The Milwaukee Bucks take on the Detroit Pistons in a battle between division rivals at 7 p.m. ET on Tuesday. Milwaukee is favored by 4.5 points at Caesars Sportsbook, while the Over-Under is set at 212 (see up-to-date odds for every game this week on our NBA odds page). 

Before making any Bucks vs. Pistons picks, you NEED to check out the NBA predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model.

The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every NBA game 10,000 times and has returned almost $9,000 in profit on its top-rated NBA picks over the past three-plus seasons. The model finished up almost $600 on its top-rated picks last season and enters Week 3 of the 2021-22 NBA season on a stunning 106-71 roll on top-rated NBA picks against the spread. Anyone following it has seen huge returns.

The model knows the Bucks have the best player on the floor in Giannis Antetokounmpo. Antetokounmpo is the reigning NBA Finals MVP, averaging 30.2 points and 12.8 rebounds per game in the 2021 NBA Playoffs, and he is a two-way force for Milwaukee. The Bucks are an elite two-point shooting team as a result, making 53.4 percent of attempts, and Milwaukee's defense has been excellent over multiple seasons. Detroit currently sports the worst offensive rating in the NBA, opening the door for success, even as the Bucks face roster challenges.

The model also knows the Pistons are the healthier team in this matchup. The Bucks continue to miss key pieces, and Detroit has an intriguing statistical profile in a few key areas. The Pistons are forcing a turnover on 17.6 percent of defensive possessions and generating 9.7 steals per game. With above-average marks in offensive rebound rate, free throw creation, and assist rate on offense, the Pistons have a pathway to success.

Now, it has set its sights on Bucks vs. Pistons. We can tell you the model is leaning under the total, and it also says one side of the spread hits in well over 50 percent of simulations! You ABSOLUTELY need to see it before locking in any NBA picks.
