John Hyslop is all over the Detroit Pistons and Indiana Pacers matchup tonight. Here are two bets for you to tail from that game.

Detroit Pistons vs Indiana Pacers Prediction: Trust Malcolm Brogdon and Saddiq Bey to Go Off

Go ahead and list all the things that are better than heading into a Friday night NBA slate on a two-bet winning streak. Before you do that, keep in mind that Saturday is tomorrow and if we win tonight that will mean we can do whatever we want over the weekend. That's just how being a betting God works.

We should get used to it. With that being said, there's a lot on the line for us and we should know it. Whatever we bet tonight will catapult us into a weekend filled with even more bets. These bets are even more fun when we win them so there's that to consider too. That's why I did more mental simulations on the Detroit Pistons vs Indiana Pacers game tonight than I've ever done for any one game in my life. We need to be sure when we're in such a delicate situation such as the one we are in now. After all of those mental simmies, I'm confident that this could be the greatest night of all time.

Detroit Pistons vs Indiana Pacers Picks

Malcolm Brogdon 20+ Points (+122) (Bet $100 to win $122)

Saddiq Bey 20+ Points (+144) (Bet $100 to win $144)

These are two separate bets people. Let's just get that straight right now. Both can be found at FanDuel because they have the 20+ style bets. I believe them to be the greatest invention in gambling history although I will let history decide that one. I'm a class act like that.

Obviously, tonight is shaping up to be special with this little tag team move I cooked up. Usually, you have to pay extra for that type of action but not tonight. Being betting Gods like we are has its perks.

If you've never done a tag team move, it's fine. You'll pick up quick on why this is the best possible thing you can do in sports betting. Especially on a Friday night. This move is very rare since you need is two guys on separate teams playing each other that could play a lot of minutes, a total that's high but could go over and a disrespectful line set by the books. Lucky for us, we have that tonight.

I don't blame the books for Malcolm Brogdon since his minutes are murky coming back from an injury. Still, the guy played 41 minutes last time out. He's good to go. As far as Bey is concerned, he's a streaky guy so I can see how the books screwed him up too. I'm nothing if I'm not fair and these awful lines aren't totally the books' fault.

All we need is one of these guys to get into the 20s to make money but I want both. Brogdon is most likely to get home since he's scored at least 20 in two of the three games since becoming healthy again. The one game he didn't was his first one back which is understandable. The guy hadn't played in a month. Give him a break. He still dropped 15. The point is we won't be getting his 20+ at plus money much longer. We should hit it tonight since only three teams in the entire NBA allow more points to the shooting guard position (he's playing off the ball way more these days).

In terms of Saddiq Bey, I'm a man of second chances. I know he hurt us the other night but he still looked good. Over his last three games, he's only been under 20 points once and in that game he poured in 19. The thing here is the Pacers can't cover forwards. Only two teams allow more points per game to the power forward and only five teams give up more to the small forward. Bey plays a little of both and he's already taken advantage of this with a 28-point game back in December. I think we're getting another 20-burger out of him.
