NBA FREE PICK: Take Indiana. According to latest NBA trends, Indiana is 5-0 ATS in their last 5 road games,  9-1 ATS in their last 10 after scoring 100 points or more in their previous game, 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games following a ATS win,  13-5 ATS in their last 18 games overall and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games following a SU win of more than 10 points. Miami is 2-8 ATS in their last 10 vs. NBA Central and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 home games.

Indiana (39-23 SU, 35-27 ATS, 26-35-1 O/U) has won three of the last four games including an easy 115-86 win over Orlando on Friday, laying 9 on the road.  Miami (46-14 SU, 31-29 ATS, 30-29-1 O/U) has won 17 straight games and the last time they lost was on February 1 against the Pacers. Indiana has won all two meetings this season with the Heat. They are a difficult team to play for the Heat because they have a lot of size led by 7-foot-2 Roy Hibbert and 6-foot-9 David West, who had 30 points in their last meeting. Paul George, who can play small forward or shooting guard at 6-foot-10, can also give LeBron James issues with his length. The streak will be in danger but even if it continues, Indiana covers.
