Who the Public Likes: Detroit. As of Sunday morning, 58 percent of public bets have sided with the Pistons.

Injury Report: Nets guard Jeremy Lin is out for the season with a ruptured patellar tendon suffered in the season opener. For the Pistons, Jon Leuer is out for the season after undergoing ankle surgery. Reggie Jackson is out until mid-February as he recovers from an ankle sprain.

Who the Trends Like: Brooklyn is 9-3 ATS in the last 12 meetings. The over is 26-12 in the last 38 meetings, but the under is 4-1 in the last five meetings in Detroit.

Who We Like: Detroit has been in a tailspin since its fantastic 13-6 start to the season and now would not make the Eastern Conference playoffs if the season ended today. In desperate need to get back on the right track, I think the Pistons do just that today. An early start time plus a Nets team that has no answer inside for Andre Drummond is a recipe for success. Detroit blasted host Brooklyn 114-80 back on Jan. 10. Drummond had 22 points, 20 rebounds, five assists, two steals and two blocked shots in that game.
