Prediction

Pistons 113, Heat 111

Money line (ML)

The PISTONS (+195) are a good value on the road against the Heat (-250), who will again be without Bradley and Butler, as they're under quarantine due to the NBA's health and safety protocols. Herro might be able to play, but Leonard has also been ruled out, so essentially Miami will run it back with a similar group that lost 120-100 in the first game of the double dip on Saturday.

Against the spread (ATS)

The PISTONS +6.5 (-110) are a nice play if you're just not feeling Detroit straight up for a second consecutive win on the road in South Florida. The Pistons overall record stinks, to be honest, but they have been cover kings. They're 3-1 ATS across the past four outings, and 6-2 ATS across the past eight contests. Miami has been reeling with short benches lately, and they're just 1-4 SU/ATS across the past five.

Over/Under (O/U)

OVER 218.5 (-110) is a good play. The Over hit in Saturday's game, barely, with a total of 220 points against a number of 217.5. Expect a similar result on Monday, as it won't be a run-and-gun game, which easily cashes a ticket, but it certainly won't be a defensive slog, either, and Miami's D will suffer with Jimmy Buckets still on the mend.
