Indiana Pacers DFS Spin
Domantas Sabonis dominated a young Memphis team on Tuesday, posting 32 points, 13 rebounds, five assists and two steals in 35 minutes. Sabonis made 13 of his 15 field goal attempts, 4-of-6 free throws and even made both of his 3-pointers. Guys like Brandon Clarke and Xavier Tillman struggled to stop the Pacers big who had 24 and 11 at halftime. Sabonis could be headed for his second All-Star Game with averages of 21/12/6 this season.

Bobby Portis came off the bench to hit 9-of-13 shots and three 3-pointers on his way to 21 points, eight rebounds, two assists, two steals and a block in a 134-106 win over the Blazers on Monday. Only Jrue Holiday's 22-point effort eclipsed that of Portis' line tonight and the 21 points tied his season high. This game was a textbook blowout which likely resulted in extra run for Portis, so we're not going to get overly excited about his big night. He had scored in single figures in five of his previous seven games but he was able to get it going tonight. Just keep an eye on him in case he starts playing like this on a more regular basis going forward.
Pacers vs. Bucks Betting Prediction
The Pacers were winless against the spread in their previous four trips to Milwaukee and are 1-5 against the number in their last six meetings with the Bucks overall. They also failed to cover in six of their last eight games despite winning outright and ATS on Tuesday night as a home favorite versus the Grizzlies. Despite Milwaukee’s 5-16-1 ATS record in its last 22 games coming off a win, I like the Bucks to cover tonight.
