Bet Tonight's NBA Action

Who the Public Likes: Indiana. As of Sunday afternoon, 53 percent of public bets have come in on the visiting Pacers.

Injury Report: Pacers point guard Edmond Sumner has recovered from knee surgery and is questionable for today's game. Myles Turner is week-to-week with a sprained elbow. Glenn Robinson III is targeting an early February return from ankle surgery. For the Spurs, Manu Ginobili has missed the last two games with a thigh contusion and is questionable today. Rudy Gay is out indefinitely with a heel injury. Kawhi Leonard is out indefinitely with a thigh injury.

Who the Trends Like: Indiana is 4-0 ATS in the last four meetings. The under is 5-1 in the last six meetings. San Antonio is 6-0 ATS following a straight up loss.

Who We Like: As the numbers show, San Antonio is fantastic bouncing back from a loss. Indiana struggled offensively in a 99-86 loss at the Lakers its last game, shooting only 2-of-25 from 3-point range. The Spurs are not the team you want to meet when looking to sort out your offense, so expect some frustrations for the Pacers once again. While Indiana has done well in the last four meetings, expect San Antonio to have a big night from LaMarcus Aldridge to help turn the tides in this series.
