The Detroit Pistons will host the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday night. Here is how to watch this Eastern Conference NBA game online via live streaming.
We’re still in the first week of the 2017-18 NBA season. There will be eight NBA games on the slate for Monday night. One of those games will be between Eastern Conference opponents in the Philadelphia 76ers (0-3) and the Detroit Pistons (2-1).
Tipoff from brand-new Little Caesars Arena in Detroit will be at 7:00 p.m. ET. NBC Sports Philadelphia will carry the 76ers telecast in the Greater Philadelphia area. FOX Sports Detroit will have the Pistons telecast in the Greater Detroit area. The available live streams can be found on NBA League Pass and on FuboTV.
Philadelphia is struggling out of the gate. The 76ers are one of five NBA teams that do not have a win on the year. They are 0-3 this season with losses to the Washington Wizards, the Boston Celtics and the Toronto Raptors. To be fair, those are all certain Eastern Conference playoff teams. However, this is the year that many felt the 76ers would get into the top-eight in the East.
Detroit enters play at 2-1 on the season. The Pistons have wins over the Charlotte Hornets and the New York Knicks on the season. Their lone loss came on the road to the Washington Wizards on Friday night. Like Philadelphia, Detroit is expected to contend for one of the last playoff spots in the East. They’ve played better in the first few games than the 76ers so far.
According to SportsBook Review, the Pistons will be laying 3.5 points at home to the visiting 76ers. The associated moneylines for this game are Detroit -165 and Philadelphia +145. This game’s over/under comes in at a combined 213 points.
Philadelphia could come out with a bit of energy to get that elusive first win. That being said, swallow the 3.5 points to take the Pistons at home. So far, the Pistons have taken care of business against teams that they are better than. Look for them to do the same against the visiting 76ers.
We may inevitably look back on the season series between these two teams as the deciding factor for who makes the playoffs and who does not. This should be a close game between evenly matched teams.
