Detroit Pistons vs. Milwaukee Bucks NBA Free Pick
Play: Milwaukee Bucks +1.5.
For a number of different reasons I think the home side is worth a second look in this one. As I like to say, desperation breeds motivation, in my opinion the Bucks will clearly be the “hungrier” team here.
Detroit has won seven of its last eight on the road and is coming off a 128-118 win over Orlando on Wednesday. It’s not hard to imagine the Pistons coming into this one a tiny bit complacent. Conversely, Milwaukee will be extremely focused, it’s lost six of its last seven in front of the home town crowd.
The Bucks have to be feeling pretty confident that they can bounce back here though, they’ve already taken two off of the Pistons this year and will be extra motivated to atone for a listless 101-99 loss at home to Utah on Thursday: “This has been happening to us, losing these home games,” Bucks’ guard Jared Dudley said last night. “We understand we don’t have a huge home-court advantage because we’ve got to win fans over, keep winning, keep playing hard, and that will come.”
Note that Detroit is just 3-4 ATS vs. division opponents this year, while Milwaukee is 3-1 ATS this season off an upset loss as a favorite. While I obviously feel the outright win isn’t out of the question in this one, I will in the end recommend grabbing as many points as you can with the BUCKS.
