Pacers at Bucks: Odds, lines, predictions and picks
Pacers 120, Bucks 115
Money line (ML)
The Pacers are the lesser team but play well on the road. Plus, with Giannis likely not playing, it is the perfect opportunity to take advantage and sneak in a win on the road against a conference rival.
Milwaukee is only 6-5 the last two seasons without him in the lineup and the Pacers have won three of their last four on the road.
Take the PACERS (+180).

Against the spread (ATS)
As good as the Buck has been this season, they have not been good against the spread, as they have a 19-22 ATS record. They are 2-5 ATS in their last seven games.
Indiana has the third-worst ATS record this season in the league at 17-24, but they are 11-11 ATS on the road. Since we expect them to get the upset win with Giannis out, take the PACERS +5.5 (-110).
Both teams are 24-16-1 O/U this season. Four of the last five for the Bucks have gone Over the total, while four of the last five for the Pacers have gone Over as well. Milwaukee will miss Antetokounmpo’s scoring but also his defense.
Take OVER 230.5 POINTS (-110).
