How To Bet On Pistons Heat – Heat Look To Cool Down Streaking Pistons At South Beach

Posted by Craig Parsons on 1/23/2013 6:04:34 PM

The defending NBA champion Miami Heat are in line to retake their crown atop the Eastern Conference with the best record this regular season and clinch home court advantage for the playoffs. Lebron James and the Heat would be the sports betting favorites to win it all anyway, but finishing first overall would only solidify that title and give them an even better chance of returning to the NBA Finals. Miami has continued to give the fans at South Beach a show with the best home record in the NBA, and after winning 16 of their first 19 games at the American Airlines Arena, don’t expect them to stumble this Friday when they host the Detroit Pistons.

American Airlines Arena, Detroit, Michigan
NBA Sportsbook Line: Miami – 6.5

The Pistons enter this game at nine games below .500, and for a team that is 12-11 at home that is testament to their awful play on the road. Detroit has lost 14 of its 18 games as the visiting team this season, although they are playing some of their best basketball of the season with seven wins in their last 10 games overall.

NBA Betting Preview: Detroit Pistons

Pistons’ ownership wants the team to compete for a playoff spot now, and that may set the franchise back even further in the long run as the team will once again miss out on a high draft pick by competing for the eighth and final playoff spot. Detroit has narrowed the gap to four games behind the Boston Celtics for the eighth spot, and could close the distance even further if they can only find a way to win on the road. Detroit has played excellent defense as well, ranking eighth in the NBA in points allowed. The problem has been inconsistency at the offense end, where outside of Greg Monroe and Andre Drummond down low, the team has failed to put up big numbers.

NBA Betting Preview: Miami Heat

Unlike in past years when Miami had a top-10 defense that enabled them to get away with more on offense, this team ranks just 12th in points allowed but has averaged 102.1 points per game. The Heat have really struggled on the boards where they rank 30th in the NBA in rebounds per game, and that could be a minor concern up against Monroe and Drummond. Fortunately for Miami Lebron James has averaged a team-high 26.3 points per game and has extended his dominance to lead the team in rebounds and assists as well, while Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh have remained healthy as secondary options.

NBA Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

Detroit has played much more consistent basketball of late and a lot of the credit for that belongs to head coach Lawrence Frank, who has kept the compete level high. Unfortunately for the Pistons, their skill level as a team isn’t nearly as high as it needs to be to make the postseason, and their play on the road will continue to cost them as they match up against the best online betting home team in the NBA in Miami.
