Friday’s slate is packed with 11 games highlighted by the Miami Heat and the Los Angeles Lakers facing off at Staples Center.

Our NBA crew details how they are betting tonight’s slate with picks on three specific games:

  • 7 p.m. ET: Memphis Grizzlies at Orlando Magic 
  • 7 p.m. ET: Detroit Pistons at Indiana Pacers 
  • 10:30 p.m. ET: Miami Heat at LA Lakers 

Odds as of Friday afternoon. Check out PointsBet, where Action Network users can access an exclusive promotion to get a 200% deposit match (deposit $50, bet with $150).

Brandon Anderson: Pacers at Pistons

  • Spread: Pacers -7
  • Over/Under: 210
  • Time: 7 p.m. ET

If it feels like the Pistons and Pacers play once a week, it’s because they basically have at this point. This is already the third meeting between these two teams.

That should have been a big advantage for the Pacers with Pistons forward Blake Griffin out this first month, but instead, Detroit won each of the first two meetings.
