Milwaukee is suffering through a championship hangover right now with a 3-4 start to the season. That includes a current 3-game skid but there’s no better way to get back on the winning track like a visit from 1-5 Detroit.
The Pistons finally welcomed #1 pick Cade Cunningham to the team on Friday night and his presence paid instant dividends in a 110-103 win against Orlando. Detroit got their doors blown off the next night having to visit Brooklyn on the back to back, falling 117-91.
The Bucks offense hasn’t looked great during their three game losing streak, failing to score 100 points twice and with the high water mark being a 113-108 loss to the Timberwolves. As a result Milwaukee has fallen to 11th place in the Western Conference.
To be fair the Bucks have been besieged by injuries so far in this young season. Rodney Hood and Bobby Portis missed time earlier in the year, Donte Divincenzo has yet to play with a foot injury, while Brook Lopez and Jrue Holiday also remain out.
The Bucks laundry list of injuries is getting longer as now Khris Middleton has entered the health and safety protocols and will be out for the foreseeable future. That leaves Giannis Antetokounmpo, his brother Thanasis, and a bunch of random pieces.
Giannis (knee) is also on the injury report but is probable to play in Tuesday night’s matchup. The good news is you don’t have to be great to beat Detroit right now, and the Bucks -4.5 is some really solid value on the defending champs.
The Pistons finally got into the win column on Friday but they might not be as bad as their 1-5 record would suggest. Detroit’s five losses this season have come against Chicago (2), Atlanta, Philadelphia, and Brooklyn – all teams that looked destined for the postseason.
Of course Milwaukee is right up there with those elite level teams – at least they will be when healthy. With so many Bucks players banged up there may be no better time than now for Detroit to pull off the upset.
#1 pick Cunningham made his debut on Friday vs. the Magic but it was very underwhelming as he scored 2 points on 1-8 shooting including going 0-5 from three. He rested a problematic ankle in Saturday’s loss to the Nets but should be good to go for the Bucks matchup.
Detroit looks like they have the post play to actually stay in this contest. Jerami Grant had 22/7/5 in the win over Orlando and the reliable Kelly Olynyk scored in double figures off the bench in five straight games before getting restricted minutes in Saturday’s back to back.

Free Milwaukee Bucks vs. Detroit Pistons NBA Prediction:
The Bucks injury list is long, but they still have arguably the best player in the world. Is that enough though? Detroit has looked iffy to start the season but they’ve also been matched up against a lot of very tough teams.
Ultimately the Pistons post game gives them a great chance to win this one. Cunningham should be better with a game under his belt as well and Detroit could be pushing towards the SU win.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Pistons +4.5
Detroit on the moneyline at +165 has a nice ROI as well.
