Bet Today's NBA Action

Who the Public Likes: Detroit. As of Sunday morning, 58 percent of public bets have come in on the visiting Pistons.

Injury Report: Pistons point guard Reggie Jackson is out until late February with a sprained ankle. Jon Leuer is out for the season following ankle surgery. For the Cavaliers, Dwyane Wade  missed the last game due to a personal issue and is questionable today.

Who the Trends Like: The under is 4-1 in the last five meetings overall. Detroit is 0-4 ATS in its last four games overall. Cleveland is 4-24 ATS in its last 28 matches against teams with a losing road record.

Who We Like: Both of these teams are a mess right now. Since the game is in Cleveland, I imagine the Cavaliers will dictate the pace and they are also poor defensively. Detroit has played a couple tough defensive teams in its last two games in the Jazz and Thunder, so I imagine it will take advantage of easier looks today. LeBron James took over the last game with a triple-double and he should come through with another huge effort here as his frustration in how the Cavs are playing is showing.
