The Cleveland Cavaliers are playing better basketball as of late, but the Detroit Pistons have fared well against them in head-to-head competition this season. The Cavs face a stiff test.

Why Cleveland Will Win

When football betting gurus with relatively minimal basketball expertise assess the chances of the Cavaliers in this game, they're going to point out that Cleveland has really improved over the past two and a half weeks. The Cavaliers have ratcheted up their level of play, especially at the defensive end of the floor.

Cleveland has won four of its last six games, beginning with a gritty 93-88 win in Portland against the Portland Trail Blazers (a team with a winning record) on Jan. 16. The Cavaliers have shown a lot of the backbone that was missing in the first one and a half months of their season. They were 5-23 on Dec. 21, having won only three times between Nov. 5 and Dec. 20. Over the past five weeks, however, they are 8-10, with this recent six-game stretch being their most fruitful period of the season. In these four recent wins dating back to Jan. 16, the Cavaliers are getting the job done on defense. Cleveland held its opponent under 100 points in three of the four wins. In the fourth game, the Cavaliers exploded for 113 points against Milwaukee.

The Detroit Pistons have, in their own right, rebounded from a terrible November and have played a lot better over the past month. However, Cleveland's upswing is a little more pronounced than Detroit's upswing. The Cavaliers have been beating better teams; Detroit has been fattening up on an Orlando team that has won only twice since Dec. 19. Cleveland is playing better at the present moment. Also, Cleveland will have two days off in advance of this game, while Detroit will get only one day off.

Why Detroit Will Win

Even if you don't care for online casino games, you have to like Detroit's chances at home this Friday against Cleveland. The Pistons have won each of the previous two meetings between these teams this season, taking one contest at home and winning a second engagement in Cleveland. The interesting thing to point out about the two games is that they were played at different tempos. Detroit won at home by an 89-79 score and then prevailed in Ohio by a 104-97 count, demonstrating an ability to win while playing different styles. When a team demonstrates superiority over and against an opponent in multiple forms and fashions, it's an indication that real matchup advantages exist. Cleveland has been able to figure out Central Division foe Milwaukee, beating the Bucks multiple times this season, but the pairing with Detroit cuts the Pistons' way.

Who Will Win

It’s not going to be a blowout, but Detroit has to feel confident against Cleveland in the final minutes of regulation. The Pistons will carry the play in the fourth quarter and dig out a hard-earned win.
