Milwaukee Bucks vs Indiana Pacers Game 3: BETTING TIPS, PREDICTION & BETTING ODDS

It’s not a series until a road team wins a game and that’s exactly what happened in Game 2 as the Pacers pulled off the upset 125-108. With home court advantage out of their hands now, all the pressure is on Milwaukee going into the next two games and I’m curious to see how they respond. The status of Giannis Antetokounmpo is still up in the air, Khris Middleton also joins him on the injury report with a ankle problem. The main priority in Game 3 for the Bucks will be to slow down Pascal Siakam who has absolutely destroyed them in the first 2 games. The problem is they don’t have anyone adequate on their roster to play him one-on-one if Giannis isn’t available, so it’ll have to be a team effort to slow him down tonight.

Pacers head coach Rick Carlisle shortened the rotation from 11 to 8 players in Game 2, switched Siakam into the post and attacked Brook Lopez from the perimeter. All that resulted in a masterpiece of a win, but now the Pacers have to double down in their first postseason home game this year. Tyrese Haliburton added more fuel to the fire in the post-game presser by saying the Milwaukee crowd felt like a regular season game, these two teams already have a history between them after what happened in the regular season. Siakam’s two performances in Milwaukee were outstanding, he became the first player since Wilt Chamberlain in 1967 to open the postseason with back-to-back 35-point and 10-rebound performances.

Indiana Pacers Point Spread Prediction

Pacers -4.5 Point Spread is available at -110 odds

Unless Giannis returns, I am expecting a similar game to the one we saw on Tuesday in Milwaukee. Indy won both regular season meetings at home this year, dropping 142 and 126 points in the process. Their offense might be too much for the shorthanded Bucks to handle here. I’ll go with Indiana.

Milwaukee Bucks vs Indiana Pacers Game 3 Total Points: Over 221.5

Over 221.5 Total Points is available at -110 odds

In Game 1 the Pacers posted their lowest point total of the season while shooting their lowest percentage from the field, but all that is behind them now after their superb bounce back performance the next game. This team led the NBA averaging 123.3 points per game, Game 3 will be all about the home crowd and the energy that the Pacers will feed off of. They finished the regular season 25-16 on the O/U when playing at the Gainbridge Fieldhouse, this bet has now cashed in 9 of the 12 meetings between these two teams. If we look at just Indiana home games in this match-up, the over is 5-0 in the last 5 games played. The Bucks defense has been very inconsistent, so it’s really hard to trust them here, especially without Giannis and potentially Middleton. This team has allowed 125, 113 and 125 in 3 of their last 4 games. Their defensive rating over the last 10 games of the regular season ranked just 18th in the NBA, it could be a struggle against a motivated high scoring Pacers team here. I’ll back the points once again here.
