NBA betting on Sunday includes a nationally televised game on ESPN as the Cleveland Cavaliers host the Detroit Pistons.
The Cavaliers rarely lose at home and they are favored in basketball betting odds against the Pistons. NBA betting scheduling information shows that the Pistons are beginning a five-game road trip tonight. NBA betting trends slightly favor the Cavaliers in this matchup.
Cleveland has won and covered the NBA odds in 6 of the last 10 meetings against Detroit. At Cleveland, the Cavaliers have won four of the last five games against Detroit. Basketball betting results tell us that the teams have already met twice this season in Detroit and the teams split with Cleveland winning 90-80 earlier this month and Detroit winning 96-89 back in November.
The Pistons have been a much better team versus the NBA odds on the road than at home. On the road the Pistons are just above .500 so they do have a shot here against Cleveland versus the NBA betting line. The Pistons win games with defense because their offense is one of the worst in the NBA. Allen Iverson leads the team in scoring as NBA betting statistics show, but overall Detroit struggles to score consistently.
Cleveland has a dominating defense that has led the league this season as NBA betting stats show. The Cavaliers have been extremely tough at home versus the NBA betting line. They are 19-6 versus the NBA betting pointspread at home. LeBron James continues to lead the Cavaliers in scoring and he has been among the Top 3 in the league most of the season.
There is a big under NBA betting trend in this game. The last six games between the two teams have gone under the NBA betting total. At Cleveland, three of the last five have stayed under the basketball betting total. This game could also stay under the basketball betting number considering the Cavaliers have the best defense in the league while Detroit is not far behind, ranking in the Top 10.
