Detroit Pistons 2024 NBA Championship Odds

The Detroit Pistons are a franchise that has become an utter catastrophe. Since finishing with a .303-win percentage in 2019-20, Detroit has only gotten worse. As the All-Star break approached, they were on pace for one of the worst seasons in NBA history. Once upon a time, the Pistons were a consistent championship contender. That made the playoffs every season from 2022 through 2009, winning the 2004 NBA championship. From 2002 through 2008, Detroit made the Eastern Conference Finals every season. Now, Detroit is in the dark ages, with casual gamblers avoiding them at all costs. Yet, as bad as Detroit is, the fact that squares avoid them allows for better wagering value than expected.

Detroit Pistons History

Detroit is one of the oldest NBA franchises. The Pistons were founded as the Fort Wayne Pistons in 1948, and they spent one season in the BAA before joining the NBA. They made a watered-down playoff in each of their first 14 seasons in the NBA, but they only made it to the NBA Finals twice, and they lost in both of those attempts to win a title.

Their most successful period came in the 1980s when they were the Bad Boys of the NBA. Detroit made it to the NBA Finals three straight years, and the Pistons won back-to-back titles in 1989 and 1990. Isiah Thomas, Joe Dumars, and Bill Laimbeer played a gritty game that didn’t win them many friends, but it did lead to Detroit sitting on top of the basketball world.

They were also one of the top teams in the NBA during the mid-2000s. Detroit stunned the heavily favored Los Angeles Lakers in the 2004 NBA Finals, and the Pistons made it to at least the Eastern Conference Finals for five straight years. There wasn’t a superstar on those teams, just a talented collection of five players that had great chemistry in Ben Wallace, Rip Hamilton, Rasheed Wallace, Tayshaun Prince, and Chauncey Billups.
