Who the Public Likes: Detroit. As of Friday afternoon, 79 percent of public bets have come in on the Pistons. Online wagers have also seen 58 percent of bets in favor of the over.

Who We Like: The Pistons won the first meeting this season by a score of 95-87 at Los Angeles in October. The Clippers are 5-4-1 ATS in the last 10 meetings, while the over has gone 6-3-1. Los Angeles enters having won two in a row and four of five. The Clippers are 5-5 ATS in the spread in their last 10 games and the under is 7-3. Detroit enters on a five-game winning streak, although it only covered the spread in two of those games. The Pistons are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 contests, while the over is 7-3.

Detroit has shown to have a strong home-court advantage with Griffin in the lineup and he'll be heavily motivated for this one. It's a short spread and hard to ignore how much better the Pistons look with him in the lineup. Detroit will technically be short-handed after making a couple trades yesterday, but Willie Reed was only seeing limited minutes and Brice Johnson had yet to appear in a game before being dealt yesterday. Both of those players had been acquired as additional pieces in the Griffin trade.
