2 units on Detroit +8.5 (-105) (risk 2 to return 3.9) RESULT: LOSS
Detroit is playing better than it has in several years with a 13-8 record and 12-9 ATS and the Pistons are 4-0-1 ATS the last five meetings with Milwaukee. Detroit does come off a blowout loss to Oklahoma City, but that was in a letdown situation following a huge win over Golden State two nights before, which capped a five-game winning streak for the Pistons. Milwaukee has lost three of its last five when following an overtime loss as an eight-point favorite at New York on Saturday. The Pistons have covered their last four road games and the Bucks are 0-5 ATS their last five games overall. Also, the Bucks are 5-16 ATS their last 21 games after scoring at least 125 points in their previous game. They are also 3-11-1 ATS their last 15 when playing with at least three days rest. Detroit plays up to its competition with a 14-6 ATS record versus teams with a .600 or better winning percentage dating to last season. Take the Pistons.
