The Milwaukee Bucks steamrolled to another scintillating victory on Monday, coming through with a dominant 123-111 win over the Sacramento Kings. With Giannis Antetokounmpo sitting out due to the birth of his first child, Khris Middleton and Eric Bledsoe took the spotlight as both finished with gaudy numbers. Middleton recorded 28 points, 11 rebounds and 8 assists, and Bledsoe tallied 28 points, 8 rebounds and 8 assists.
Players to Watch: Khris Middleton (20.5 PPG, 6.2 RPG and 4.3 APG)
Eric Bledsoe (15.7 PPG, 4.7 RPG, and 5.4 APG)
Brook Lopez (10.6 PPG, 4.5 RPG and 1.6APG)

The Indiana Pacers have looked lost and out ever since Oladipo was inserted into the lineup. In Monday’s 105-106 loss to the Brooklyn Nets, Indiana shot 48 percent from the field but converted just 23 percent of their shot beyond the three-point line. Domantas Sabonis recorded a triple-double with 23 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists, while Victor Oladipo tallied 12 points in 27 minutes.

Milwaukee Bucks vs Indiana Pacers Betting Picks
With Giannis expected to miss another game, the Bucks will come to the Bankers Life Fieldhouse on a slim NBA spread handicap. The Pacers might have been struggling as of late but everybody knows this team has the firepower to beat a Giannis-less Bucks on their home court.
Moneyline: Pick the Pacers at +105. Indiana got blown out by the Bucks twice this season but I am confident they will pull off a win against a Milwaukee team that is missing their superstar.
ATS: Bet the Pacers to cover the spread. Indiana is 4-6 ATS in the last 10 games.
TOTALs: Back the OVER at 222 points. The Bucks just scored 123 points without Giannis Antetokounmpo. The Pacers are not that shabby offensively, scoring between 105 to 118 points in their last four.
Score Prediction: 120 – 118 Pacers
