Detroit Pistons vs Phoenix Suns Odds and Prediction
Detriot Pistons have struggled this season as they have just 10 victories and massive 31 defeats this season. This Sunday night, they will have a tough time when they host the Western Conference’s table topper Phoenix Suns.
The only good thing for Detriot Pistons is that they have been able to win 3 of their last 4 games. In the last game, they defeated Toronto Raptors. However, their home record is as disappointing as their away record. They have just 7 wins at home while they have lost 13 games.
Phoenix Suns on the other hand are on two games winning streak. They top the Western Conference points table with 32 victories and 9 defeats. Despite being a visitor, they will start as favorites for the Sunday night game.
Detroit Pistons vs Phoenix Suns Odds and Prediction: Match Odds
Although they play at home, a win for the Pistons against the Suns this Sunday seems to be almost impossible for the team from Michigan. The Pistons have the second-worst win percentage in the league and a home record just as bad as their road record.
On the other side of the country, the Suns are flying this season and they divide with the Golden State Warriors the favoritism to be the Western Conference champions this year. They have the best win percentage in the league, .775 win%, and an excellent (depends on the game against Indiana) road record.
This is the second time Pistons and Suns play against each other this season and the record is positive for the Arizonian squad. On Dec. 2, the Suns beat their rivals from Michigan by 114-103 at the Footprint Center in Phoenix, Ariz.
Detroit Pistons vs Phoenix Suns Odds and Prediction: Match Analysis
The Pistons have a frustrating 2021-2022 NBA season and the NBA 2004 champions do not tend to fight for anything more than a better position below the play-in tournament spots until the end of the regular season. They are considered to be the second-worst team this season and they are the team with the second-lowest number of victories in the league.
Defensively, they occupy the second position in the opponents per game average ranking due to the fact their rivals tend to score at least 111 points when they play against them. The defeat against the Chicago Bulls last Tuesday is an example of how bad the team defended this season, as the team allow their opponents from Chicago to score 133 on them.
Offensively, the Pistons are considered to have the second-worst attack in the league, as they average scoring 101.2 points per game. The Pistons also have the worst field goal percentage in the league and the second-worst three-pointers percentage in this NBA season.
Isaiah Stewart, Pistons’ center, has been the best player for the Pistons this season as he has the best defensive numbers of his team. The center has 8.3 rebounds per game average and he has 42 blocks, so far.

Jerami Grant – Thumb Injury
Kelly Olynyk – Knee Injury
The Suns continue to play an excellent level of basketball and they are serious candidates to bring the Western Conference title to Phoenix. The team has the best record in the league and they come from a positive sequence to this Sunday’s game.
The team has one of the best defenses in the league and they are not likely to allow their opponents to score a lot of points during their matches. For example, in the game against the Raptors and Clippers, the Suns allow their opponents to score only 95 and 89 points, respectively.
Despite the fact the Suns have fewer games compared to other NBA teams, the squad from Arizona still occupies a high position in the points per game average rankings, as they have the fifth-best PPG in the league. Also, they are the third team with the highest field goal percentage in the league, as well as the third-highest three-pointers percentage in the NBA.
Devin Booker, Suns’ shooting guard, and Chris Paul, Suns’ point guard, continue to be outstanding for the Western leaders. While Booker has the highest points per game average in his team, 23.4 PPG, Paul has the best assists per game numbers in the league and the highest numbers of steals for his team.

Detroit Pistons vs Phoenix Suns Odds and Prediction: Game Preview
Although the Pistons play at home, the Suns are clearly the favorite for Sunday’s match. These two teams have completely opposite campaigns in this season and it would be very hard to imagine the home team beating the Arizonians this Sunday.
Additionally, the Suns have one of the best road records in the league and they have already beaten the Pistons during the 2021-2022 year. So, it is safe to say Phoenix Suns’ fans are more likely to end their weekend with a happy face than the Pistons’ fans.
