Detroit is 16-26 SU and 20-22 ATS; it's coming off an 85-82 loss at Chicago as a 6.5 point underdog on the 23rd. The loss snapped a two game win streak.
The Pistons are getting solid play up and down their lineup though right now, and I believe they'll give Miami everything it can handle tonight.
Will Bynum came off the bench to score 25 points and add 10 assists in his team's 109-99 win over the Heat on December 26th.
And note that Detroit is 10-9 ATS on the road this year, and 11-9 ATS vs. teams with winning records.
Miami is 27-12 SU and 19-20 ATS; it's coming off a 123-116 OT win over Toronto as a 10 point favorite on the 23rd.
Dwayne Wade had 35 points; LeBron James had 31 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds; Ray Allen had 18 points.
Note though that Miami is just 4-6 ATS this season in revenging a loss vs. an opponent.
The Heat have a bad habit of overlooking their competition, and are also just 17-20 ATS this year when playing the role of favorite.
The oddsmakers are drastically underestimating this improving Pistons team, and I believe the Heat will as well; grab the points!
