The Wednesday NBA schedule will tip-off with a meeting between the Washington Wizards and Detroit Pistons from Little Caesars Arena.

The Wizards are eight games below .500 overall and still one of the more talented teams in the Eastern Conference. On Sunday, Washington was outscored by 13 points during the third quarter of a 105-89 road loss against Indiana. The Wizards turned the ball over 22 times and shot just 37 percent from the field.

Washington F Markieff Morris tallied a team high 16 points and six rebounds in 25 minutes off the bench. John Wall and Bradley Beal combined for just 14 points on a woeful 3-for-18 shooting effort. The Detroit Pistons started the season off strong for first year head coach Dwane Casey, but have lost eight of their last ten games. Last time out, Detroit fell behind by 14 points at halftime during a disappointing 98-95 home loss versus Atlanta. The Pistons were outrebounded by a 67-52 margin and shot 41 percent from the floor.

Langston Galloway matched a game high with 18 points in just 22 minutes off the Detroit bench. Andre Drummond added 13 points and 15 rebounds in a losing effort for the Pistons.

Washington F Otto Porter Jr. is dealing with a Grade two knee strain and is expected to miss the next week of action. The Wizards rank third worst in the defensive efficiency, so the over is worth a look. The stronger play is on Detroit to dominate the glass and cruise to victory. Final Score Prediction, Detroit Pistons win and cover ATS 116-105.
