Detroit Pistons vs Toronto Raptors 2/12/2023 Best Picks, Odds and Predictions

The Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, Canada, will host a high-stakes NBA showdown between the Detroit Pistons and the Raptors on Sunday afternoon. The Pistons (15-21) find themselves tied with the Charlotte Hornets for the worst record in the Eastern Conference and have had difficulty on the road, with 21 losses in 28 away games. However, the Pistons persevered in their last outing, needing double overtime to secure a 138-131 victory over the San Antonio Spurs at home. Bojan Bogdanovic was the standout performer for Detroit, scoring 32 points, including a perfect 10-for-10 showing at the free-throw line. Rookie center Jalen Duren also made a significant impact, with 30 points, 17 rebounds, and four blocks, while Hamidou Diallo came off the bench to score 14 points in just 18 minutes. Jaden Ivey contributed 17 points, eight rebounds, and eight assists, while Bojan Bogdanovic led the team in scoring, hitting 11 of 24 shots from the field. 

Despite their shooting struggles, hitting just 43% from the field and 7 of 37 from 3-point range, the Pistons were able to overcome a nine-point deficit in the fourth quarter and secure the win in the second overtime. Jaden Ivey and Killian Hayes had a rough shooting night, hitting only three of 15 and one of 11 shots, respectively.

  • The Detroit Pistons are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games on the road.
  • The Pistons are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games on the road against Toronto.
  • Detroit are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games with an opponent in the Eastern Conference. 

Detroit Pistons vs Toronto Raptors 2/12/2023 Best Picks, Odds and Predictions

The Toronto Raptors are in the hunt for a top-ten finish in the Eastern Conference, trailing the Washington Wizards by just half a game and holding a three-game advantage over .500 at home. Despite an impressive effort from All-Star forward Pascal Siakam, who put up 35 points on efficient shooting and collected six rebounds, the Raptors couldn’t secure a win in their last outing, falling 122-116 to the Utah Jazz at home. 

The fourth quarter proved to be the downfall for Toronto, as they were outscored 19-0, allowing the Jazz to dominate in the paint with 76 points and shoot an impressive 54% from the field. Supporting Siakam, Gary Trent Jr. added 19 points on 7-of-20 shooting along with five rebounds, while Fred VanVleet contributed 17 points on 4-of-13 shooting and four assists.

  • The total went OVER in 6 of Toronto’s last 8 games against an opponent in the East.
  • The total stayed UNDER in 13 of Toronto’s last 19 games with a rival in the Central Division.
  • Toronto are 12-6 SU in their last 18 games played in February. 

Detroit Pistons vs. Toronto Raptors. The NBA pick for this game is the Toronto Raptors. Injury may impact the lineup for the Toronto Raptors as power forward O.G. Anunoby is questionable for the game with a sprained left wrist. Despite this, the Detroit Pistons, who hold the second worst defensive efficiency rating in the league, have a shot at covering the spread. Given the Raptors’ recent performance, it may not be wise to bet on them laying such a large number of points. The prediction for this game is a Toronto victory with a final score of 119-114.
