Milwaukee will try to take another step towards securing the top seed in the Eastern Conference when they travel to Indiana on Wednesday night. After winning four of their last five games, Milwaukee sits two games ahead of Boston at the top of the standings. In comparison, Indiana has lost five out of its last six matches and sits 3.5 games behind Chicago for the final spot in the Eastern Conference play-in tournament.
The Pacers are ranked 27th in the league in PPG, given up at 118.7, forcing 15.1 TOs per game and allowing teams to shoot 48.2% from the floor (23rd overall). Indiana concedes 37.4% on shots from beyond the arc (1,057 of 2,537) and 80.3% of free throw attempts; they give up 26.4 assists and 45.1 boards per game, respectively, ranking them 27th and 26th in this category respectively.
On defense, the Bucks have forced 12.0 turnovers per game while drawing 19.0 fouls per contest. They rank 4th in basketball for giving up assists, with 1,754 surrendered this year. As a unit, they allow an opponent shooting percentage of 45.1% (3,152 of 6,995) and surrender 44.6 boards per contest as a unit; furthermore, they surrender 34.8% on 3-point shots and rank 10th overall in points per game allowed (112.4).
Bucks vs Pacers Head-to-Head this season.
The Pacers beat the Bucks in Milwaukee by double-digits two weeks ago. The Bucks beat the Pacers the first two times they played this season.
Indiana's season has quickly come to a close, and they are no longer in contention for a playoff spot. After losing five of their last six games without covering the spread in all five losses, they are no longer competitive without Haliburton on the court; he will be unavailable again on Wednesday. Milwaukee on the other hand has won 16 of its last 20 games and appears on track to clinch the top seed in the Eastern Conference with one game left to play.
The Bucks will win this game but I think the Pacers can cover the 11.5 points.
Bet the over in this game, the three previous games that these teams played indicate a good chance at hitting the over.
