Bet on Bucks vs. Pistons

The Pistons looked great on their road trip until a dud at the Lakers, upsetting the Clippers and Warriors on back-to-back nights. But with their struggles against the Bucks recently coupled with Milwaukee finding more help for Antetokounmpo, the smart play here is to take the two points given to the visitors.
