Without Victor Oladipo doubtful to play on Wednesday, the Indiana Pacers are in dire straights. They are on the road against Milwaukee tonight as +7 ½ underdogs, and without their best player recently, Indiana has looked more like a lottery team.

Free NBA Pick: Bucks -7 ½Best Line Offered: at 5Dimes

Oladipo has missed three straight and not finished four straight games for the Pacers. In those four games, Indiana is 0-4 SU and ATS and they have been outscored by an average margin of defeat of 14.3 points.

Without their star and Hoosier savior, the Pacers are nothing more than a lottery team, and they are going to show it once again on Wednesday against the Bucks. Milwaukee rang in the New Year almost upsetting the Raptors in Toronto, but before that the Bucks had beaten the Thunder and Wolves on back-to-back nights.

That is an impressive three-game stretch, and now back at home against the helpless Pacers, Milwaukee is going to roll tonight.

While these two teams have not met this season, Antetokounmpo routinely beat up on Pacers last season, and that was with a competent defender in Paul George guarding him. Now that it’s Bojan Bogdanovic and Lance Stephenson trying to stop him this season, the Greek Freak is going to go crazy in this one.

With no one on the other side to check or keep pace with what should be a big game from the Bucks’ star, I See Milwaukee coming away with another win and cover tonight. Milwaukee is 5-1-2 ATS in their last eight games, and they are 4-2-2 ATS in their last eight home games as well.
