Bet Tonight's NBA Action

Who the Public Likes: As of Saturday afternoon, 76 percent of public bets have been placed on the Pacers.

Injury Report: Bulls point guard Cameron Payne will be out until mid-January after having foot surgery in September. Zach LaVine has been recovering from knee surgery and is nearing a returning, but will be out a couple more weeks. For the Pacers, Bojan Bogdanovic is questionable today with a sprained ankle. Victor Oladipo has missed the last four games with a sore right knee and is questionable today. Glenn Robinson III is out after offseason ankle surgery and could return in mid-January. 

Who the Trends Like: Chicago is 2-7 ATS in its last nine meetings in Indiana. The under is 8-1 in the last nine meetings in Indiana. The Pacers are 0-4 ATS in their last four games playing on two days of rest.

Who We Like: The Bulls have been playing high-scoring games nightly, including last night when it took down the host Mavericks behind a career-high 32 points from Kris Dunn. If Oladipo returns today, I like the over even more. But with Chicago playing uo-tempo and Indiana being in the middle of the pack, this game should find enough points to climb over the total. In the last meeting, Chicago won 119-107.
