Milwaukee Bucks Betting

The Milwaukee Bucks emerged as the No.1 team in the NBA at the halfway point of the season. Giannis Antetokounmpo is on track of repeating as the league Most Valuable Player, pumping up 30 points, 13 rebounds and five assists per game. Milwaukee is looking like a team destined for another deep run in the playoff this spring with only a handful of teams possessing the tools to stop their well-oiled basketball club.

Players to Watch: Giannis Antetokounmpo (30.0 PPG, 13.5 RPG and 5.8 APG)

Khris Middleton (20.4 PPG, 6.1 RPG, and 4.3 APG)

Eric Bledsoe (15.7 PPG, 4.8 RPG and 5.3 APG)

Detroit Pistons Betting

The Detroit Pistons are searching for answers and looking for wins since parting ways with former All-Star center Andre Drummond. Detroit has now clearly embraced rebuilding mode following a series of moves that gutted out their roster. This week, Reggie Jackson became the latest player to leave the franchise after he agreed to a buyout. He’s expected to join the Los Angeles Clippers, leaving Derrick Rose as the No.1 playmaker of the team.

Players to Watch: Derrick Rose (18.5 PPG, 2.5 RPG, 5.8 APG)

Markieff Morris (11.0 PPG, 3.9 RPG, 1.6 APG)

John Henson (12.0 PPG, 4.0 RPG, 1.0 APG)

Milwaukee Bucks vs Detroit Pistons Betting Picks

Despite coming off a 118-111 loss to the Indiana Pacers just before All-Star break, the Bucks remain the safest bet in NBA Moneyline and NBA parlay betting. Giannis is scheduled to return in the lineup after missing several games to attend the birth of his son.

Moneyline: Bet on the Bucks at -1000. Milwaukee is a cool 45-7 when they enter the game as the favorites. They are also 12-3 on the road against Eastern Conference teams.

ATS: Pick the Bucks to cover the spread. If the spread stays at 13 points, I feel confident of Milwaukee’s capacity to cover the spread. They blew the Pistons by double digits in each of their first two meetings this season.

TOTALs: Back the UNDER at 224 points. The Bucks are going to score. The question is will the severely-handicapped Pistons breach the 100-point mark against one of the top defenses in the league?

Score Prediction: 115 – 97 Bucks
