Meanwhile, Detroit has now dropped each of its last five games thanks to a 118-97 loss to the Toronto Raptors on Friday. Which team will get back on track with a victory?

Pistons vs. Bucks Prediction & Pick

A road loss to the Nuggets was just a bump in the road for a Bucks team that checks in 1.5 games up over the Boston Celtics for the top seed in the Eastern Conference. Milwaukee has been relying on a balanced attack all year long as it ranks third in defensive efficiency and 12th in offensive efficiency.

Head coach Mike Budenholzer's squad should have no trouble bouncing back with a big performance against a Pistons' defense that is allowing 118.6 points per game on the season (No. 29 in NBA). Not even home court can save Detroit here considering it sports a 9-29 record at Little Caesars Arena.

Milwaukee has won 19 of its last 20 games against Detroit, so back the Bucks with confidence.

Final Score Prediction: Pistons: 105 | Bucks: 130

Pistons vs. Bucks Best Bet

This one is simple as the Bucks are one of the best teams in the NBA right now and have their eyes set on winning a title. That same thing cannot be said about the Pistons. Milwaukee has every reason to end this one early in hopes of getting its stars some much-needed rest during the fourth quarter.

The Bucks are a ridiculous 15-4 against the spread (ATS) in their last 19 games against the Pistons. Not only that, but Milwaukee's last six wins against Detroit have come by an average of 21.0 points. The Pistons are 0-5 ATS in their last five games overall and should be blown out of the water tonight.

Bet: Milwaukee Bucks -17.5 (-106)
