Winners of 6 games in a row, the defending champions are finally climbing up the standings in the Eastern Conference. Right now they are 6th and with a schedule that includes 6 straight games vs East teams, they have a chance to leapfrog a couple more spots in the coming weeks. Giannis Antetokounmpo has been playing on a high level, in the Bucks latest win over Denver he was just 3 assists shy of a triple-double. One impressive stat about this Milwaukee team is that they are 2nd in the in rebounding and they are doing it without their center Brook Lopez who hasn’t played a single game in the month of November so far. The Bucks have already beaten the Pacers 119-109 earlier this season in this arena, their fans will be optimist ahead of tonight’s game as they are 9-1 in the last 10 meetings.
This Indiana team shouldn’t be taken lightly though, they are a very decent 6-3 in 9 home games this season and right now they’ve won 3 of their last 4 games. They’re coming off a big 114-97 win over the Raptors in which 7 of their players scored 10 or more points led by Domantas Sabonis who had 23 and 18 boards. Depth has been a strength of this team all season long and they also like to share the ball as well. Per game they average 23.8 assists which puts them in the Top 10. They are also decent on defense allowing 105.7 points per game at home. In their last 6 games played in their own arena they’ve covered 5 times, however against the Bucks they have just 1 win in the last 5 meetings.
Milwaukee is finally hitting it’s stride with their 3 biggest stars playing together after a long period of absence for Middleton and Holiday. Giannis is on his standard MVP level and although the Pacers have been solid at home, I just feel like the Bucks are far more talented and experienced in this one. So let’s back the Bucks to cover.

The first meeting of the season produced 228 points between these two. That’s about the same average we’ve seen in their last 10 games played head-to-head where they’ve averaged 225.3 points between them. The Bucks are outscoring the Pacers by 15 points in those 10 games and there’s no question about who’s the better team offensively in this one. In their last 3 games the Bucks are averaging 119 per game, while Indy is at 113 per game. With 100 possessions per game, Milwaukee currently ranks 9th in the NBA in pace, so we could see them push the tempo quite a lot in this one, just like they did in the first meeting of the season. The over has cashed in 2 of the last 3 meetings between the two sides, with the two teams scoring 133.6 and 118.3 points per game during that stretch. I think we are in for a similar scenario tonight. Back the over.
