When will the losing streak end for the Detroit Pistons?

Dwane Casey’s team has dropped eight straight games, falling short in a comeback attempt against the Portland Trail Blazers on Monday night. Now, the Pistons play the second night of a back-to-back against the Washington Wizards.

The Wizards are holding on to the No. 10 spot in the Eastern Conference, but they’ve lost two straight coming into this game.

Kyle Kuzma and Monte Morris are both listed as questionable for Washington in this game, but the Pistons injury report is far worse.

Detroit has listed Jalen Duren, Isaiah Stewart, Bojan Bogdanovic, Killian Hayes and Hamidou Diallo on the injury report for this game. It’s unclear at the moment which players will be ruled out.

Here are the latest odds and picks for this game:

Wizards vs. Pistons prediction and pick

It may seem crazy given how the Pistons have played lately, but I think they can cover the spread in this game.

Washington is just 20th in the NBA in net rating this season, and the Wizards are just 2-4 since returning from the All-Star break.

Detroit hasn’t been great over this losing streak, but it has only lost three games by more than eight points. In fact, it was just a 5.5-point underdog on Monday against Portland.

The Pistons are 6-5 ATS on the second night of back-to-backs this season, and while I wouldn’t bet them to win, they are undervalued against an average Wizards team.

Game odds refresh periodically and are subject to change.
