Bucks vs Pistons preview (11/03/22)

The matchup between the Detroit Pistons and Milwaukee Bucks this season looks to be an exciting one. The Bucks will be hoping to be firing on all cylinders and take the win in this game. They have started the NBA season as the bookies’ favorite to win the title.

The bookmakers and analysts agree unanimously that the Bucks are the team to beat. If you want to place a wager on the Bucks or any other team, you can find a whole host of NBA sports betting markets that will be able to provide you with odds on the latest games.

We will look at this game in this article and preview it for you while trying to dissect all the facts and figures that indicate which way this one will go.

Milwaukee Bucks

As we mentioned in the introduction, the Bucks will be the team to beat this season. Their goal will be to win the finals, and they have a squad that is more than capable of doing just that. 

Their star man Giannis Antetokounmpo will be looking to add the Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy to his name. Giannis is among the top players in the NBA and he will be eager to add championships to his name. 

He has appeared in multiple All-Star teams and is one of the favorites to lift the MVP trophy this season. If he stays fit… he will be the driving force for the Bucks. If he is on form – he will likely sweep away the Pistons by himself.

His performances could spearhead the glory they seem destined for in this year’s campaign, looking to regain the title they won in 2021.

In addition to Giannis, the Bucks also have Khris Middleton on their roster. He plays second fiddle to the Greek superstar but is a phenomenally gifted player in his own right. The issue for Middleton is that he has been struck down with injury issues over the past couple of seasons.

The Bucks will be desperate for him to find form and not be hit with more time on the sidelines. His inclusion will be crucial to whether or not they fulfil the enormous potential they have for their campaign this season.

Detroit Pistons

The Pistons aren’t quite as revered as their opponents, but that isn’t to say that they don’t have some quality in their ranks. In fact, they have some players who will be aiming to join the likes of Giannis Antetokounmpo in the All-Star team.

Cade Cunningham is only 21, but he plays an incredibly impressive game. Many analysts predict that the young Pistons point guard has a dazzling career ahead of him. As the first-round draft pick last season, the pressure was on Cunningham from the get-go.

However, there were plenty of good reasons he was so high in the draft pick. He has been capturing the imagination of NBA fans throughout his pre-NBA career. He hopes to live up to the incredible promise he has already shown by transferring that form into the NBA.

His preseason, however, wasn’t as eye-catching as expected. This has led some people to believe that the Pistons will be on the outside looking in at the end of this year’s campaign.

Cunningham talks like a true winner. If he can focus and play to the standard he has shown himself to be capable of, the Pistons will have a sensational talent on their hands. 


Our prediction for this one is a Bucks win – they’re the favorites for a reason, and if their star players can even begin to show half of their quality, there won’t be many teams out there that can beat them. Unfortunately, the Pistons are not a team on this list.

The Pistons may put on a spirited display, and if the likes of Cade Cunningham are performing to his best standard, he could have the Bucks on their toes. However, the Bucks not only have star quality, but some of their players are also entering the prime of their careers. It appears it is all moving towards a special season for the Milwaukee-based franchise.


The thing about the NBA is that it can produce magical moments and some big shocks throughout the season – a win for the Pistons wouldn’t be the craziest thing that has happened in the NBA, by any stretch of the imagination. Still, it’s difficult to envisage a scenario where the Bucks don’t take the win here.

Throw in the mix that they’re also playing with home advantage, and it looks like it could be a fairly straightforward night for the Bucks.
