The Milwaukee Bucks and Detroit Pistons meet Thursday in NBA action at the Little Caesars Arena.

The Milwaukee Bucks look to stay hot after winning 10 of their last 12 games. The Milwaukee Bucks are averaging 119.6 points on 48 percent shooting and allowing 107.5 points on 41.1 percent shooting. Giannis Antetokounmpo is averaging 30 points and 13.5 rebounds while Khris Middleton is averaging 20.4 points and 6.1 rebounds. Eric Bledsoe is the third double-digit scorer and Brook Lopez is grabbing 4.5 rebounds. The Milwaukee Bucks are shooting 36.1 percent from beyond the arc and 73.5 percent from the free throw line. The Milwaukee Bucks are allowing 35.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 52 rebounds per game. The Milwaukee Bucks have won six of their last seven road games.

The Detroit Pistons need a win to snap a four-game losing streak. The Detroit Pistons are averaging 108 points on 46.1 percent shooting and allowing 110.6 points on 47.5 percent shooting. Derrick Rose is averaging 18.2 points and 5.8 assists while Luke Kennard is averaging 15.8 points and 3.5 rebounds. Blake Griffin is the third double-digit scorer and Christian Wood is grabbing 5.7 rebounds. The Detroit Pistons are shooting 36.8 percent from beyond the arc and 74.4 percent from the free throw line. The Detroit Pistons are allowing 36.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42.4 rebounds per game. The Detroit Pistons have lost six of their last eight home games.

The Bucks are 4-0-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Detroit and 19-7-2 ATS in the last 28 meetings. The over is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings in Detroit and 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.

The Milwaukee Bucks have won each of the last 10 meetings against the Pistons and nine of those 10 victories were decided by double digits. The Milwaukee Bucks win on the road by an average of 11 points, while the Pistons are 11-18 ATS at home and 21-35-1 ATS on the season. The Pistons just aren't a backable team without Kennard and Griffin on the court, and the roster got even worse with the release of Reggie Jackson. I hate laying massive numbers in this league, but it's the Bucks and the chalk or pass.
