Neither side has anyone listed on the injury report for this game, so barring any last-minute announcements, both sides will come into this game at full strength.

Matchup History

Milwaukee’s 84-81 win back on December 31st, 2022, snapped Detroit’s six-game win streak in this head-to-head matchup.


Detroit is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS win and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 road games while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 road games. Milwaukee is 8-21 ATS in their last 29 home games against a team with a road winning percentage below .400 and 9-24 ATS in their last 33 home games against a team with a losing road record while the over is 5-1 in their last 6 games overall.


I’m sticking with Milwaukee in this one. Not a game I’m rushing to bet, but the Panthers are the better team and should be eager to shake off their terrible loss to Green Bay in their last game. Detroit’s done a lot of their best work at home, but the defense can be an issue for the Titans on the road and I just see Milwaukee progressively pulling away over the course of the second half. Give me the Panthers laying the points here.
