Bucks end win streak

Milwaukee had their 6-game win streak come to an end on Sunday in a 118-112 loss at Oklahoma City. The Bucks have failed to cover the spread in three straight games. Milwaukee is 35-13 on the season, 13-9 on the road, 26-19-3 against the spread and 25-23 with the under.

The Bucks have one of the top offenses in the NBA, ranking second at 117.3 points per game. They also lead the league in rebounding with 49 per game. Defensively, Milwaukee is holding opponents to 107.6 points per game while holding opponents to a league-best 43.1 percent shooting. Giannis Antetokounmpo is leading the team with 26.6 points, 12.7 rebounds and 5.8 assists per game while Khris Middleton is adding 17.4 points per contest.

Pistons looking for anything

Detroit is coming off a 106-101 loss at Dallas, their third loss in four games. The Pistons are now 21-27 overall, 13-11 at home, 22-24-2 against the spread and 28-20 with the under.

The Pistons are respectable on defense, holding opponents to 108.5 points per game while limiting opponents to 32.8 percent shooting from the arc. Offensively, Detroit is averaging just 105.9 points per game while shooting only 43.3 percent from the field. Reggie Bullock is doubtful to play tonight due to an ankle injury. He is the team’s best outside shooter. Blake Griffin is leading the team with 26.5 points, 8.1 rebounds and 5.2 assists per game while Andre Drummond is adding 16.5 points and 14.9 rebounds per game.

NBA Betting Trends


The Bucks are 12-2 against the spread in their last 14 games following a loss and 4-1-1 ATS in their last six division games.


The Pistons are 1-4 ATS in their last five games when playing on 3 days of rest or more and 0-3-1 ATS in their last four division games.


The Bucks have been able to have their way with Detroit this season, going 3-0 and 2-0-1 against the spread in the three meetings. The push came in Detroit, but the Pistons are without one of their top shooters tonight in Bullock. Milwaukee has too much offense for Detroit to compete tonight and Milwaukee’s ability to rebound takes away a big strength for the Pistons as well.

NBA Prediction: Milwaukee Bucks -6.5
