Another day, another time that the Detroit Pistons are… favored!?

Detroit won outright as a favorite on Monday against the Charlotte Hornets, and the team is favored against the Toronto Raptors tonight. Still, I think the prop market may be the best way to go in this market since Detroit is just 2-4 ATS as a home favorite this season. 

The Raptors are extremely banged up with RJ Barrett, Scottie Barnes and Jakob Poeltl listed as out while Immanuel Quickley and Gary Trent Jr. are questionable.

That’s led to sportsbooks posting mainly Pistons props, which should be easier to handicap since we don’t have to worry about as many rotation players sitting out.

Here are my favorite plays for this matchup on Wednesday night: 

Raptors vs. Pistons best NBA prop bets

  • Cade Cunningham OVER 22.5 points
  • Jaden Ivey OVER 1.5 3-pointers made

Cade Cunningham OVER 22.5 points

Cade Cunningham has been on a heater, clearing 22.5 points in seven of his last 10 games, averaging 25.4 points per game over that stretch. 

The usage has also been there for the former No. 1 overall pick, as he’s taking 18.7 field goal attempts and 4.6 free throws per game over his last 10. 

The Raptors are extremely banged up, which means Detroit may have a chance to win this game – or at least keep it close. That’s a good sign for Cunningham, as he shouldn’t get pulled in this game to kill his props. 

Toronto is also just 24th in the league in defensive rating, so don’t be shocked if the Pistons rising star keeps up his strong play tonight. 

Jaden Ivey OVER 1.5 3-pointers made

This is a major volume play for Jaden Ivey, who hasn’t shot the 3-ball as well as many would have liked this season (33.5 percent). 

However, Ivey is still confident in his long-range shot, as he’s attempted five or more shots from beyond the arc in each of his last six games. 

Over that six-game stretch, Ivey has just two games with multiple made 3-pointers, but I have a hard time taking the UNDER knowing how many times he’s going to get the ball up from deep. 

Toronto could be a favorable matchup for Ivey, as the team allows the fifth-most 3s per game this season.
