Bet Today's NBA Action

Who the Public Likes: Utah. As of Monday afternoon, 54 percent of public bets have been placed on the Jazz.

Injury Report: Pacers center Myles Turner has missed the last three games with a sore elbow and is questionable tonight. Glenn Robinson III is targeting an early February return from ankle surgery. Edmond Sumner is out indefinitely after knee surgery. For the Jazz, Thabo Sefolosha is out for the season after suffering an MCL injury. Rudy Gobert is targeting a late January return from a PCL injury. Raul Neto is out indefinitely with a brain injury and a bone bruise. Dante Exum is out indefinitely after shoulder surgery.

Who the Trends Like: Indiana is 2-5 ATS in its last seven meetings in Utah. The over is 4-1 in the last five meetings in UTah and 4-1 in the last five meetings overall.

Who We Like: These two teams have consistently played higher-scoring games against each other than what oddsmakers believed would happen. With Gobert out, the Jazz play a little faster. Indiana is efficient and fairly up-tempo offensively regardless of the opponent. The Pacers have scored at least 109 points in four of their last five games. Utah is capable of high-scoring games against the right opponent and I believe this is a good spot for that to happen.
