Detroit Pistons @ Utah Jazz
This is a game between two teams who have contrasting fortunes at the moment. The Jazz are on the up and the Pistons are on the slide. If current form is any indicator, the home side should have a convincing win on their hands, but could this be the game that the Pistons make a turn for the good?
The Pistons hold a 23-42 record at the moment, and this includes an 11-21 record on the road. They have lost their last 9 games in a row, resulting in a 1-9 record in their last 10 games. On Friday night, they lost in Portland with the Blazers winning by 118-99.
The Jazz has a 28-36 record and this includes a 15-16 record at home. The Jazz are on a winning streak of 4, including Thursday night’s 109-91 win against the Rockets and the Jazz currently have an 8-2 record in their last 10 games.
For average points scored, the Pistons have the advantage, 98.1 to 95.3 and for average points allowed, the Jazz are the leaders, with a 95.7 record compared to the 100.1 record of the Pistons. The Pistons have a slight concern over the fitness of Joel Anthony while the Jazz have a clean bill of health.
The Jazz are big favourites for this game so taking them with a negative handicap is still a worthwhile activity for Saturday NBA Betting action. Bet Now!
Sacramento Kings @ Washington Wizards
While no one will want to speak too soon, it may be that the Washington Wizards are over the major slump in form that they had and they can continue to look forward to the playoffs. The Wizards are back to being within two of the top of the Eastern Conference, which is remarkable after they suffered a 2-11 run in January and February.
The Kings have a 22-42 record which includes a road record of 9-23. They lost their most recent game away to the 76ers in a 114-107 loss and they currently hold a 3-7 record in their last 10 games.

For average points scored, the Kings have the advantage with a 101.0 record compared to a 98.5 record and for average points allowed, the Wizards lead by 97.3 to 105.2.
The Kings have slight doubts over DeMarcus Cousins and Ryan Hollins while the Wizards are monitoring Garret Temple and Nene Hilario while Kris Humphries.
This match will be a test to determine if the Wizards really are back on track but you should expect them to be flying for this one, making them a good bet, even with a modest negative handicap. Bet Now!
