Pacers vs Bucks Picks & Prediction

It's easy to bail on the Bucks here with Giannis Antetokounmpo likely sidelined with a calf injury.

Milwaukee missed the "Greek Freak" for a majority of its first-round series loss to Miami last season, but the Bucks do have Damian Lillard at their disposal this time around.

The Pacers made plenty of headlines early on in the season with their fast pace and leading the NBA in scoring.

Indiana won four of five matchups with Milwaukee this season, including a pair of victories at Fiserv Forum.

Down the stretch, the Pacers beat the likes of the Clippers, Thunder, Mavericks, and Magic on the road.

However, Indiana is flipped to a favorite against Milwaukee, a role the Pacers have not seen when facing the Bucks this season.

There's no word when Giannis will return to the Milwaukee lineup, but let's back the Bucks in this short underdog spot in the series opener.

Pick: Bucks +1 (-110)
