The Milwaukee Bucks and Indiana Pacers meet Wednesday in NBA action at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
The Milwaukee Bucks look for another win after winning 14 of their last 15 games. The Milwaukee Bucks are averaging 119.8 points on 48.2 percent shooting and allowing 107.3 points on 40.9 percent shooting. Giannis Antetokounmpo is averaging 30 points and 13.5 rebounds while Khris Middleton is averaging 20.5 points and 6.2 rebounds. Eric Bledsoe is the third double-digit scorer and Brook Lopez is grabbing 4.5 rebounds. The Milwaukee Bucks are shooting 36.2 percent from beyond the arc and 73.1 percent from the free throw line. The Milwaukee Bucks are allowing 35.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 52.1 rebounds per game. The Milwaukee Bucks haven’t lost a road game since January 6.
The Indiana Pacers need a win to snap a six-game losing streak. The Indiana Pacers are averaging 109.6 points on 47.7 percent shooting and allowing 107.5 points on 44.9 percent shooting. Domantas Sabonis is averaging 18.3 points and 4.8 assists while TJ Warren is averaging 18.2 points and 3.6 rebounds. Malcolm Brogdon is the third double-digit scorer and Jeremy Lamb is grabbing 4.4 rebounds. The Indiana Pacers are shooting 36.6 percent from beyond the arc and 78.8 percent from the free throw line. The Indiana Pacers are allowing 34.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42.5 rebounds per game. The Indiana Pacers have lost five straight home games.
The Bucks are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest, 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a ATS win and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Pacers are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 Wednesday games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The under is 5-0 in Bucks last 5 road games. The over is 4-1 in Pacers last 5 overall. The Bucks are 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings. The under is 6-0 in the last 6 meetings in Indiana and 5-0 in the last 5 meetings.
The Milwaukee Bucks rarely get these sort of spreads, and they've been crazy consistent both SU and ATS on the season. However, the Indiana Pacers need a win here, as they've had a rough week and are capable of playing much better than what they've shown. The Bucks are also going to be without Giannis Antetokounmpo and Kyle Korver for this contest. This is a more than winnable game in a spot where the Pacers need one. Indiana can't go into the all-star break on a seven-game losing streak. I'll take the home dog.
