NBA is back and the Cleveland Cavaliers travel to Detroit to take on the Pistons on Thursday night. These teams have faced two times this season and each one has taken the win at home.
The Cavs ended the first half with a 35-23 record overall and 35-21-2 ATS, they're 4th in the Eastern Conference. The last game they played before the All Star break was against the Hawks and they lost it 116-124.
Cleveland is averaging 106.7 points on 46.6 percent shooting and allowing 102.5 points on 44.2 percent shooting. Darius Garland is averaging 20.3 points and 8 assists, while Jarrett Allen is averaging 16.2 points and 11 rebounds.
In their last 10 games the Cavs are 6-4, averaging 105.1 points, 42.4 rebounds, 24.1 assists, 7.6 steals and 4.2 blocks per game while shooting 46.6% from the field. Their opponents have averaged 103.7 points.
Garland and Levert have already been ruled out for this game. Markkanen has a chance to return.
The Pistons have a 13-45 record and are the second worst team in the league. Detroit has gone 3-7 against division opponents and 7-30 record against opponents over .500.
Bey is shooting 34.6% from beyond the arc with 2.6 made 3-pointers per game for the Pistons, while averaging 15.9 points and 5.8 rebounds. Jerami Grant is averaging 16.1 points over the past 10 games for Detroit.
The Pistons are 2-8 in their last 10 games and averaging 104.9 points, 45.2 rebounds, 24.6 assists, 6.3 steals and 4.5 blocks per game while shooting 42.5% from the field. Their opponents have averaged 116.7 points per game.
Cleveland are 4-2 ATS in their last 6 games.
The total has gone UNDER in 8 of Cleveland's last 12 games.
Detroit are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games.
Detroit are 0-5 SU in their last 5 games at home.
With Garland and Levert out for this game the Under is definitely the best option for me. The Under is cashing the 62% of the time for the Cavs and that's including Garland. The Under has cashed in 7 of 11 times for Detroit when the total was 209 to 212. Take the Under.
PICK: Under 209.5 (-110)
