Predictions For Pistons Bucks Betting – Bucks Look To Move One Step Closer To Playoffs With Win Over Pistons Saturday

Posted by Craig Parsons on 2/7/2013 6:05:30 PM

The Milwaukee Bucks have maintained a .500 record over their past 10 games as they continue to inch closer to locking up a playoff spot this sports betting season. While it wouldn’t be good enough in the Western Conference, the Bucks will get in if they can stay the course the rest of the season. With the Detroit Pistons in town Saturday, Milwaukee can move to nine games up on one of the teams still technically alive in the race for a playoff spot. The red-hot Boston Celtics are right behind the Bucks for the seventh spot as well, and they are still just two games back of the Atlanta Hawks for sixth in the conference.

Milwaukee is just three games above .500 on the season, but that’s enough that they have been able to hold down a postseason spot even with a record that is just two games better than .500 overall. The 10th-place Pistons enter this weekend 14 games below .500, and have just five road wins in 23 opportunities so far.

That awful road record has prevented Detroit from competing for a playoff spot this season, as a 13-14 home record isn’t very bad at all considering how the team has performed overall. The Pistons have been cold of late with three-straight losses and seven in their last 10, and part of it was losing both Tayshaun Prince and Austin Daye from a rotation that has struggled to space the floor. Jose Calderon is a temporary upgrade at the position, but with Andre Drummond hurt his options on the floor are limited to Greg Monroe and a group of backup point guards being cast at the two and three spots in Will Bynum, Brandon Knight, and Chansi Stuckey.

The Bucks have the potential to overwhelm the Pistons with the size throughout their lineup, especially when they go big with Mike Dunleavy and Ersan Ilyasova. That size has helped Milwaukee become the eight-best rebounding team in the NBA this season, and is a big reason they are competing for a playoff spot. The arrival of Monta Ellis appears to have helped as he and Brandon Jennings continue to share touches, with Jennings still leading the team with an average 18.6 points and six assists per game. The Bucks are at their best when they can space the floor with their guards and exploit size mismatches inside, and that is exactly how they will attack a much smaller Detroit team.

NBA Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

Despite fighting to remain relevant for most of the year, the Pistons simply don’t have the talent or depth to complete for a playoff spot this season and have already began to fade away. The Bucks on the other hand are getting stronger as Jennings and Ellis continue to develop their chemistry, and they should have no problem getting the job at home for a valuable online betting win that will help them move one step closer to the postseason.
