Prediction

The Heat have been up and down this season but they have been playing better lately as they got back some of their best players. The Pistons are one of the worst teams in the league and have lost 7 of their last 10 games and are ranking 29th in defense allowing 118 points per game. Miami has dominated Detroit at home beating them in 5 of the last 6 games at home but they looked awful in their last game as they scored only 93 points. The Heat are the better team but the Pistons can keep it close enough to cover the spread.

PICK: Pistons +8.5 (-110)
