One of the few teams to consistently reflect the city in which it plays, the Detroit Pistons have always found success by playing a relentless, working-class type of ball that won them the 1989, 1990 and 2004 NBA championship. They started out as the Fort Wayne Pistons in 1941 before moving to Detroit in 1957, where they’ve become part of the city’s fabric. Detroit Pistons betting lines often depend on whether the team has forged a tough identity or not.

Betting On The Detroit Pistons
For the regular season, the majority of the bets that will be placed will be on moneyline odds that sportsbook oddsmakers determine before the game. The most popular bets usually involve predicting the winner of a single match. The most likely to win is assigned a negative moneyline by a sportsbook while the underdog receives a positive number for their moneyline.
The moneyline also lets you know how much that you will win when making a wager on a team. A negative moneyline, such as -175, requires a player to wager $175 to win $100. A positive moneyline, such as +225, reflects that the player will win $225 when betting on the underdog. These betting lines reflect the greater risk of losing money on an underdog, paying out more per dollar wagered for winning bets.
You can also bet on whether or not a team will win the NBA championships, with odds expressed like a ratio of 50-1. When the playoffs begin and the matchups are determined, sportsbooks may also take bets on which team will win the series, including prop bets like how many games the series will last, or the team which will give up home court advantage first.
Ever since the 2004 Pistons recaptured the magic of the “Bad Boy” team that won the 1989 and 1990 championships, the squad has struggled through a series of disappointments. However, now that their leadership situation has been figured out, they appear to be on the upswing. As a result, despite their inconsistency, betting fans can expect the Pistons to potentially beat any team on any given night, providing the opportunity to predict an upset.
