The Detroit Pistons haven’t beaten the Chicago Bulls in three years, but hope to end that streak tonight at Little Caesar’s Arena.

The Bulls have won 10 in a row vs. the Pistons, which is painful, as Chicago is one of Detroit’s biggest and oldest rivals even though it’s been awhile since they’ve both been good in the same season.

This could be a good time for the steak to end, as the Pistons are playing their best basketball of the season, winning 6-of-8 behind strong play from rookie Cade Cunningham, who is in a close 3-way battle for Rookie of the Year.

The Bulls will be without Lonzo Ball, Alex Caruso and Patrick Williams, though all three are making progress and could be back soon. Nikola Vucevic is listed as questionable and will be a game-time decision.

Chicago has lost five in a row as they try to weather injuries and a tough stretch in their schedule.

Detroit has won three straight and would love nothing more than to extend that streak while ending another.

Unfortunately, the Pistons will be shorthanded themselves, with Isaiah Stewart out with a bruised knee, Frank Jackson out with continued back issues and Killian Hayes questionable after catching a stray Jerami Grant knee against the Hawks.

Can Cade Cunningham and the Detroit Pistons continue to roll and finally beat the hated Bulls?

Detroit Pistons vs. Chicago Bulls: Odds, spread, over/under and best bets

According to WynnBET, the Detroit Pistons are six point underdogs at home against the Chicago Bulls.

Detroit has been playing close games of late and is 7-0-1 against the spread over their last eight games, winning six of them outright.

I like the Pistons to cover again in this one, so would take the points.

The money lines are set at +200 for the Pistons and -250 for the Bulls. Even shorthanded, the Bulls are a good team, but if Vucevic is also out, these odds look tempting for Detroit. I would still take the points, but if you are looking for a bigger payoff, just take Detroit to win.

The over/under is 226.6 combined points, which would normally seem high considering these two teams have played low-scoring games this season. But the Bulls are missing two of their best defenders and have allowed 123 per game over their last three.

I like the over in this one with the points, as the Pistons are playing well and could find some mismatches against the Bulls.

Jerami Grant will be focused on slowing down DeMar DeRozan, so I don’t like him in daily fantasy. Cade Cunningham will be hounded by big guards all night and Ayo Dosunmu has given him trouble in the past.

But with Ball and Caruso out, I still like Cade to keep rolling and have a big all-around game.

As for low-cost fantasy plays, Marvin Bagley III should have an extended role with Isaiah Stewart out and has been putting up nice stats off the bench.

I like Bagley III in this one, especially if Vucevic is out.
