5* NBA BEST BET
Miami vs. Detroit,
01/25/2012 19:30 EDT,
Score: 101 - 98
Point Spread: -8/-107 Miami
The Heat come into tonight's game off two less than impressive performances. They lost at home to Milwaukee 82-91 on Sunday and then struggled to hold off the Cavaliers at home 92-85 last night. Look for the Heat to take out their frustration against a bad Detroit team.
The Pistons have just two wins in their last 13 games. On Monday they were absolutely clobbered by Oklahoma City 79-99. Making things even harder on Detroit is a long list of injuries. While they are expected to have Rodney Stuckey back in the lineup tonight, they will be without key contributors in Charlie Villanueva, Will Bynum, and Ben Gordon.
Miami is 10-0 ATS in road games after allowing 85 points or less over the last 2 seasonsm winning by an average of 14-points in this situation. Miami is also 21-9 ATS in their last 30 games as a road favorite of 5.0-10.5 and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games vs. a team with a winning % below .400. BET THE HEAT!
