Pacers Are a Solid Wager When Tabbed as Faves

With Victor Oladipo in the fold, the Indiana Pacers are a completely different-looking team and the results speak for themselves. Oladipo and the Pacers will have their hands full against Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks on Monday.

MyBookie opened the Bucks as 1.5-point road underdogs with a total of 214.

Shark Bites
  • The Bucks are 7-1 ATS in their last eight games against teams with winning records.
  • The Bucks are 0-4 SU in their last four games against their division on the road.
  • The total has gone UNDER in seven of the Pacers’ last nine games vs divisional opponents.

Without Oladipo, the Pacers averaged 95 points per game while dropping five straight, but the offense came back into form with the 25-year-old in the lineup in a 125-86 thumping of the Chicago Bulls on Saturday to snap the losing streak. Indy shot 55.8 percent from the floor and knocked down 15 three-pointers in the triumph.

Antetokounmpo collected 34 points, 12 rebounds and seven assists while logging 41 minutes on the second night of a back-to-back in Saturday’s 110-103 victory at Washington. These teams collided last week which resulted in a 122-101 win by the Bucks, but Oladipo didn’t suit up in that one. Point guard Eric Bledsoe was held to seven points in 28 minutes in the Milwaukee win, while Khris Middleton collected 27 points on 9-of-14 shooting.

When the Pacers have been tabbed as favorites, they’ve been worth the price both straight up and against the spread. In Indiana’s last 20 as faves, they’re 17-3 SU and 15-5 ATS.
