The Pistons are coming off an underdog win against the Western Conference No. 3 seed. They completed a 126-116 victory over the Jazz and now have four wins in six games. This should be a good momentum booster for the squad before facing the Bulls on the road.
At the same time, despite losing their latest matchup to the Mavs, the Bulls still secured nine wins in ten games. This is a testament to the efficiency and consistency of the squad. Ultimately, this should be an interesting pairing for both basketball and betting fans.

The team doesn’t have much to show on offense. They are hitting 31.1% (29th) of shots from beyond the arc and 48.6% (30th) of their shots from the shorter range. These numbers might not seem intimidating to a Bulls team with satisfactory defense, but the Pistons are beginning to show signs of improvement that could put pressure on their opponents.
Defense is where the Pistons produce better numbers. They limit opponents to 110.6 points (22nd) per game. The team has the tools to match the Bulls on offensive boards. As a team, they average 10.4 offensive rebounds (14th) per game.

Pistons vs. Bulls Expert Betting Prediction
The Detroit Pistons are having a great start in 2022 and are now on a mini two-game win streak. As it stands, the Pistons bring good value to the table. Covering the spread should be doable, but the team needs to be at their best to bring this one home. Simultaneously, the Bulls are winning but coming off their first loss in over three weeks. This is a blow to the team’s confidence, but we don’t expect the team to slow down anytime soon. They enter the contest as favorites this Tuesday.
