Free Detroit Pistons vs. Cleveland Cavaliers NBA Prediction:
If you’ve been watching the 2022-23 NBA season, you’ve seen that there haven’t been as many unabashed tankers in the Victor Wembanyama Sweepstakes as we thought.
That said, the Detroit Pistons have been leading the effort, and they enter this game with the second-longest losing streak SU behind only the Houston Rockets.
Additionally, they have the worst record out East and will no doubt have one of the top odds in the lottery.
No Question Here
Right now, there’s no reason to trust the Pistons. None of that is to take away from what Cleveland is doing, sitting in the No. 4 seed out East. But we’ve reached a point where a 14-point spread against the Pistons doesn’t feel silly, unrealistic or anything but expected.
All in all, a healthy Cavs team will give the Pistons fit early and often.
Overall, you can expect wins for Cleveland on Saturday—both straight up and against the spread.
