Bet Tonight's NBA Action

Who the Public Likes: Indiana. As of Thursday afternoon, 55 percent of public bets have sided with the visiting Pacers.

Injury Report: Pacers center Myles Turner is week-to-week with an elbow strain. Glenn Robinson III is targeting an early February return from an ankle injury. Edmond Sumner is out indefinitely as he recovers from knee surgery. For the Trail Blazers, CJ Wilcox is out indefinitely as he recovers from knee surgery.

Who the Trends Like: Indiana is 1-5 ATS in its last six meetings overall and 1-4 ATS in its last four meetings in Portland. The over is 4-1 in the last five meetings.

Who We Like: The Pacers have struggled in this matchup the last few years and although they have won their last three, the Trail Blazers present the type of team that is strong defensively and will slow down their potent 3-point shooters. Turner being out also doesn't help. Portland ended its three-game losing skid with a 118-111 home victory over the Suns last game and I expect its upward trend to continue here.
