Bet Tonight's NBA Action

Who the Public Likes: Indiana. As of Wednesday afternoon, 79 percent of public bets have sided with the Pacers.

Injury Report: Heat forward James Johnson is questionable due to possible suspension following an on-court altercation. Tyler Johnson is doubtful with a shoulder injury which forced him to miss the last game. Okaro White is out of action until the All-Star break with a foot injury. Dion Waiters is out indefinitely with an ankle injury. Justise Winslow is out indefinitely with a knee strain. Rodney McGruder is out until mid-April after surgery in October for a stress fracture in his leg. For the Pacers, Domantas Sabonis is probable despite dealing with a wrist injury. Myles Turner is doubtful tonight with a sore elbow. Glen Robinson III is targeting an early February return after ankle surgery. Edmond Sumner is out indefinitely after knee surgery in October.

Who the Trends Like: Miami is 1-5 ATS in its last six meetings in Indiana, but 5-2 ATS in its last seven meetings overall. The under is 8-3 in the last 11 meetings in Indiana.

Who We Like: Miami still has a number of injuries, but has managed to overcome all that to play some outstanding basketball as of late with five straight wins including last night's 90-89 upset win at the Raptors. But now it faces a foe playing just as well as the Pacers welcomed Victor Oladipo back to the lineup by smoking both the Bulls and Bucks at home. The Heat are on a back-to-back and have struggled in recent years at Indiana. I'm going with the hosts to cover this one.
