Tips For Betting On Detroit Pistons – Drummond, Monroe Could Help Push Pistons Towards Contention In 2012-13

Posted by Craig Parsons on 10/22/2012 6:51:21 PM

The Detroit Pistons were one of the worst teams in the NBA last season. Fortunately, the Charlotte Bobcats’ awful season was enough to distract sports betting fans from last year’s 25-41 record, and a talented young roster could help ensure this team enjoys a much better regular season in 2012-13. Greg Monroe, Andre Drummond, and Rodney Stuckey are among those players expected to take a step forward this season and lead the Pistons back in to playoff contention, but with Tayshaun Prince and Jason Maxiell still in the fold, it could be at least one more season before this Detroit team is ready.

Pistons’ Head coach Lawrence Frank has gotten both too much credit when the team has been hot, and too much criticism when the team hasn’t played well, but he seems to be the right guy to lead the young roster Detroit has through this transition period. After hitting in the draft with players like Monroe, Jonas Jerebko, and Brandon Knight, it seems as though the Pistons got exactly what they needed once again this year with the addition of Drummond. A strong, physical player that has exceptional athleticism, Drummond has looked very good this preseason and could exceed what most online sportsbook players thought he could do in his first season. The first round pick has surprised fans with some excellent numbers so far in training camp and the preseason, and his ability to run the floor and ball at both ends has helped separate him from the rest.

The question mark here is whether or not Drummond’s teammates can put him in a position to succeed, and also support him by getting on the board with their own numbers on a consistent basis. Knight certainly has the talent to play at a high level in this league and is a solid shooter, but will need to develop as a point guard as he managed just a 3.8 assist-to-turnover ratio a year ago. Monroe will be a staple up front, but there are question marks about who will start along side him with Kyle Singler and Khris Middleton both in the fold. Prince and Stuckey are destined to start at the three and two, where Detroit does have some interesting depth pieces with Jerebko and Corey Maggette. Charlie Villanueva is still in the fold as a backup forward, and it will be interesting to see if Frank can find a way to squeeze some production from the former first-round pick after another disappointing season.

With both Monroe and Stuckey taking a major step forward last season and the arrival of Drummond, the pieces are certainly there for the Pistons to turn the online betting corner. The question heading in to this season is whether or not Knight will emerge as a legitimate starting point guard, as well as the roles that veterans like Prince and Villanueva will play. If everything goes right, Detroit could be in the mix of teams battling for a playoff spot as the regular season winds down. However, if things start to go wrong, this Pistons’ team could end up near the basement of the Eastern conference once again.
