Most people who follow the NBA are well aware of the incredible surge put on by the Miami Heat as they have made their bid for playoff spot. This is a team that finished the first half of the season with an 11-30 record, but they are 24-8 so far in the second half of the schedule, and they have made that long climb into playoff position. Now, with nine games left in the regular season, they have to do enough to stay there. And one of the teams they are trying to hold off – the Detroit Pistons – will play host to them on Tuesday night, in a game beginning at 7:35 PM ET at the Palace of Auburn Hills. BetAnySports and pay per head customers, who have a lot of options, including great Asian US casino action that does not require a download, can also place wagers while the game is in progress, utilizing the state-of-the-art software available through Live Betting Ultra.

NBA Betting Matchup: Miami Heat at Detroit Pistons

Miami is going through a brief rough patch at the moment, losing three of its last four games, but in general there’s not a lot to complain about. They will just have to compensate for a couple of different things – an injury to Dion Waiters’ ankle, which is about to keep him out of his fifth straight game, and a lingering foot injury on the part of point guard Goran Dragic, which is really slowed him down on the defensive end. Dragic often takes care of the best scoring guard on the other side, and we have seen irruption’s by Damien Lillard of the Portland Trail Blazers (49 points) and demo hard to Rosen of the Toronto Raptors (40 points) over the last four games. The absence of Waiters also affects the offense, because not only does he shoot well from beyond the arc (just under 40%), he also is a great penetrator, giving the Heat sort of a “double-point guard” effect.

Stan Van Gundy, who used to be the head coach of the Heat, has a lot of reason to be frustrated with his team, which made the playoffs last season. As BetAnySports patrons may have noticed, the Pistons have dropped seven of their last eight games, and it’s the way they are losing that has their fans are alarmed. Just take the last three games, for example – these came against Chicago, Orlando and New York – all of whom are currently outside the playoff lineup in the East. And Detroit lost those games by a combined 64 points. Reggie Jackson, who sat out the 109-95 loss to the Knicks on Monday, may be held out of this game as well, as Van Gundy has acknowledged he’s got a sore knee and has been suffering from a lot of fatigue.

Detroit won the first two meetings between the squads, but Miami got some payback on their home floor on January 28, turning back Detroit by a 116-103 score. The Pistons have played six of their last seven games under the total, and have to consider this one of their more important games of the season, as they can climb to within a half-game of that eighth and final playoff spot with a victory.
