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…
