MIA vs DET: Pistons on an ATS Roll

Pistons Basketball

Tonight in South Beach the Pistons will hope to build upon a 4-0-1 ATS run when they visit the Heat. The Pistons’ last three games have been decided by three points or less, including a 147-144 quadruple overtime victory over the Bulls on Friday.

Shark Bites
  • Detroit is 3-8 ATS in its last 11 games on the road.
  • Miami is 4-1 SU in its last five games.
  • Andre Drummond recorded 18 points and 20 rebounds vs the Heat on Nov. 25th

Another trend that pops out is five straight OVERs for the Pistons, while Miami has gone OVER in four out of their last five games. Tonight’s game opened with a total of 194, a total these teams failed to surpass in the Pistons’ 104-81 win over the Heat on November 25th. Dwyane Wade had possibly his worst game as a pro, shooting just one for nine, recording only two points in 23 minutes played. Although they’re near the bottom of the league with just 96.8 points per game, the Heat have seen a rise in scoring recently, putting up 100 or more points in four out of their last five games.

Miami has gotten the better of Detroit when the teams meet in South Beach, as they’ve won seven of their last eight contests when hosting the Pistons. Miami has a respectable 12-5 SU home record this season, but are just 4-7-1 ATS in their last 12 home games.
