Who the Public Likes: As of Saturday morning, 72 percent of public bets have been placed on the Spurs.

Injury Report: Rudy Gay has a heel injury for the Spurs and will miss the next couple weeks. Avery Bradley has missed the last week-plus and is questionable Saturday with a groin injury. Reggie Jackson sprained his ankle two games ago and is out until approximately mid-February. Jon Leuer is out a couple more weeks with a sprained ankle.

Who the Trends Like: The under is 4-0 in the last four meetings. San Antonio is 5-1 ATS in the last six meetings. The over is 6-2 in the last eight meetings in Detroit.

Who We Like: San Antonio has won six of its last seven games and aside from Gay, it should have all its pieces in play here. The Spurs are always a tough team to gauge when it comes to rest, so keep an eye out closer to tip-off. Kawhi Leonard is back in the fold, but not quite at 100 percent yet. A pace down game often benefits the Pistons and with what should be one of their bigger home crowds of the season, it's hard not to take the points even with a couple injuries in the backcourt. Expect Andre Drummond to have a monster game as San Antonio has no one who can quite match up with him.
