Indiana Pacers at Milwaukee Bucks Betting Preview

A pair of Eastern Conference teams will meet up on Tuesday for Game 2 of their best of seven series. The Indiana Pacers are on the road at the Milwaukee Bucks. The Pacers dropped the first game of the series on the road. Indiana went 47-35 on the season, which was sixth in the Eastern Conference. The Pacers were the highest scoring team in the regular season, but scored just 94 in the loss.

For Milwaukee, they have been up and down all season. They were up for much of the season, but dropping games late had them fall to the third seed in the Eastern Conference. The Bucks started the postseason with a 49-33 record on the season. They lost their final two games of the regular season, including the finale against Orlando.

The Milwaukee Bucks are -1.5 in this game at home.

Indiana Looking for Big Time Bounce Back

The Indiana Pacers were the top scoring team in the regular season with 123 points per game The Pacers made 50.7% of their shots. That did not happen in the game 1 loss. The Pacers scored just 94 points in the game. Indiana saw Pascal Siakam have a big game, with 36 points, but that was about it.

Tyrese Hailiburton was not real good. He played 37 minutes, and scored just 9 points in the game. Hailiburton was the Pacers leading scorer until the trade to grab Siakam from Toronto. Hailiburton finished the regular season at 20.1 points per game and 10.9 assists.

Indiana will hope to bounce back. They will have to pick up the pace, and do a better job defensively on Lillard if they want any chance to even it up.

Determined Milwaukee Bucks Squad

The Bucks did not play with Giannis Antetokounmpo in this game. That’s a huge loss for Milwaukee, as his regular season numbers were staggering. The Greek Freak scored 30.4 points per game, dished out 6.5 assists, and ripped down more than 11 rebounds per game.

Damian Lillard took over the show for the Bucks. He averaged 24.3 points per game and dished out 7 assists per game. In the game 1 win, Lillard was 11 for 24 from the field and scored a game high 35 points.

As a team, the Bucks scored 119 points per game. That was fourth in all of the National Basketball Association. The Bucks are fifth in three pointers made, with 14.2 per game, and made nearly 38% of them. Milwaukee went 2-6 during their final 8 games of the regular season.

Bucks Take Command of Series

Damian Lillard is ready to show the NBA why the Bucks traded for him. Without their top scorer, the Greek Freak, he took over the game. We do not expect him to play in this game as well, but that just means more Lilliard.

The Bucks are going to beat the Pacers. This series is going to go to Indiana with the Bucks leading 2-0. We like the Milwaukee Bucks at home here. Take Milwaukee -1.5 over Indiana.
