Thursday, February 20, 2020 7:00PM ET at Little Caesars Arena, 2645 Woodward Avenue, Detroit. Pistons will try to compete with the Milwaukee, East leader, and we have prepared a prediction for this confrontation. Should we wait for the rout?

Match Preview

The Match of Stars has already passed, and interesting competitions taking place in Chicago have died down with it. Now the NBA regular season is back. In the remaining segments each team has to spend a little less than 30 matches. For someone, everything is already clear, but someone else needs to fight to jump into the outgoing playoff train. The first after a rest on the floor will be Detroit and Milwaukee.

Dwane Casey’s wards were torn, because there is no team game, and also do not forget about serious problems with the staff. The Pistons lost four games in a row and, to be honest, this series is unlikely to end in a duel against the leader of the East – Bucks.

Milwaukee Bucks

In this confrontation, there is clearly an obvious favorite. Milwaukee single-handedly leads the conference. Before the Match of the Stars, Giannis Antetokounmpo received rest in connection with the birth of a child. Now the current MVP is even more charged with positive emotions. It is worth noting that the rivals have already met each other twice this season. Both times the Wisconsin team was stronger.

Detroit Pistons

Detroit spent three matches more than the opponent, but lost as many as 30 matches more! This eloquently speaks of the alignment of forces before the full-time meeting of the teams. The team from Michigan is located only in the 12th position of the Eastern Conference standings.

Betting Tips Statistic

  • All 6 last games won the Bucks.

Expert Pick and Prediction

In our opinion, the personnel losses of Detroit will negatively affect the game. The team looks awful lately, and here it will also be necessary to play against an uncomfortable opponent and the leader of the East. In a word, we do not believe in the success of the hosts and offer a bet on the Bucks victory.

Prediction: Milwaukee Bucks Will Win

Best Pick: Bucks -11 Point Spread
