NBA Free Pick | Pacers at Bucks
The Milwaukee Bucks have played uninspired basketball the past couple of days and it’s hard to think this mini slump will continue. The Pacers are dealing with injuries and it seems they can’t find a break anywhere this season. First, it’s the best player on the team with Oladipo going down and then, tons of issues here and there and now, Sabonis is out.

The Pacers did get a big win on Tuesday night over the Bulls, but that was the Bulls, not the Bucks! Yes, the Bucks have lost 2 in a row, but not tonight. The Bucks pick it up and win one for the home crowd. Giannis is off the chain and it goes without saying that he rightfully has a place in the NBA MVP argument. Tonight, this team shakes off their woes, and finds an easy win.
Why do the Bucks win?
They are a better team than the Pacers and here is why… The Bucks are scoring 117.3 points per game and allowing 108.2, the team is shooting 47.6% from the field, grabbing 49.2 rebounds and 26.1 assists, 6.1 blocks, and 7.5 steals. Look, the numbers are hardly better than the Pacers, however, the Bucks have Giannis, the man can explode, and he can change the outcome of a contest, he can especially change it at home. The Pacers have no explosion, they have lost the playmaker and they will struggle in this one.
Look for the Buck to jump out to an early lead and even a big lead. The first half will be a bargain at whatever number is listed, jump on the Bucks first half… Be careful going into the second half. Wait on the third quarter then possibly jump on a worthy number in the 4th quarter-playing the live NBA line.
This one could be close down the stretch… but with a 10.5-point spread, the moneyline is much to expensive. For this reason, look to the total. This one should easily jump over the 221. These two score a ton of points and tonight will be no exception.
