Why Milwaukee Bucks are a good bet -6?

Milwaukee’s 35-13 record is as good or better than any other record in the league. That includes having a better record than Golden State. The Bucks are winning due to a brilliant offense that hits the boards on both sides of the court.

The Bucks rank first in offensive rebounds per game. That gives them an edge over almost every team they play. Detroit doesn’t stand much chance of keeping this close.

Why Detroit Pistons are a good bet +6?

Are the Pistons a safe NBA betting pick for Tuesday night vs the Bucks?

The Pistons have the type of frontcourt that could hang with Milwaukee. Andrew Drummond at center and Blake Griffin at power forward are both capable of plugging up the lane.

Even though the Bucks will try to hit the boards and grab offensive rebounds, Drummond and Griffin will block out. Once Milwaukee can’t grab rebounds with success, the Pistons will swing the game in their favor.

Bucks vs Pistons Final NBA Betting Analysis

Detroit’s an okay basketball team. They’re awful against the spread, though. They’re even worse against the spread versus a team that wins a lot of games. More importantly, they lost by 23 points to the Bucks the last time they faced them.

Milwaukee always bounces back after a loss. The Bucks are a legit contender for the NBA title. Every player on the team has a role, and there’s no team in the NBA with better chemistry. Bucks should roll to an easy win and cover.
