I'll take the OVER on Bam Adebayo for both scoring 19.5 (+100) and 10.5 rebounds (+100)

Bam is averaging 19.4 points and 10.6 boards per game. But more importantly, Isaiah Stewart and Kelly Olynyk are both out for Detroit. That means Bam will be facing the talent-challenged Trey Lyles at center, with maybe some Luka Garza off the bench.  Yikes. The only worry is it's an early blowout and Miami rests Adebayo. That said, Bam might have season highs before the end of the third quarter.

Bam Adebayo OVER 10.5 Rebounds (+104) at Detroit Pistons – FanDuel Sportsbook, 12:30PM CT

Adebayo's rebounding numbers have been down a bit lately as he's battled through a knee issue, but he looks to have moved past both that and the illness that initially landed him on the injury report heading into the week. The biggest concern here is blowout potential, but even if Adebayo sees less than 30 minutes, I like his chances to pile up rebounds early against a Pistons team playing without both Kelly Olynyk and Isaiah Stewart. We don't yet know who will start for the suspended Stewart, but the only options appear to be Trey Lyles and rookie Luka Garza, so either way Adebayo will be staring down an appealing matchup.
