The Detroit Pistons' over/under regular season win total has been set at 25.5 on Caesars Sportsbook.

That is the third-lowest win total among the 30 NBA teams, besting Orlando (23.5) and Oklahoma City (22.5).

Both the Pistons' over and under are set at -110, meaning a $110 bet would yield a $100 profit. They must play at least 79 games, per the sportsbook.

DraftKings has the Pistons' win total set at 24.5 (-120 on over; +100 under).

The Pistons' 2021-22 schedule, released Friday by the NBA, starts with a home-and-home against the Chicago Bulls, Oct. 20 in Detroit and Oct. 23 in Chicago.

The Pistons' opening night lineup likely will feature Cade Cunningham and Killian Hayes in the backcourt, with Saddiq Bey and Jerami Grant at forward, and Isaiah Stewart at center.

The Bulls will also feature a new-look lineup with Lonzo Ball, Zach LaVine, DeMar DeRozan, Patrick Williams and Nikola Vucevic.

The Pistons' championship odds are 500-to-1, tied for the lowest with Cleveland, Houston, Orlando and OKC.

The Brooklyn Nets, who have the highest win total at 54.5, are the championship favorite at +225 ($2.25 profit for every $1 bet), followed by the Los Angeles Lakers (+400 or 4-to-1), defending champion Milwaukee Bucks (+800) and Golden State Warriors (+1000). The Western Conference champion Phoenix Suns are +1500.
