The Phoenix Suns and Detroit Pistons face off in a matinee NBA contest at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday. Phoenix is favored by 11.5 points at Caesars Sportsbook, while the Over-Under is set at 215 (see up-to-date odds for every game this week on our NBA odds page). Before making any Suns 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 13 of the 2021-22 NBA season on a stunning 52-28 roll on all top-rated NBA picks, returning almost $2,000. Anyone following it has seen HUGE returns.

The model knows the Suns have the best record in the NBA, and Phoenix is out-scoring opponents by more than seven points per 100 possessions. Phoenix is electric on offense, scoring more than 1.11 points per possession, and much of that stems from an elite shooting profile. The Suns are making 47.2 percent of field goal attempts with 37.0 percent from three-point range and 80.6 percent at the free throw line. Phoenix also shares the ball extremely well, averaging 26.1 assists per game this season.

The model also knows the Pistons use the free throw line well on offense, and the defense creates real havoc. Detroit is above-average in free throw creation and free throw accuracy on offense, and the Pistons are No. 3 in the NBA in turnovers on defense (15.6 per game). Detroit averages 8.3 steals per game, holding opponents to only 11.7 fast break points per game. The Pistons are also good on the defensive glass, limiting opponents to 12.8 second-chance points per contest.

Now, it has set its sights on Suns vs. Pistons. We can tell you the model is leaning under the total, and it also says one side of the spread hits in almost 60 percent of simulations! You ABSOLUTELY need to see it before locking in any NBA picks.
