Pacers continue win streak

Indiana is coming off a 116-111 win at San Antonio on Monday night for a fourth straight victory. The Pacers have won six of their last seven as well. The Pacers are 37-24 on the season, 16-14 on the road, 32-27-2 against the spread and 32-28-1 with the over.

The Pacers are putting up 109.4 points per game on offense this season while shooting 47.6 percent from the field. Defensively, Indiana is giving up 107.2 points per game, while opponents are shooting 44.9 percent from the field. Victor Oladipo is questionable to play tonight due to an ankle injury. TJ Warren is leading the team with 18.7 points and 3.9 rebounds per game. Domantas Sabonis is adding 18.3 points, 12.5 rebounds and 4.9 assists per game.

Bucks beat up in Miami

Milwaukee had a six-game win streak come to an end on Monday night in a 105-89 loss at Miami. The Bucks are 52-9 on the season, 27-3 at home, 35-26 against the spread and 31-29-1 with the under.

The Bucks have the league’s best offense, putting up 119.1 points per game while shooting 47.9 percent from the field. Defensively, Milwaukee is giving up just 106.8 points per game while opponents shoot only 41 percent against them. Giannis Antetokounmpo is leading Milwaukee with 29.6 points, 13.8 rebounds and 5.8 assists per game. Khris Middleton is adding 20.9 points, 6.3 rebounds and 4.1 assists per contest.

NBA Betting Trends


The Pacers are 9-3-1 against the spread in their last 13 road games, but just 2-5 ATS in their last seven games as an underdog.


The Bucks have covered in five straight at home and they are 27-9 ATS in their last 36 games following a loss.


The home team has won and covered the last two meetings between these two, but the Bucks own a 117-89 win at home in their meeting. Indiana is playing well right now, but during this hot streak, they also suffered a 127-81 loss at Toronto. I think the Pacers could find themselves overwhelmed tonight as well. They just don’t have the offense to compete with Milwaukee, and the Bucks have a defense that is as strong as Indiana’s, if not better. The Bucks are coming off a poor showing and I would expect them to bounce back in a big way tonight at home.
