With just a single win over the last seven games, the Milwaukee Bucks will be desperate for a win when the team heads to Indianapolis to take on the Pacers.
Indiana, winners of seven of the last eight, will be on the second night of a back-to-back and will look to get through a tough game against a young Bucks squad.
Heartbreaking news for the Bucks as it was revealed yesterday that star Jabari Parker tore his ACL and will miss the remainder of the season along with having a 12-month rehabilitation process.
Parker was clearly taking that next step in his NBA career, averaging 20.1 points and 6.1 rebounds per game. He was also shooting 49% from the field and 36.5% from behind the arc.
The Bucks will certainly miss Parker, especially when you consider that the team doesn’t have a viable option to replace a fantastic small-ball forward.
Look for Milwaukee to play through Giannis Antetokounmpo even more than normal. The Greek Freak is having a brilliant year, averaging 23.2 points per game on nearly 53% shooting. He’s also grabbing about 8.7 rebounds and 5.4 assists.
Every game here on out will be a tall order for the Bucks without a guy like Jabari Parker on the floor. You have to assume the Bucks will grab someone at the trade deadline but, for the time being, Milwaukee has to try to win with what the team has.
Despite a loss to the Cavaliers on Wednesday, this is a new and improved Indiana Pacers team in 2017. The Pacers won seven straight games and have started to find an identity with all the new pieces that the team got in the offseason.
Paul George has been a much better all-around player over the past month. His confidence and attitude have improved and he’s consistently taking over games down the stretch. PG is averaging 22.5 points on 45% shooting and 38% from the perimeter. He’s also grabbing about six rebounds per game.
Point guard Jeff Teague, who was acquired from Atlanta, has come into his own as the floor general of this team. He’s averaging 15.9 points and 8.2 assists per game. Teague utilizes his speed and ball-handling to knife into the lane and dish out to his shooters. The team is much better with him on the floor.
And we can’t forget about Myles Turner, who’s having a great sophomore season, averaging 15.5 points and 7.2 rebounds, along with an extremely impressive 2.3 blocks per game.
NBA Betting Trends:
- Milwaukee is 1-6 ATS in the last seven games
- The TOTAL has gone UNDER in five of Indiana’s last six games
Free Milwaukee Bucks vs. Indiana Pacers NBA Prediction:
The Bucks have been a tough team to beat at times because of that talented, young core of players. However, the Parker injury really hurts the team. With Indiana on a hot streak recently, the Pacers should get the W at home.
4* UNDER 213
This shouldn’t be a particularly high scoring game. The Bucks are without a 20-point scorer in Jabari Parker and the Pacers are a pretty good defensive squad. I like the Under here.
