The Bucks are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.

Randy’s Free Pick

The Milwaukee Bucks have been shaky at best on the road this season, but this is a game they should cruise. The Indiana Pacers are dealing with oodles of injuries, and they’re losing their last 5 games by an average of 9.6 points while allowing 51.5 percent shooting. With Middleton back in the mix, the Bucks should soon find their stride. I’ll lay the chalk, given the Pacers current from.
