At the same time, Detroit Pistons have fallen a bit recently but they will feel quite good after have snapped a six-game skate with 113-104 home win over Celtics on Saturday. Blake Griffin led the way with 27 points, eight rebounds and six assists. Andre Drummond scored 19 points with 20 rebounds and five blocks while Reggie Bullock scored 15 points. As a team, the pistols shot 48 percent of the plan, but that was their defense in the second half, that was the difference as they held Celtics to just 41 percent shooting. With the much needed profit, Detroit improved to 14-13 in total and 10-6 at home.

Looking at betting trends, Bucks is 5-12 ATS in their last 17 road games, 1-5 ATS in their last six matches after a win and 4-10 ATS in their last 14 road games against a team of winning record. The pistons are 0-4 ATS in their last four matches against a team over .600, 1-4 ATS in their last five Monday games and 2-5 ATS in their last seven matches in total.

Head to head is home team 3-1-1 ATS in the last five meetings, the base is 4-0-1 in the last five meetings and Bucks is 1-4-1 ATS during the last six meetings.

Middleton has been ruled out on Monday with a proper finger tightening while Brogdon is currently dubious with the tenderness of his hamstring so Bucks will not be in full force. The pistols have not been the best lately, but they looked good in their impressive victory over the red-hot Celtics on Saturday. This can be either, but Bucks is only 5-12 ATS in their final 17 road games, and they are also shorthanded for this meeting, so I go with the pistons to win the victory at this place.
