Indiana Pacers vs Milwaukee Bucks Game 5: BETTING TIPS, PREDICTION & BETTING ODDS

A lot of people sided with the Indiana Pacers prior to this series tipping-off and now we see why. Indiana has now won the last 3 games and is on the verge of advancing to the next round, if they can close it out on the road against a wounded Bucks team. After struggling in Game 1, we’re now seeing the familiar Pacers offense which led this team to a 47-win season. They’ve now scored 120+ in 3 straight, led by their dynamic duo of Pascal Siakam and Tyrese Haliburton. This team doesn’t have all that much experience with closeout games, but momentum and health are two key factors they have on their side heading into Game 5. In 9 games played vs Milwaukee this year, Indy has recorded 7 wins.

The Bucks just cannot catch a break with all the injuries hurting them right now. First it was Giannis Antetokounmpo, then Damian Lillard and now even Khris Middleton sprained his ankle in Game 4. Playing without their 3 leading scorers potentially, the Bucks are just 3.5 point underdogs here, I must say I’m not quite sure where the optimism is coming from. This team has covered the spread just 5 times in their last 15 games, but more importantly they’ve got the 2nd worst defensive rating in these playoffs allowing 121 points per 100 possessions. Forcing turnovers is another area where this team needs to improve, they finished the regular season with the 2nd fewest turnovers forced. It’s really hard to find any positives for Milwaukee ahead of Game 5.

Indiana Pacers Point Spread Prediction

Pacers -3.5 Point Spread is available at -110 odds

Giannis, Dame and Middleton account for more than 70 points per game, without them the Bucks will have a hard time keeping up with the high scoring Pacers here. There’s no point for Indiana to give the Bucks any extra lives here, I’m backing them to close it out on Tuesday.

Indiana Pacers vs Milwaukee Bucks Game 5 Total Points: Over 214.5

Over 214.5 Total Points is available at -110 odds

Aside from the series opener, backing the over has been very profitable in this series so far with that bet cashing in the last 3 games. The main reason for that is the style of play Indiana is sticking to. The Pacers are once again the 2nd best offensive team efficiency wise in the postseason, averaging 121 points per 100 possessions. Milwaukee is 4th despite all the absences through injuries, but that is a bit misleading as the Pacers don’t really care too much about defense and as a result most of their opponents put up high numbers. I expect that trend to continue in Game 5. Indiana just knocked down 22 threes over the weekend to take a commanding 3-1 lead and with the opportunity to move on here, I believe they’ll be highly motivated to put on another shooting clinic. They’ve shot over 50% in 2 of the last 3 games, the Bucks defense simply isn’t equipped to handle a high octane offense like theirs. The over has cashed in 8 of 9 for Indiana and in 5 of 7 for Milwaukee. With the O/U record going 4-1 in the last 5 meetings, there’s really no point in changing our approach here. Stick with the over.
