The Detroit Pistons entered a new era in June when they selected blue chip prospect Cade Cunningham with the first overall pick. While there’s still a ton of work to do in Motown before Detroit is considered a contender, nabbing Cunningham should expedite that process considerably.

Bettors will want to keep an eye on the Pistons when making their NBA betting picks this season, because there are a handful of talented players that should make this rebuild a relatively quick process. There will be some great value on NBA picks involving Detroit this season.

Pistons Win-Total Betting

The Line: 24.5 (-110) at FanDuel

The Pistons were actively tanking down the stretch of the regular season and still managed to win 20 games (a 23-win pace over 82 games). They add Cunningham while youngsters like Saddiq Bey, Isaiah Stewart and Killian Hayes all gain a year of experience.

They quietly added Kelly Olynyk, Trey Lyles and Cory Joseph to go with Jerami Grant — and only need to add two wins to last year’s total. We’re surprised betting apps have this number so low.

The Bet: The Over at FanDuel will hit here.

Pistons Division Odds

The Line: +15000 with BetMGM

We do think the Pistons will be better than where most betting sites project them, but the fun stops here. The Central Division includes the Milwaukee Bucks, who have won the last three division crowns over the Pacers by 12, 11 and 12 games. This season will be no different, with the Pacers and Bulls the only miracle-requiring options to dethrone them. The Pistons have no chance of upsetting Milwaukee, Indiana and Chicago.

The Bet: Avoid these NBA odds here. The Bucks will take the Central again.Bet them instead at BetMGM Sportsbook.

Pistons Eastern Conference Odds

The Line: +10000 at WynnBET

Even if Cade Cunningham reaches his full potential and has a Rookie of the Year campaign, the Pistons have zero chance of running with the heavyweights in the East this season. An ultimate best-case scenario is them finding their way into the play-in tournament before a first-round exit. Put another way, sportsbooks couldn’t make these odds long enough for us to entertain them.

The Bet: Nothing doing here. Pass on this bet at WynnBET.

Pistons NBA Title Odds

The Line: +30000 with PointsBet Sportsbook

The Pistons haven’t won a postseason game since 2009, so we’re safely going to assume that they don’t go from first overall pick to a championship in the span of a year. Cunningham may get the Motor City a ring by the time he’s done, but it’s not happening in 2022.

The Bet: Stay away from these NBA title odds at PointsBet Sportsbook.

Best Pistons Player Prop Bets

The Line: Cade Cunningham, Rookie of the Year, +250 at DraftKings

This one’s pretty easy to explain. Cunningham is the first pick, a point guard and will play 35+ minutes from his first game in Detroit. He checks all the boxes of what a Rookie of the Year should be, and it helps that he’s considered the league’s best prospect since Zion Williamson. A healthy Cunningham should be in the hunt to win this award by season’s end.

The Bet: This is a pretty safe play as far as NBA futures go. Bet on it at DraftKings Sportsbook.
