The Milwaukee Bucks invade Bankers Life Fieldhouse looking to beat the Indiana Pacers tonight.

The Bucks hast lost six of their last eight but will be looking to build on a 130-110 win at Philadelphia on Monday. OJ Mayo returned to form with seven three pointers on his way to a team-high 25 points, while Ersan Ilyasova added 20 points but this game was over before people finished their popcorn as the Bucks led by 73-44 going into halftime. With the win, Philadelphia improve to 11-45 on the season and 5-22 on the road where they had lost 10 straight before Monday.

Meanwhile, the Pacers have won eight of their last 11 games and will be going for a third straight win after making light work of the Lakers last night. The Pacers' defense in the first half allowed the Lakers to score 54 points, but it was a game of two halves as the Pacers flipped the game on a 34-16 third quarter before cruising to a 118-98 win. Paul George led seven players in double figures while Evan Turner added 13 points in his debut as the newest Pacers recruit.

In ATS trends, the Bucks are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games overall and 0-5 ATS in their last five games following a win of more than 10 points, while the Pacers are 1-3-1 ATS in their last five games overall and 1-4 ATS in their last five games following a win.

Head to head, the home team is 7-0 ATS in the last seven meetings and the Bucks are 0-4 ATS in the last four meetings in Indiana.

These teams last met on Saturday and it was the Pacers who broke out to a massive lead before allowing the Bucks to come back and keep the score respectable, but I'm expecting more of a clinical performance from the Pacers here. You should wait on the official line, but I'm liking the home team to cover almost any reasonable spread here.
