Bet of The Day: 20th Feb – NBA
THU, FEB 20TH – 7:00PM ET:
MILWAUKEE BUCKS @DETROIT PISTONS,
This is the first game after the break but we are not expecting too much to change. Milwaukee have been awesome this season and Detroit have been getting worse.
The Milwaukee Bucks win on the road by an average of 11 points, while the Detroit Pistons are 11-18 ATS at home and 21-35-1 ATS overall. Detroit are just not good enough and their roster got even worse with the release of Reggie Jackson. The Bucks will win comfortably and cover the spread of 13 points.
BET OF THE DAY:
- MIL Bucks Against the spread (-13) @ -110
- Under 224.5 Points @ -115

Against The Spread Pick
Although Milwaukee did lose their last game before the break at Indy they have been awesome all season with just eight losses overall! Giannis was brilliant in the All-Star game but there has been more than enough time to recuperate for this one. He recently had a child though so skipping this one is possible. Might not affect the outcome but could affect the spread. Detroit are a mess as Blake Griffin is hurt, Andre Drummond was traded and now Reggie Jackson has been bought out. He has been a consistent disappointment but there is no doubt that he is an NBA player and someone who could score. I am not expecting the team to fall off because he is gone, he has barely been around this season anyway but the alternatives are not very inspiring. Take Milwaukee.
If we had to make one pick the rest of the season it might be Detroit team total unders. I just don’t see who is going to put the ball through the hoop with any regularity beyond Derrick Rose and he does not make other players better the way that he used to. Milwaukee might score at will and it still could not be enough. Take the under.
