Bet Tonight's NBA Action

Who the Public Likes: Indiana. As of Saturday morning, 58 percent of public bets have sided with Indiana.

Injury Report: Sixers guard Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot missed the last game with an illness and is questionable tonight. Jerryd Bayless has been out with a wrist injury and is out indefinitely. Furkan Korkmaz is out until mid-February with a lisfranc injury. Markelle Fultz is out indefinitely with a shoulder injury. For the Pacers, forward Glenn Robinson III has been out with an ankle injury and is targeting a mid-February return.

Who the Trends Like: The 76ers are 1-4 ATS in the last five meetings in Indiana and 3-7 ATS in the last 10 meetings overall. The over is 5-1 in the last six meetings.

Who We Like: For the first time in his NBA career, Philadelphia center Joel Embiid is expected to play in the second end of a back-to-back. That is big news for Philadelphia, which is comingoff a 103-97 home win over the Heat. Indiana struggled last night at Charlotte and I'm definitely siding with the Sixers here. They are a different team with Embiid in the lineup and there will be an extra boost knowing he is active on a day where he normally rests.
