2 units on Cleveland -2.5 (-115) (risk 2 to return 3.74) RESULT: LOSS
Detroit has eight players on the injured list and the Pistons have lost four of their past five games, including 121-100 at Washington, while allowing 53.2-percent shooting on Saturday. Cleveland has covered the number four of its past seven games and it has won and covered the past four meetings with Detroit. The Cavaliers have gotten the money six of their last eight games vs. teams with losing records, and the Pistons are 2-5-1 ATS their last eight games as underdogs. It might sound unbelievable, but the Cavaliers have an outside chance of a playoff spot in this season's expanded field. Detroit is playing for a lottery pick and that is the difference in each team's motivation factor. Take the Cavaliers as my NBA Game of the Month.
