Cade Cunningham and the Detroit Pistons are starting to find themselves as the season winds down.

They’ve won two in a row and five of seven overall, beating some good teams along the way and looking far more competitive.

Cade Cunningham is rolling, Saddiq Bey is having his best stretch of the season and Isaiah Stewart is finishing strong as well.

The bench has been boosted by Marvin Bagley III (just waiting for Frank Jackson to get back now) and Detroit is starting to build chemistry, which you love to see.

The Atlanta Hawks have had a disappointing season, but they’ve also been playing well of late, winning 5-of-7 coming into Detroit tonight.

Detroit Pistons vs. Atlanta Hawks: Odds, spread, over/under, best bets and Cade Cunningham

According to WynnBET, the Pistons are 7.5 point underdogs at home tonight against the Hawks.

Detroit’s last four games have been within five points or fewer, so I like the Pistons to cover this spread at home against the Hawks.

The money lines are set at +275 for Detroit and -350 for Atlanta, which again seems a bit high. These odds are pretty tempting, as the Pistons have been playing much better on both ends and have been getting huge nights from their Big 3 of Cunningham, Bey and Jerami Grant.

The over/under is 228 combined points, which seems a tad high considering these two teams score 216 combined on average and give up 224 points defensively. Detroit has been better defensively of late, so I like the under for this one.

As for daily fantasy, this has the makings of a huge night for Cade Cunningham, as I am not sure who on the Hawks is going to guard him.

None of Trae Young, Delon Wright, Lou Williams or Kevin Huerter (questionable) can stop Cade, and if they use one of their wings on him, then a guard is going to be defending either Saddiq Bey or Jerami Grant, which should lead to a lot of assists for Cade.

I feel like this is a night Cade Cunningham is going to go off and he is my top pick for daily fantasy.

Saddiq Bey has also been rolling and Marvin Bagley III should be able to abuse the Hawks’ backup bigs, so I like him as a low-cost play.
