The Milwaukee Bucks play host to the Detroit Pistons tonight at the Bradley Center.
The Pistons were going for a third straight win on Saturday but fell to the Wizards by 97-95 in a thriller. Reggie Jackson led the scoring with 20 points and nine assists, Marcus Morris and Ersan Ilyasova added 18 points each while Kentavious Caldwell-Pope added 16 points, but with the Pistons down by two, Morris airballed the potential game-winning three as time ran out. Andre Drummond played 37 minutes but was kept quiet the entire game, finishing with just eight points on three of six shooting after scoring 21 points just the night before against the Wolves but he's been playing too well this season to make it two bad games in a row.

Meanwhile, the Bucks have lost five of their last six games and are coming off their biggest loss of the season, a 123-86 defeat at Indiana on Saturday. Greg Monroe scored 11 points and 14 rebounds while Jabari Parker and OJ Mayo chipped in with 10 points each but no other Bucks player finished in double digits as the Pacers burned them in the second half by an amazing 68-35. The Bucks gave up 29 points on 23 turnovers and they just had no answer for the Pacers' Jordan Hill who scored a season-high 20 points on nine of 10 shooting.
In ATS trends, the Pistons are 1-4 ATS in their last five road games and 2-5 ATS in their last seven games overall, while the Bucks are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games following a loss and 1-6 ATS in their last seven games against a team with a winning record.
Head to head, the Pistons are 0-6 ATS in the last six meetings overall but the road team is 9-4 ATS in the last 13 meetings.
These two teams match up quite well on paper, but the Pistons are clearly the team in better form and should come out on top and cover the small spread.
