The Miami Heat has been playing great this season and has been led by all world player LeBron James. LeBron James is one of the front runners for MVP and is a big reason why the team is 39-15 on the season. Miami sits atop on top of the toughest divisions in the league, but they still have a comfortable 6.5 game lead on the second place Hawks. The Heat did however lose their last game on Friday to the Memphis Grizzlies by a score of 97-82.
Despite struggling this season the Detroit Pistons are still playing hard. The Pistons come in with a disappointing 21-34 record and trail the first place Bulls by 21.5 games in the division. Detroit has been a lot more competitive lately, but they did fall to the Hawks in their last game by a score of 101-96 on Friday night. It is Detroit’s offense that has struggled all season, their defense is actually not that bad as they only give up just about 95 points a game.
The Miami Heat are 17-8 overall in their last 25 games and the under has come in for 8 of the last 12 games overall. The Heat is a striking 17-1 in their last 18 home games and 5-0 vs. the Pistons in their last 5 meetings. The Pistons are just 7-18 ATS in their last 25 games vs. the Heat as well.
This spread is a bit inflated in our eyes, largely because of the fact that the Pistons have been able to keep games close this season. The Heat will win, but definitely take the Pistons to cover this enormous spread at the online sportsbooks.
