New York is favored by 8 points at Caesars Sportsbook, while the Over-Under is set at 213.5 (see up-to-date odds for every game this week on our NBA odds page). Before making any Knicks vs. Pistons picks, you NEED to check out the NBA predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model.

The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every NBA game 10,000 times and has returned well over $10,000 in profit on its top-rated NBA picks over the past three-plus seasons. The model enters Week 11 of the 2021-22 NBA season on a stunning 48-24 roll on all top-rated NBA picks, returning almost $2,000. Anyone following it has seen HUGE returns.

The model knows the Knicks are potent on the offensive glass, securing 28.4 percent of available rebounds. New York is producing 14.6 second-chance points per game as a result, and the Knicks also maximize possessions by committing only 13.4 turnovers per game. The Knicks attempt 20.8 free throws per game, and the Pistons are No. 30 in the NBA in field goal percentage allowed. On defense, New York ranks in the top five in field goal shooting allowed (44.0 percent) and points in the paint allowed (42.6 per game). Detroit is dead-last in the league in offensive efficiency, and the Pistons are battling roster challenges.

The model also knows the Pistons have the benefit of home-court advantage and a few key strengths. Detroit is in the top five of the NBA in free throw attempts, averaging more than 22 per game, and the Pistons are making 78.7 percent of those shots. On defense, the Pistons force 15.7 turnovers per game, third-most in the NBA. That includes 8.1 steals per contest, and Detroit is allowing only 11.9 three-pointers per game.
