Magic vs. Pacers Pick

NBA Predictions: Can Magic stay within number at Pacers? 1/27/18

Are the Orlando Magic going to keep it competitive tonight when they play at the Indiana Pacers? Tip-off is at 7PM ET.

Who Oddsmakers Like: Indiana. According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, the Pacers are a 6-point favorite on the spread line. The total is set for 214 points. Indiana opened as a 7.5-point fave, while the total has gone down from 217.

Bet Tonight's NBA Action

Who the Public Likes: Indiana. As of Saturday morning, 64 percent of public bets have come in on the Pacers.

Injury Report: Magic center Nikola Vucevic is out until late February with a broken hand. Jonathan Isaac is out indefinitely with an ankle injury. Terrence Ross is out indefinitely with a sprained MCL and a non-displace fracture in his knee. For the Pacers, center Myles Turner has been out with a sprained elbow and is questionable for tonight. TJ Leaf missed the last game with an ankle sprain and is questionable for tonight. Glenn Robinson III has been recovering from ankle surgery and is aiming for an early February return.

Who the Trends Like: Orlando is 1-7 ATS in the last eight meetings in Indiana and 7-19 ATS in the last 26 meetings overall. The under is 23-9 in the last 32 meetings in Indiana.

Who We Like: The Pacers are on a back-to-back and coming off a 115-108 loss last night at the Cavaliers. With Indiana being motivated to knock off the Cavs and the deflation of not getting it done, expect a letdown here. Orlando has played pretty good basketball as of late with wins at home against the T-Wolves and at Boston plus a one-point loss at Cleveland in its last four games. I like the Magic to continue their strong play tonight.
