The Milwaukee Bucks play host to the Indiana Pacers at the Fiserv Forum on Tuesday night.

The Indiana Pacers have been in a major slump as they’ve lost 10 of their past 12 games overall and they will be hoping to snap a six-game slide after getting stopped by the Timberwolves in a 129-120 home loss on Sunday. Oshae Brissett scored 22 points with 13 rebounds and two blocks, Tyrese Haliburton added 22 points with 16 assists, Lance Stephenson scored 21 points off the bench while Jalen Smith chipped in with 17 points and 12 rebounds. As a team, the Pacers shot 44 percent from the field and 13 of 45 from the 3-point line as they worked hard to cut an 18-point deficit to just two points late in the third quarter, only to go ice-cold in the fourth quarter to allow the Timberwolves off the hook late.

Meanwhile, the Milwaukee Bucks have been in great shape as they’ve won eight of their past 12 games overall, but they will be hoping to snap a two-game skid after last night’s 122-107 home loss to the Trail Blazers. Jrue Holiday led the team with 23 points and six assists, Bobby Portis and Jordan Nwora each scored 17 points while Khris Middleton chipped in with 16 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists. As a team, the Bucks shot just 42 percent from the field and 13 of 41 from the 3-point line as they allowed the Trail Blazers to get loose early and were always fighting an uphill battle after allowing 40 points in the second quarter. Middleton had a forgettable night as he shot just three of 15 from the field and one of eight from the 3-point line.

Looking at the betting trends, the Pacers are 1-3-1 ATS in their last five road games, 0-6 ATS in their last six games against a team with a winning record and 0-6 ATS in their last six games overall. The Bucks are 4-1 ATS in their last five games against a team with a losing record, 5-1 ATS in their last six games against a team below .400 and 4-1 ATS in their last five games overall.

Head to head, the Pacers are 1-10 ATS in the last 11 meetings in Milwaukee and the Pacers are 1-6 ATS in the last seven meetings overall.

The Pacers will again be without Myles Turner, Chris Duarte and Isaiah Jackson, while Malcolm Brogdon is listed as questionable. The Bucks will again be without Pat Connaughton and George Hill, while Giannis Antetokounmpo could sit out again after missing last night’s game. The Pacers are a rebuilding team full of new faces who are playing for positions, while the Bucks were on fire before last night’s loss to the Trail Blazers and they might have to do it without their best player once again. The Pacers are only 1-6 ATS in the last seven meetings overall, so I’m sticking with the Bucks to bounce back with a big win and cover at home.
