The Milwaukee Bucks look to keep in the hunt for a playoff spot when they host the Indiana Pacers tonight. Get your odds at Just Bet sportsbook.
The Indiana Pacers come into tonight’s game as winners of three straight games and they have actually reeled of 7 of 8 wins as well. They dominated the Cavaliers in back to back outings they won in overtime in Cleveland on Wednesday, but dominated them last night at home by a score of 102-83. Danny Granger has really turned in on lately and has largely been the reason for the Pacers increased success. During the month of April he has been averaging about 24 points per game and shooting around 50 percent from the floor. The Pacers now have somewhat of a comfortable 3 game lead on the Boston Celtics for the third seed in the Eastern Conference.
The Bucks on the other hand have been taking their best shot at a playoff berth lately. They have won six of nine games including a 113-97 win on the road in Detroit last night. This was an easy win for the Bucks as they led the game the entire way. All five starters scored in double figures and the brightest star was that of Drew Gooden who scored 26 points and erased any leftover injury concerns in the process. Milwaukee is now two games behind Philadelphia for the 8th playoff spot with just seven games left to play.
Head to head the Pacers have won the last 3 games in this series. They won big over the Bucks by a score of 125-104 on March 24th. The Pacers are 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 at Milwaukee, but just 3-7-1 in the last 11 vs. Milwaukee overall.
This game means a whole lot to the Bucks as they fight for that last playoff spot. Given that and the fact that they are at home we like them in this game even though they are favored against a much better team with the pick for sportsbook betting.
