the verge of becoming a playoff contender, but the team fell short of playoff success. Most NBA fans agreed that the Pistons needed to make changes if it wanted to improve over last season and some Pistons fans were hopeful that James Harden would make his way to Detroit. But Harden went to Houston and the Pistons is left with essentially the same team that fell short last season.

The Utah Jazz is always one of those teams that the sports betting experts never know how to read in the preseason. The Jazz is not playing great basketball, but it finds itself only a game and a half out of a playoff spot in the Western Conference. The Jazz has been struggling with scoring points in the second half of games lately, and that has cost the team valuable spots in the standings. In this game, the Jazz will need to find a way to match the intensity of a Detroit team that knows that it must continue to win at home if it wants to make the playoffs.

Why the Pistons Will Win

The Detroit Pistons is a much better team at home than it is on the road. At home, Detroit has a 10-9 record as opposed to its road record of 3-14. The betting sites know that Detroit will need to pick up the pace on the road if it wants to make a playoff run, but it is essential that Detroit keep winning at home if it wants to be in the playoffs. Detroit plays a physical style of basketball that may be more than enough to keep the Jazz off balance and win this game for the Pistons.

Why the Jazz Will Win

The Jazz is just barely above .500 with a 19-18 record on the season. Right now, that is enough to keep Utah ahead of teams like the Lakers in the battle for a Western Conference playoff position. But Utah will need to keep using its ability to shoot from the perimeter if it wants to stay competitive in the standings. The long range game of the Jazz may be just what Utah needs to beat a team like Detroit that plays such close defense.

The Bottom Line

Utah does not have the players to match the physical intensity of the Pistons, and that should be the big difference in this game. While Utah can shoot from outside the paint, it is not nearly consistent enough to be able to replace a game under the boards with a long range game from outside the three-point line. This game will be close, but it should go to Detroit.

Pick: Detroit Pistons
