Hornets vs. Pacers Pick

NBA Predictions: Will Pacers secure home win over Hornets? 1/29/18

Are the host Indiana Pacers going to impress at home tonight when they play the Charlotte Hornets? Game time is 7PM ET.

Who Oddsmakers Like: Indiana. According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Pacers are a 3-point favorite on the spread line. The total is set for 214 points. Indiana opened as a 4-point fave, while the over-under has remained at 214.

Bet Tonight's NBA Action

Who the Public Likes: Indiana. As of Monday morning, 72 percent of public bets are coming in on the Pacers.

Injury Report: Hornets point guard Michael Carter-Williams missed the last game with a shoulder strain and is questionable for tonight. Cody Zeller is recovering from surgery on his meniscus and is out until mid-February. For Indiana, forward TJ Leaf has missed the last two games with a sprained ankle and is questionable. Glenn Robinson III is out until early February as he recovers from ankle surgery.

Who the Trends Like: Charlotte is 9-3-1 ATS in the last 13 meetings. The under is 20-7 in the last 27 meetings in Indiana and 14-6-1 in the last 21 meetings overall.

Who We Like: Indiana has been playing good basketball for the most part lately, winning three of its last four games. The first half was a disaster for the Pacers in their last game versus the Magic, but they overcame a 21-point deficit to record a 114-112 home victory over the Magic. I feel the spread for tonight's game is a bit too small as the Hornets are only 6-14 straight up on the road, while Indiana is 16-10 at home and did not travel between games. Roll with the hosts here.
