Detroit Pistons vs Miami Heat 1/16/2021 Betting Odds
Detroit Pistons Betting
The Detroit Pistons have been the bottom-dwelling team for this season and seeing them turn things around is unlikely to happen. Jerami Grant is fitting on his new role as the primary offensive weapon while Blake Griffin and Derrick Rose are just a shell of their former selves. Mason Plumlee has been doing going good but so far, it is Saddiq Bey that is the big surprise and eclipsing the hype on the injured Killian Hayes. Isaac Stewart also had some moments of showing his potential while Josh Jackson is using the opportunity to revive his career and live up to his potential.
Players to watch: J. Grant SF 11 GP 11 GS 36.7 MIN 24.8 PTS 1.1 OR 4.9 DR 6 REB 1.8 AST 1 STL 1.2 BLK 1.5 TO 2.7 PF 1.2 AST/TO 19.81 PER
D. Rose PG 8 GP 0 GS 23.6 MIN 13.9 PTS 0.4 OR 1.6 DR 2 REB 5.4 AST 1 STL 0.4 BLK 2.4 TO 1.4 PF 2.3 AST/TO 15.62 PER

Miami Heat Betting
The Miami Heat are now on back-to-back losses and this team would do whatever it takes to sink further in the standings and enter a losing streak. Duncan Robinson came out leading the team with 22 points and Tyler Herro had 17. The team had a total of eight players on the rotation but managed to keep it close against the Philadelphia 76ers. The Heat will be expecting the same players to suit up against the Detroit Pistons. Kelly Olynyk has been doing well with Precious Achiuwa while Gabe Vincent has been the surprise step-up against the Sixers with 21 points.
Players to Watch: T. Herro PG 10 GP 10 GS 33.7 MIN 17.6 PTS 0.1 OR 6.6 DR 6.7 REB 3.8 AST 0.4 STL 0.1 BLK 2.8 TO 1.6 PF 1.4 AST/TO 12.61 PER
