Vegas Over/Under: 38.5
The Record Projection: 41 of fromal The Bet: Hammer the over This is not about the Detroit Pistons’ upsidedown. All indications point to those playoff contenders having one of the highest flooring –relative to their over/under line, at leastand consequently becoming one of the league’s safest over stakes.
Everything went wrong during the 2016-17 campaign, along with also the Pistons managed to squeeze 37 wins from their troops.
Now, they get to function with another year of improvement from Andre Drummond, Stanley Johnson and another young players, add great matches in Luke Kennard and Avery Bradley, get deeper in the frontcourt with the addition of Anthony Tolliver and ought to have a healthier version of Reggie Jackson leading the charge.
The beleaguered point guard can not play worse than he did last season, and we have very little reason to think that is his true level. Since Duncan Smith wrote for Piston Powered:”The question now remains whether Jackson is going to be the participant of a year ago or two years back, or whether he’ll be somewhere in between. His priority that summer was nothing but rehabilitation, eschewing on-court function to concentrate solely on strengthening the knee”
Even somewhere between the fringe All-Star of 2015-16 and the tragedy of 2016-17 would leave the Pistons in far better position, along with the deepening backcourt should allow them to break him more and keep the knee tendinitis from flaring up again. Additionally, that’s not the best news of all.
The Pistons still play at the Eastern Conference, and it is poorer than ever.
