Will the Bucks' offense thrive again?
Will the Bucks' offense come alive tonight against the Pacers like it did on Monday night versus the Rockets? Milwaukee and Indiana will tip-off at 8:00PM ET.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Pacers are 2-point road favorites versus the Bucks while the over/under is sitting at 203, up from the opening number of 202.5. Indiana and Milwaukee are both 5-5 straight up over their last 10 games but the Bucks are 6-4 against the spread over that stretch and the Pacers are 4-6 ATS.
The Bucks shot 59.3 percent from the field in their victory over Houston on Monday. Jerryd Bayless had 18 points in his return from a knee injury while Giannis Antetokounmpo finished with his second career triple-double with 18 points, 17 rebounds and 11 assists. Jabari Parker had a career-high 36 points as well.
Consistency has been an issue for Milwaukee but the Bucks offer bettors great value tonight as a home underdog. They're 10-3 against the spread in their last 13 games versus Eastern Conference opponents, while the Pacers are just 1-4 ATS in their last five games overall. Indiana is also struggling to cover playing on one day of rest, covering in just six of its last seven games in those situations.
