Giannis Antetokounmpo, Kyle Korver and George Hill both are out of the upcoming game. Giannis Antetokounmpo leads the Bucks in points per game with 30 and in rebounds per game with 13.5. Bledsoe joined Khris Middleton in collecting 28 points and eight assists as Milwaukee rode a strong start in the fourth quarter to post its fifth straight win and 14th in 15 outings. IN snapped a six-game losing streak to improve to 32-23. IN is now 31-23 on the season, 18-10 at home, 28-25-1 against the spread and 29-24-1 with the over. The former All-Star guard is 23 of 78 (29.5 percent) in six games following a year-long absence from a ruptured tendon in his right knee for in, which sent its projected starting lineup to the court for the first time all season. Sabonis is also the leading rebounder this season for the Pacers as he has averaged 12.5 per game including an average of 3.1 offensive rebounds per game. Milwaukee is 5-0 against the spread in their last 5 games. Defensively, Indiana is giving up 107.5 points per game while opponents shoot 44.9 percent against them.

The Bucks have covered the spread in five straight as a favorite and in five of their last six as a road favorite. Pacers have no player listed as questionable or out for the game. The Bucks have won the first two meetings of the season between these two teams by the scores of 102-83 and 117-89. I am going with the Bucks in this one. IN just can't get itself on track right now, as the return of Victor Oladipo has sparked a losing streak instead of providing a spark.

Indiana's defense held the Bucks to 40% shooting while the Pacers shot 52%.
