Bucks vs. Pacers Pick

NBA Predictions: Will Antetokounmpo, Bucks get best of Pacers? 1/8/17

Can the Milwaukee Bucks go on the road and get a win tonight at the Indiana Pacers? Tip-off is slated for 7PM ET.

Who Oddsmakers Like: Indiana. According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Pacers are a 1.5-point favorite on the spread line. The total is set at 214 points. Indiana opened as a 2-point fave, while the spread has dropped slightly after opening at 215.

Bet Tonight's NBA Action

Who the Public Likes: As of Monday afternoon, 55 percent of public bets have been placed on the visiting Bucks. 

Injury Report: Bucks forward Jabari Parker is recovering from a torn ACL and expected to return around the All-Star Break. Mirza Teletovic is out indefinitely with a knee injury plus pulminary emboli in both lungs. For the Pacers, Bojan Bogdanovic missed the last game with a sprained ankle but is probably for tonight. Glenn Robinson III is recovering from ankle surgery and remains out.

Who the Trends Like: Milwaukee is 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings and 5-2 ATS in the last seven meetings in Indiana. The over is 4-1 in the last five meetings in Indiana.

Who We Like: The return of Pacers guard Victor Oladipo to their lineup last game resulted in a 125-86 home thrashing over the Bulls. While Oladipo's presence is clearly vital, the best player on the court tonight is certainly Bucks' do-everything forward Giannis Antetokounmpo. Milwaukee won the last meeting 122-101 on its home floor and I like the visitors to get the job done again here behind a big effort from the Greek Freak.
