Friday night’s NBA action kicks off the first week of the league when the Detroit Pistons (0-1, 1-0 ATS) travel to face the Charlotte Hornets (1-0, 1-0 ATS). Wednesday night was the first game for both teams. Detroit dropped their first game on the road at Miami, 103-102, but they won the wager despite being 9.5-point underdogs. Charlotte defeated Atlanta 116-110 in their home debut, prevailing as 2.5-point underdogs. Last year, Detroit prevailed in three of the four meetings. Starting at 7:00 EST, the Spectrum Center in Charlotte will serve as the tipoff point.
