Pacers vs. Bucks prediction, odds: Historic NBA total set
Indiana eliminated Milwaukee from the NBAs inaugural In-Season Tournament last Thursday in Las Vegas before falling to the Lakers in the title game.
The Pacers have had the Bucks number this season, beating them twice.
The third matchup is Wednesday, but this time Indiana makes its first trip to Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee.
In the most recent matchup in Las Vegas, the Pacers outlasted the Bucks, 128-119, as 5.5-point underdogs.
Tyrese Haliburton led Indiana with 27 points and 15 assists, and the Pacers won in spite of missing 26 of 33 attempts from three-point range.
Milwaukee seeks its 11th consecutive home victory after edging Chicago in overtime on Monday, 133-129. Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 32 points in the win, but the Bucks failed to cover as 11.5-point favorites.
The biggest story heading into this matchup is the total, which sits at 258.5 the highest of any game in the NBA this season.
If it closes at that number, it would be the highest over/under in more than 30 years, per Action Network researcher Evan Abrams. The Warriors and Paul Westheads Nuggets in 1991 closed at 259.
