Milwaukee are 5-0 SU in their last 5 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Milwaukee's last 5 games against Detroit.

Prediction

The Bucks continue to stay hot and haven't lost a game yet this season and it's hard to believe the Pistons will be the first team to beat them as they're 1-17 in their last 18 games against the Bucks. However, the Pistons have been playing good offense and just beat the champions in their last game so they might get here with a lot of confidence and 13 points are too many to cover for every team. I'll give it a shot with the Pistons to cover the spread.

PICK: Pistons +13 (-110)
