Will update with trends once they're released.
The Indiana Pacers beat the Bucks less than a month ago, and they're playing impressive ball as of late, which includes 47.4 percent shooting from the field and 36.3 percent shooting from deep in their last five games. This is also the first time this season the Pacers are a double-digit underdog. The Milwaukee Bucks should be eager for a bounce back performance after getting roughed up by the Miami Heat, but they're just 14-17 against the spread this season as a double-digit favorite. The Indiana Pacers are simply playing too well and are too good of a team to turn down this many points.
