Tips For Betting On Bucks Pacers – Pacers Look To Build On Central Division Lead Versus Struggling Bucks

Posted by Craig Parsons on 1/3/2013 5:53:59 PM

The Indiana Pacers have been the hottest team in the Eastern Conference over the past two weeks. With the struggling Milwaukee Bucks in town this Saturday, the Pacers are hoping they can keep it going and move even further ahead of their division rivals in the Central standings. Indiana has won eight of its last 10 sports betting contests to climb to fourth in the conference, and their success has been based around a dominant record at home after winning 11 of their first 14 games at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Milwaukee has taken the first two games in this season series, but this will be the Pacers first game against them at home.

The Bucks meanwhile had dropped back-to-back games before Friday’s date with the Houston Rockets, losing to both the Detroit Pistons and San Antonio Spurs. Milwaukee has slipped below both the Pacers and Chicago Bulls during their recent slide, even despite maintaining a .500 record on the road.

A tough loss to Detroit was the real problem for a Bucks’ team that was no match for the Spurs, and now they should have some urgency as the look to get back on track. Monta Ellis has averaged a team-high 19.6 points per game for an offense that ranks near the middle of the NBA following by Brandon Jennings with 18, but Milwaukee will need more from its secondary scorers such as Mike Dunleavy and Ersan Ilyasova. The Bucks posted an average of 98.5 points in their first two wins over Indiana, but will have a tougher test on the road.

The Pacers will need to respond after letting Jennings, Dunleavy, and company have their way with them in the last meeting, and it should help that Roy Hibbert is looking healthy this time around. Indiana turned the ball over 20 times in the last meeting, but have been much more careful protecting the ball at home than on the road. Indiana ranks second in the NBA in average points allowed and fifth in rebounding, but their offense has been inconsistent all season and will need veterans like David West and Paul George to step it up while doing their thing at the defensive end of the floor.

NBA Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

Speed was the difference in the first two meetings between these teams, and while the Bucks should have a tougher time on the road don’t expect them to let this game slip away. Milwaukee has suffered some tough beats of late and need to play with urgency to get back on track. The Bucks have had the Pacers’ number so far this season, and while they may not be able to steal one on the road, they should at least be able to keep this online betting contest close down to the wire.
