Detroit Pistons vs Milwaukee Bucks betting tips and predictions for Wednesday’s NBA game. The Milwaukee Bucks look to win their 5th game in a row as they host one of the worst teams in the NBA the Detroit Pistons. Read on for all our free predictions and betting tips.
Isaiah Stewart will miss his 2nd game in a row due to a suspension for his altercation with LeBron James on Sunday. The Pistons didn’t do well without him on Monday against the Miami Heat as they lost 100-92. It was their 13th loss in 17 games as they ended a 5-game home stand with just 1 win over Indiana. Now they hit the road for their next 5 games starting tonight against Milwaukee. The Bucks have already beaten them once this season, it finished 117-89 back in the beginning of November. In last night’s loss against Miami it was only Jerami Grant who played well with 21 points and 7 rebounds. Rookie Cade Cunningham continued to struggle as he finished the game with 6 points on just 2-for-10 shooting. The struggles don’t stop there though, the Pistons are without a win in their last 11 road games at Milwaukee and they’ve covered the spread just 4 times in their last 20 games.
The Bucks are as healthy as they’ve been all season with their big 3 finally playing on a consistent basis. They’ve connected 4 wins in a row and their latest win was against the Orlando Magic last night 123-92. Milwaukee was up by 41 points after the first 24 minutes of play, so the starters took the rest of the night off as neither of them played more than 25 minutes. The Bucks are still without Brook Lopez and Dante DiVincenzo, but with the lack of rebounding the Pistons are facing tonight they might not need them anyway. In their last 9 games against opponents from the Central Division the Bucks have gone 7-2 ATS.
Blowouts are never easy to predict, but the Pistons are just struggling way too much at the moment. Both teams played last night, but unlike the Pistons, Milwaukee has the depth to cope with that a lot better. Take into account Detroit is also without their best rebounders, I think this is an easy win for Milwaukee. Take them to cover.

Milwaukee Bucks – Detroit Pistons Predictions
Bucks -14 Point Spread is available at -110 odds on bet365
Detroit averages 99 points per game which is 29th in the NBA at the moment, but even that is going to be tough to reach with so many injuries against one of the top defensive teams in the NBA. They are also dead last in the NBA in three-point shooting connecting on just 30.1% of their attempts. Over their last 3 games the Bucks are holding opponents to just 96.3 points while scoring 112 per game over the same stretch of games. Most of their games have been low scoring this season, 12 of their last 15 have gone under the total, including 8 of 9 played at the Fiserv Forum. The last 2 of 3 meetings have also gone under the total with the Pistons shooting a pedestrian 36% in those games. Milwaukee is going to win big here, but not big enough to push us over the total. So let’s back the under in this one.
