The Pistons are ready for a summer break after getting blown out by the Bucks in the first three games. Can they make Game 4 competitive or will it be the same old story? Our analysts discuss.

Betting Trends to Know

After opening up a 3-0 series lead, the Bucks are now 13-point favorites on the road in Game 4 of the playoffs. The main reason for the lofty spread is the fact that Milwaukee is outscoring the Pistons by 24 points per game in this series.

Since 2005, only four teams have been favored by double digits on the road in Game 4 of a playoff series. All four teams won straight-up by at least 10 points, and they covered by an average of 5.1 PPG. – Evan Abrams

As 13-point road favorites in the playoffs Monday night, the Bucks are the 2nd-largest road favorite in the NBA playoffs since at least 2005. The largest road favorite prior to Milwaukee tonight was back in 2016, when the Spurs were 13.5-point favorites against the Grizzlies. – Abrams

When the Pistons take the court Monday night, they are going to be very disappointed to find out that they still have to play the Bucks. This season, the Bucks are 7-0 straight up and 6-0-1 ATS against the Pistons. In all seven games, the Bucks have had the field goal percentage advantage over the Pistons, and in only one game has Detroit come within even 10 points. – Abrams

Bucks are the largest road favorite since the Spurs -13.5 at Grizzlies (2016). Double-digit favorites in the postseason have gone 62-49-3 (56%) ATS since 2005. Road favorites of 10 or more points are 5-0 SU and 3-1-1 ATS in that time. – John Ewing
