Indiana is 5-5 in its last 10 games. On Thursday, the Pacers won 134-125 over the Houston Rocekts. However, they’re 3-12 in their past 15 road contests. And Indiana has covered the spread in its previous five meetings versus Eastern Conference opponents.
Furthermore, for Detroit’s injury report, Alec Burks (foot), Bojan Bogdanovic (Achilles), and Jaden Ivey (quarantine) are all out for Saturday’s matchup. Marvin Bagley III (ankle) is probable, Isaiah Stewart (hip) remains out indefinitely, and both Hamidou Diallo (ankle) and Cade Cunningham (shin) are out for the season.

Additionally, the Pistons are on a 10-game losing streak. They’re 0-5 in their last five at home, 0-11 in their past 11 encounters against East teams, and 1-8 ATS in their previous nine meetings versus Central Division opponents. Not to mention, the total has gone under in six of Detroit’s last six home games when playing the Pacers.
Per ESPN’s Basketball Power Index, Indiana has a 75.8% chance of defeating the Pistons away. Because of various injuries and less than 20 wins, Detroit is shutting it down for the season. Sportsbooks show the Pacers as a 6.5-point road favorite.
