Basketball betting odds are close on Saturday’s matchup between the Detroit Pistons and Milwaukee Bucks. Basketball trends favor the Pistons in this matchup since they have won 8 of the last 10 matchups between the two teams.
Basketball trends tell us that Detroit is 6-4 against the basketball odds in those games. At Milwaukee, the Pistons have won four of the last five games straight up as basketball betting stats show. They are 3-2 against the basketball odds in those games.
The Pistons have won both meetings so far this season between the two teams as basketball betting results tell us. Basketball numbers show that they won 87-76 at Milwaukee and they won 107-97 at home. The Pistons covered the basketball pointspread in both instances.
Detroit has been a solid team defensively this season as NBA betting stats show, ranking in the Top 5 in the league. Detroit has not been able to solve their offensive woes though as they rank in the bottom third of the league as basketball betting tells us. Allen Iverson can score but the chemistry of the team is just not the same since Chauncey Billups was traded. Richard Hamilton is now coming off the bench and that experiment has been up and down.
Milwaukee’s season is really over. They are playing for next season now that guard Michael Redd is out for the season. The Bucks would have been a bubble team when it came to making the playoffs but without Redd they are almost assuredly going to miss the playoffs this season as the basketball betting standings show. Redd led the team in scoring and was finally getting back to his All-Star form before the injury. NBA betting experts don’t believe the Bucks have the talent or the depth to compensate for the loss of Redd. The Bucks can still sneak under the basketball betting odds on occasion though. They still play decent defense and Richard Jefferson can still impact basketball odds.
Five of the last seven meetings between the two teams have gone over the NBA betting total. At Milwaukee, the over is 3-2 against the basketball betting total.
