Detroit is a heavy favorite in pro basketball betting odds for this game. NBA betting stats and trends definitely favor Detroit in this game. The Bucks are playing the last game of a four-game road trip according to the pro basketball betting schedule. They are also in the first of a back-to-back according to the NBA betting schedule, as they are home against Cleveland tomorrow night. What makes this spot even tougher for Milwaukee against the basketball betting line is that they just don’t win very often against the Pistons. Detroit is 8-2 straight up and 6-4 against the NBA betting pointspread in the last ten meetings between the two teams. At Detroit, the Pistons are 4-1 straight up and 3-2 against the NBA betting number in the last five meetings. Last season the teams met four times and the Pistons won three of the four including both games in Detroit according to pro basketball betting stats. The Pistons won 127-100 and 114-69 at home according to NBA betting results. The latter game was the only time in the last five meetings between the two teams that they have gone under the pro basketball betting total. In fact, 7 of the last 10 meetings between the two teams have gone over the NBA betting total.
NBA betting stats show that the Bucks are led again this season by Michael Redd. He leads the team in scoring but it is unlikely he will play in this matchup due to injury. Without Redd in the lineup the Bucks are really shorthanded and don’t matchup at all with the Pistons. Richard Jefferson is definitely a player that can score according to NBA betting statistics but Redd is the player that most teams fear.
The Pistons have been led in scoring by Allen Iverson since he came over in the Chauncey Billups trade according to NBA betting stats. Surprisingly, the Pistons have played pretty well with Iverson in the lineup and that could be the case again here against the Bucks on Friday.
