Indiana Pacers vs Milwaukee Bucks prediction

The Milwaukee Bucks should be favored at home, but they continue to not play much defense, and they're 9-13-1 ATS on the season. The Indiana Pacers have the offense to give the Bucks trouble, and they've beaten the Bucks twice already this year. That includes a win a few days ago in the tournament despite being a 5.5 point underdog. The value is with the Pacers and the free buckets.
