Tonight's Prop Bets
The player prop bets are 6-5, making $65 wagering $50 per prop.
Detroit Pistons at New York Knicks
7:30 p.m. ET
Line: Knicks –7 | Total: 218 points
I am betting on the Pistons +7 points as offered at BetMGM.
The Knicks appear to be a team of castoffs and only time will tell if they can be a playoff contender.
The Pistons had a great win coming back from a double-digit deficit to defeat the Orlando Magic 113-109 and covered the spread by a single point priced as a 3-point favorite.
Pistons coach Dwane Casey will look to build on the positive momentum and look to get out to a 2-0 record after the Pistons posted the third-worst record at 23-59 straight-up (44-36-2 against the spread) last season.
I expect the Piston’s forward Bojan Bogdanovic to have a big game after scoring 24 points in 24 minutes against the Magic in the opener.
