Reasons To Avoid Milwaukee

Milwaukee's dominance against their divisional rivals will place them in a position to be overvalued. When it is added into the mix that the Bucks are the hottest team in the NBA right now, they are all the more prone for an overlay. Nothing typifies this narrative more than the Bucks going 5-5 ATS despite winning all of their previous ten contests.

Reasons To Back Detroit

Detroit remains one of the worst road teams in the NBA in terms of wins and losses, but they might have changed their stars after last night. Nevertheless, the Pistons are quite a formidable foe on their own floor as they are 6-4 SU in Motown. In fact, Detroit wins games at home by an average margin of 6.8 points while Milwaukee bodes a +9.9 margin away from home. This sets up Detroit to be taking back an advantageous number in this position.

Bucks at Pistons Prediction 12/4/19

Detroit will come into this game looking to turn the tide in this contest. The Pistons will at least want to look like somewhat of a threat to a team that has pushed them around. However, I think an upset may actually be brewing. Given the fact Milwaukee has pretty much blown through everything it has come across along with how they have mangled the Pistons as of late, the Bucks may be caught taking the Pistons lightly. With respect to the line and these anecdotes, Milwaukee may look like a lock here. But there is no such thing. Grab the points.
