Pistons vs. Cavaliers Prediction & Pick

Both sides in this matchup are dealing with a slew of injuries. Cleveland will be without Caris LeVert and Kevin Love, while Jarrett Allen is considered day-to-day. Detroit is missing Saddiq Bey, Isaiah Stewart and most importantly, Cade Cunningham.

Both squads have winning records against the spread this season, although the Cavs' 11-7 ATS mark tops the Pistons at 11-9. Detroit's offense, which only rates 23rd in overall rating this season, will struggle without their floor general Cunningham and this games gets out of hand quickly.

Final Score Prediction: Cavaliers: 120 | Pistons: 101
