The Milwaukee Bucks travel to Bankers Life Fieldhouse tonight to take on the Indiana Pacers.
It's already been a week into the season and the Milwaukee Bucks have yet to register their first win. OK, they beat the 76ers on Friday, but we really shouldn't be counting those games anymore. On Saturday against the Wizards, Brandon Knight scored a game-high 24 points while Jerryd Bayless added 20 points off the bench, but the Bucks just couldn't take care of the ball, turning it over 28 times, with Jabari Parker being the worst offender with five. The Bucks would go on to lose the game by 108-97 which drops them to 1-2 on the season.

Meanwhile, the Indiana Pacers added yet another victim to their injury ward with Rodney Stuckey reinjuring his troublesome left foot in the first quarter of a 102-92 loss at Atlanta on Saturday. All five starters for the Pacers finished in double digits in scoring but trailed for the entire contest against a Hawks team which shot over 50 percent from the field. The only real bright spot for the game was the play of Chris Copeland who made six threes en route to a team-high 21 points off the bench. In injury news, the Pacers may get back the services of David West on Tuesday after missing the first three games with a sprained ankle.
In ATS trends, the Bucks are 3-1-1 ATS in their last five games following a loss and 1-4-1 ATS in their last six road games, while the Pacers are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games following a loss and 5-1 ATS in their last six games playing on two days rest.
Head to head, the Bucks are 1-4 ATS in the last five meetings in Indiana and the Home team is 7-2 ATS in the last nine overall.
I could have seen this line up to three times what it is making the Pacers an easy pick.
