Four games are on tap on Thursday in the NBA including the marquee match-up between the Milwaukee Bucks and Indiana Pacers. Very few will be interested in watching a tanking team against one of the best teams. Still, it is an opportunity to cash in for most basketball bettors. When most are not looking in sports betting, it’s probably the best chance to back an unlikely team and get that ATS win…

Betting Lines: Milwaukee Bucks (+15) vs. Indiana Pacers (197.5)
Game time: 10:00 am AEDT

Against the Spread (ATS)

Milwaukee Bucks Trends
- The Bucks are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games
- The Bucks are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games vs. East teams
- The Bucks are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games vs. Central division teams

Indiana Pacers Trends
- The Pacers are 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games
- The Pacers are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games vs. Bucks in Indiana
- The Pacers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games vs. Central division teams

Prediction: Milwaukee to cover, Over 197.5
 When the worst team in the NBA meet the best team in the league… Always go with the underdog, because stranger things have happened in the Association. At 11-45, Milwaukee is in full tank mode and at 43-13, Indiana badly wants that best record and the homecourt advantage the entire playoffs.

Final score prediction: Indiana Pacers 105, Milwaukee Bucks 95
