Bet Of The Day May 1 – read on below for our reasoning behind today’s best bet.

Key Points

  • The Indiana Pacers have played in 75 out of 82 games this season where the total points have exceeded 217 points.
  • The Bucks have played in 66 games this season out of 82 where the total points have gone over 217.
  • These two teams have averaged a total of 242.3 when playing each other including exactly 239 in their last two encounters.
  • The Bucks have combined for an average of 222.7 points with their opponents in their last 10 games.

  • Turner has hit at 40% or better from behind the three point arc in his last three straight games including seven of nine in game four.


Milwaukee are looking to keep their series alive on Wednesday against the Pacers when they head back to the Fiserv Forum down 1-3.

The Bucks have been without their star player Giannis Antetokounmpo for the first four games of this series and he is again in doubt for game five with a calf strain.

The hopes of the home team also rest on the availability of Damian Lillard who is no certainty to take the court with an achilles injury.

Khris Middleton, Brook Lopez and Bobby Portis, who was ejected in game four, will again play a key role in the home teams’ chances especially if their stars remain on the sideline.

It makes this a tough game to predict in terms of a head to head betting play but this series has been a scoring fest so far and that looks to continue as the Bucks look to keep the series alive.

Myles Turner averaged just 17.1 points during the regular season but has been a weapon from beyond the arc during the playoffs and is scoring at will.

He is averaging 24.3 points so far this series and looks a good play to cover 15 points in this match up again.
