Cleveland Cavaliers vs Detroit Pistons 1/27/2020 Betting Odds
Cleveland Cavaliers Betting
The Cavaliers’ misery seems no end after suffering another defeat against their Central Division rivals, the Chicago Bulls, 118-106, on Saturday. Kevin Love had a double-double with 20 points and 11 boards. Cedi Osman and Collin Sexton also recorded 18 points each, while Larry Nance racked up 15 points and 11 boards off the bench. Cleveland shot 50 percent from the field but turned the ball over 21 times in the game.
Players to Watch: Collin Sexton (19.3 PPG, 3.3 RPG and 2.4 APG)
Kevin Love (17.4 PPG, 10.0 RPG, and 2.8 APG)
Darius Garland (12.3 PPG, 1.9 RPG, and 3.6 APG)
Detroit Pistons Betting
The Detroit Pistons suffered back-to-back losses to the Memphis Grizzlies, 125-112, and the Brooklyn Nets, 121-111. Derrick Rose continued to be phenomenal in both games, recording 22 points and 8 assists against the Grizz and tallying 27 points and 6 assists vs. the Nets. But it’s evident the Pistons really missed more firepower following the injury to All-Star forward Blake Griffin.
Players to Watch: Derrick Rose (18.8 PPG, 2.5 RPG and 6.0 APG)
Andre Drummond (17.3 PPG, 15.8 RPG, and 2.7 APG)
Markieff Morris (11.9 PPG, 3.9 RPG, and 1.5 APG)

Cleveland Cavaliers vs Detroit Pistons Betting Picks
The Cavaliers are 2-8 in their last 10 games; the Pistons are 4-6. Online bookmakers are bullish on Detroit’s chance of claiming their third win in their regular-season series given Cleveland’s current form. Moreover, Andre Drummond will be playing in his second game after suffering a mouth injury last week.
Moneyline: Bet on the Pistons at -275. The Pistons’ defense had been spotty in their last two losses but I feel the tandem of Derrick Rose and Andre Drummond will have big performances against one of the worst defensive teams in the league.
ATS: Back on the Cavaliers to cover the 6.5-point spread. Detroit is 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games, while Cleveland is 5-5.
TOTALs: Pick the OVER at 223 points. As I said, the Pistons weren’t defending well in the last two games and I can see that as their Achilles Heel against the Cavs. Expect a high-scoring game with little defenses in this game.
Score Prediction: 120 – 117 Pistons
