Giannis Antetokounmpo is averaging 30.8 points and 13.4 rebounds while Khris Middleton is averaging 17.4 points and 5.4 rebounds. Eric Bledsoe is the third double-digit scorer and Brook Lopez is grabbing 4.9 rebounds. The Milwaukee Bucks are shooting 35.1 percent from beyond the arc and 70.9 percent from the free throw line. The Milwaukee Bucks are allowing 37.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 51.7 rebounds per game. The Milwaukee Bucks have won their last five road games.
The Detroit Pistons look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Detroit Pistons are averaging 108.2 points on 47.2 percent shooting and allowing 108.6 points on 46.8 percent shooting. Blake Griffin is averaging 18.5 points and 4.8 rebounds while Andre Drummond is averaging 17.1 points and 17.1 rebounds. Luke Kennard is the third double-digit scorer and Derrick Rose is dishing 5.6 assists. The Detroit Pistons are shooting 39.3 percent from beyond the arc and 74.5 percent from the free throw line.

The Bucks are 21-5-1 ATS in their last 27 vs. NBA Central, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 road games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 Wednesday games. The Pistons are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 home games, 7-18-1 ATS in their last 26 vs. Eastern Conference and 8-21-1 ATS in their last 30 games overall. The Bucks are 3-0-1 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Detroit and 18-7-2 ATS in the last 27 meetings. The over is 5-1 in Pistons last 6 home games. The under is 4-1 in Bucks last 5 games playing on 1 days rest.
The Detroit Pistons are coming off back-to-back wins over the San Antonio Spurs and Cleveland Cavaliers, but those are two losing teams who are getting beat up nightly. I need to see more from the Pistons before I can trust them. The Milwaukee Bucks have not only won 12 straight, but they're winning their last five games by an average of 21.4 points while shooting 51 percent from the field. The Detroit Pistons are 2-4 ATS when an underdog of less than seven points. I'll lay the chalk with the Bucks on the road.
