Detroit Pistons vs. Chicago Bulls

Where: United Center, Chicago, IL

When: Wednesday, November 20, 8:00 PM. ET.

The Chicago Bulls will be trying to snap their three-game losing streak when they take on the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday night.

Pistons Looking For Eighth Win In Last Nine Games Against Bulls

The Pistons have struggled this season and have lost their last four games, but they will be going into this game with a lot of confidence because they have dominated the Bulls in recent years and have won seven of the last eight meetings between the two teams. They will be trying to snap their four-game losing streak and pick up their eighth win in their last nine games against Chicago when they play on Wednesday night.

Detroit has struggled offensively this season, averaging 108.7 points per game. The team is shooting 47 percent from the field and 40 percent from three-point range.

In their last game, the Pistons scored 106 points against the Charlotte Hornets, led by Langston Galloway, who finished the game with 32 points and two rebounds. Blake Griffin added 19 points and six assists, while Andre Drummond finished with 16 points and 20 rebounds.

Detroit has also struggled defensively, holding opponents to 112.2 points per game. They held the Hornets to 109 points in their last game and will need another solid defensive effort to get past the Bulls.

Bulls Going For Second Consecutive Win Over Pistons

The Bulls were able to snap their seven-game losing streak to Detroit the last time the Pistons visited the United Center and will try to pick up their second consecutive win over their old rivals when they meet for the second time this season on Wednesday night, which will snap their three-game losing streak.

Chicago has struggled offensively, averaging 107.2 points per game. But the team has played well in their last four games and is averaging 111.7 points per game during that span.

In their last game, the Bulls were held to 101 points by the Milwaukee Bucks. Daniel Gafford led the Bulls with 21 points and five rebounds. Coby White finished with 13 points, three rebounds, and three assists, while Ryan Arcidiacono added 12 points and three rebounds.

Defensively, the Bulls are giving up 111.3 points per game. They gave up 115 points to Milwaukee in their last game and will need to do a better job if they want to beat the Pistons on Wednesday.

This is going to be a tight contest between two bad teams that have struggled against the spread. But, the Bulls have the slight edge in this game because they have played a little better than the Pistons and have home-court advantage. The Bulls have played a little better on the defensive end, holding opponents to 111.3 points per game while the Pistons are giving up 112.2 points per game. They have also played better than the Pistons offensively in their last four games, averaging 111.7 points per game while Detroit averages 108.5 points per game. The fact that the Bulls have outplayed the Pistons on both sides and the fact that Detroit has lost six consecutive road games since its season-opening win over Indiana makes Chicago the best bet here.

Prediction: Chicago Bulls -1.5
