The Detroit Pistons will be on the road to take on the Milwaukee Bucks on Monday, January 3rd.
The tip-off is set for 8:00 ET from Fiserv Forum.
Milwaukee started off as a 15 point favorite and that number is now up to 16. The total has gone from 223.5 to 225.5.
Things have not gone well at all this year for the Pistons. It is going to be a very, very long season for them.
This team has lost three of their last four games. If things go as people seem to think on Monday, it will be four of their past five.
When it comes to the worst teams in the league, this team has been in that conversation all year long. The only team that may be worse than them is the Orlando Magic.
There have not been all that many bright spots for this team, but one of them has been the rookie, Cade Cunningham. He certainly looks like he will be a very good player for years to come, but they are going to have to add some pieces around him if they want to be better than they currently are.
Detroit last played on January 1st, where they beat the San Antonio Spurs by a score of 117-116. That must of felt good for them after they played the same team just a bit ago and lost by a score of 144-109.
In the win on Saturday, the leading scorer was Hamidou Diallo, who had 34 points and 14 rebounds. Also, Luka Garza had 20 points and 14 boards.
The Bucks have had a good season so far. It does not appear that they are going through the championship hangover.
Milwaukee comes into this contest with a record of 25-13, which puts them in 3rd place in the Eastern Conference. If they keep playing how they have, it is very possible that they could get to the number one seed.
A year after winning the title, it seems very possible that they could do so again. It would not shock me if they were the team to get out of the East, but it would be very hard against a team like the Warriors or Jazz from the Western Conference.
This crew took care of the New Orleans Pelicans on Saturday by a score of 136-113. They did just what they had to do against a team they are much better than.
Giannis led his team in scoring on Saturday with 35 points, 16 rebounds, and 10 assists. He has is having another great season, which should surprise absolutely nobody.

Detroit Pistons vs. Milwaukee Bucks NBA Analysis:
The Bucks have been playing some good basketball and I would not be surprised if that continues on Monday. I just have a hard time seeing them slow down, especially when they are facing a team such as Detroit.
This is a game that Milwaukee needs to take advantage of. It is not very often that you get to face the worst team in basketball, so when you do, you have better capitalize.
For a while, it was very hard for the Bucks to get all of their main players on the floor at the same time, but it looks a lot better now. A combination of the virus and injuries sidelined some of their key people, which is never a good thing.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Bucks ATS
I look for the Bucks to keep rolling in this game. Even though they are facing a team they are much better than, I do not feel they will approach the game any differently. I feel they will be locked in from the minute the game starts.
Milwaukee has been good at covering spreads as of late and I think that will continue in this one. I know that 16 is a high number here, but I like it because I do not see this being all that close of a game.
