LINE MOVEMENT

The Bucks opened as 3-point home favorites at online sportsbooks but the line is now sitting at 4 points at the majority of books. As for the total, the number hit the board at 210.5 but has been bet down to 212.5.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of this writing, 52% of the betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks are on the Pacers to cover the spread. Meanwhile, 78% of the betting tickets are on the over.

KEY INJURY TO WATCH

Giannis Antetolounmpo (eye) is probable for the Bucks but Tony Snell (thing) and Malcolm Brogdon (knee) are both out. For the Pacers, Darren Collison (knee) is out.

BETTING STRATEGY

The Pacers have covered the spread in four of their last five games against Eastern Conference foes but this is more of a fade of Milwaukee than backing Indiana. The Bucks are 2-5 against the spread in their last seven games coming off a loss, are 3-10 against the number in their last 13 games playing on one day of rest, and are just 1-5 at the betting window in their last six games overall.
