April 21 Pacers vs Bucks NBA Playoffs Offshore betting example

Before the 2024 NBA Playoffs even started, many people warned that the Bucks would be on alert. It turns out they were wrong, as Milwaukee (49-33) isn’t even the favorite, at least in Game 1, of their Eastern Conference first-round matchup with the Pacers (47-36).

Before you bet on April 21 Pacers vs Bucks

The biggest reason why Milwaukee is an underdog on Sunday is because the health of their two biggest stars is in question. Giannis Antetokounmpo sat out the last three games of the regular season with a calf injury, and Damian Lillard is questionable for Game 1 due to a groin injury.

Lillard should be playing for Milwaukee, but this is also a Bucks team that lost six of its last eight to end the regular season when they were at full strength at times. Another reason the Bucks are underdogs in Game 1 is that Indiana is also very good, led by Tyrese Haliburton in his breakout season.

Haliburton averaged 20.9 ppg this year and led the NBA with 10.9 assists per game. Indiana also added some postseason experience by trading for Pascal Siakam (21.7 ppg) that led the Raptors to the 2019 championship. The Pacers have also played well with the Bucks this season, going 4-1 in the head-to-head series.
