The Pistons are still in solid footing for the NBA betting post season but they are not playing particularly well and are fortunate to be stationed in the weak eastern conference. Detroit has an overall record of 36-37 straight up and just 31-42 on their NBA basketball bets.
The Pistons enter action for this game having lost 4 out of their last 5 NBA basketball bets. Detroit does have most of its success on NBA basketball bets in road games, however, as they are 19-16 against the spread in away action.
The Pistons have been trending heavily “over” recently on their NBA basketball bets as they have gone under the total in just 2 out of their last 12 games. Detroit’s weakness is their inept offense which is ranked 28th in the league. Their 7th ranked defense is what has kept them in playoff contention.
Their leading scorer, Tayshaun Prince, was averaging a mediocre 14.4 points per game. The Cleveland Cavaliers have been on a blistering pace on their NBA basketball bets for most of the season. The Cavaliers were, in fact, having a NBA betting success rate that was unsustainable and have cooled off as of late.
The Cavaliers have an overall mark of 60-13 straight up and 45-28 on their NBA basketball bets. Cleveland has, however, gotten the cash in just 3 out of their last 9 NBA basketball bets. The Cavaliers have been a highly profitable home team with a mark of 25-11 on NBA basketball bets as a host.
Cleveland has also been a reliable chalk with a mark of 40-24 against the spread when laying the lumber. The Cavaliers have a comfortable 5 game advantage over the defending world champion Boston Celtics for the top spot in the eastern conference and home court advantage for the playoffs that comes with it.
