Milwaukee Bucks vs Indiana Pacers Betting Analysis

Pacers Fall Short in Game 5: Offense Stalls in Crucial Elimination Game

Indiana’s performance in the Game 5 loss fell short of expectations, with the Pacers scoring a mere 92 points, marking the second time in this series that they failed to reach the 100-point mark, resulting in a loss on both occasions. In contrast, their winning games saw them score 125, 121, and 126 points respectively.

Pascal Siakam scored just 12 points, while Tyrese Haliburton added 16 in the defeat, shooting a combined 11 of 26 from the field. Despite this loss, Siakam has shown strength earlier in the series, notably with impressive performances of 36 and 37 points. Haliburton also made his mark with a 24-point display in the Game 4 victory.

During the regular season, Indiana stood as the league’s top-scoring team, narrowly beating out Oklahoma City and Milwaukee. Their offense averaged over 123 points per game, with an impressive field goal percentage of 50.7% and an average of 13.2 three-pointers made per game.

Bucks Rise to the Occasion: All Starters Score in Double Figures

In the absence of Giannis Antetokounmpo and Damian Lillard, the Milwaukee Bucks needed players to step up, and they delivered in their home win. All five starters reached double figures, with Bobby Portis and Kris Middleton leading the charge with 29 points each, complemented by Portis’ 10 rebounds and Middleton’s 12.

The absence of their star duo equates to a big time loss of over 50 points per game. Giannis Antetokounmpo had been massive with scoring outputs of 35, 34, and 28 points in the games he participated in this series, while Damian Lillard, the former Portland Trail Blazers point guard, mirrored these numbers.

Throughout the regular season, Milwaukee maintained an offensive power, averaging 119 points per game, shooting at a 48.7% clip from the field, and sinking more than 14 three-pointers per game. However, they faced challenges towards the end of the season, finishing in a 2-6 record in April before entering the postseason.

Milwaukee Bucks vs Indiana Pacers Betting Picks

The Milwaukee Bucks know they have to win two more to stay alive and move on. They would be doing it against all the odds. Their top two scorers out, playing against the top scoring team in the league. The Bucks are going to battle. The Bucks are going to play hard. But, in the end, the Bucks are going to fall short. Indiana gets the job done, and pulls the series upset in this one. Our final bet for this game is the Milwaukee Bucks +7.5 to cover the spread, but the Indiana Pacers to win the game. Enjoy the game and good luck!
