NBA Online Betting Odds:
The Pacers enter tonight’s action sporting a 42-23 record that ranks them 2nd overall in the Central Division. Right now the division is led by the Milwaukee Bucks who own a 6 ½ game lead over the Pacers. At the present time Indiana ranks 3rd in the Eastern Conference, so it’s clear they’re having a successful season. However, they haven’t been having much success lately and are about to be usurped by the 4th seeded Philadelphia 76ers. This is because Philly is but a game behind Indiana and are eager to take advantage of the Pacers’ recent woes. But considering that Indiana is 5-5 in their last 10 against Milwaukee, will they be able to rebound against a team that has lost the last two in a row? Considering that they’ll have to compete without Oladipo, it seems highly unlikely.
Players to Watch: Victor Oladipo (18.8 ppg, 5.6 rpg, 5.2 apg), Bojan Bogdanovic (17.7 ppg, 4.1 rpg, 1.8 apg), and Domantas Sabonis (14.3 ppg, 9.3 rpg, 2.7 apg).
The Bucks leap into tonight’s action flashing a 48-16 record that pegs them as the best team in both the Central and Eastern Conference. Despite losing the last two in a row, tonight’s NBA online betting odds are pegging Milwaukee as a heavy favorite here. This was to be expected in the end, since the Bucks are healthy while their opponent’s star will be sidelined. And although Milwaukee has lost their last two games in a row, that was at the end of a rather lengthy road stretch. Now that they’ll be back in their home court, bettors can expect them to come out in full force.
Players to Watch: Giannis Antetokounmpo (27.0 ppg, 12.6 rpg, 6.0 apg), Khris Middleton (17.4 ppg, 6.0 rpg, 4.3 apg), and Malcolm Brogdon (16.2 ppg, 4.7 rpg, 3.3 apg).
