NBA FREE PICK: Take Milwaukee. According to latest NBA trends, Detroit is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 0 days rest,  2-6 ATS in their last 8 Saturday games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. Eastern Conference and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games vs. a team with a winning S.U. record. Milwaukee is 7-1 ATS in their last 8 when their opponent allows 100 points or more in their previous game, 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games following a SU loss of more than 10 points and 5-2 ATS last 7 in series.

Detroit is coming off a 119-109 win over San Antonio on Friday, getting 5. That broke a three-game losing streak. Milwaukee has lost two straight, falling at Utah, 100-86 on Wednesday, getting 5.5. But the Bucks at least have two days off while Detroit has no rest. Milwaukee no gets a three-game homestand, where they are most comfortable and 13-10 SU. In their last meeting on Jan. 29, Brandon Jennings scored 30 points in a 117-90 win over the Pistons.  Monta Ellis (18.3ppg) and Jennings (18.6ppg) are one of the most explosive backcourts in the league. Larry Sanders (8.5ppg, 8.5rpg, 3.2bpg) should return from a bad fall on his back on Tuesday night, which caused him to miss Wednesday's game against Utah, but wasn't considered serious. The Bucks will have the rest, the guards and enough of a bench to cover the spread.
