Odds from 

This is one game that the Bucks should be able to win without Giannis on the court. The Pistons are horrible team on the year and have not really been able to do much offensively. The defense for Detroit is not looking that impressive either and should continue to struggle in this game as the Bucks have plenty of offensive options on the court at any given point in time. Look for the Pistons to struggle to keep the Bucks offense in check, but also for the total to stay under in this game as the Pistons will not be able to help the total get pushed to the over.
