Before you make your Pistons vs. Bucks picks, you should see the latest NBA predictions from the proven computer model at SportsLine.
The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every NBA game 10,000 times, and last season it returned a whopping $4,280 on its top-rated NBA spread and money line picks. It's already returned over $1,400 in profit on all its top-rated NBA picks during the 2019-20 season and entered Week 7 on a blistering 15-3 run on all top-rated NBA against the spread picks. Anybody who has followed it has seen huge returns.
Now, it has simulated Pistons vs. Bucks 10,000 times and the results are in. We can tell you that the model is leaning under, and it's also generated a strong point-spread pick that is hitting in over 60 percent of simulations. You can only see the pick at SportsLine.
The model knows that the Bucks have been a model of defensive efficiency this season. They rank third in the NBA in opponents' eFG% (49.2), second in defensive rebounding percentage (80.8) and fourth in FT/FGA (.169). Giannis Antetokounmpo is following up his MVP season with even better numbers thus far, averaging 30.8 points, 13.4 rebounds and 5.8 assists while shooting a robust 56.5 percent from the floor. With a rotation that is 12-deep, Milwaukee is able to make sure Antetokounmpo isn't overworked and stays fresh for late in games.
Meanwhile, the model also knows that Detroit has been solid offensively with Andre Drummond inside and a strong collection of capable shooters on the perimeter. Drummond is averaging 17.0 points and 16.9 rebounds, and the Pistons lead the NBA in three-point shooting percentage (39.9). In the last three games, Detroit is shooting 47.5 percent from beyond the arc and scoring an average of 122 points per game.
So who wins Bucks vs. Pistons? And which side of the spread hits in over 60 percent of simulations? Visit SportsLine now to find out which side of the Bucks vs. Pistons spread you need to jump on Wednesday, all from the model that has crushed its NBA picks.
