Pacers playing w/no rest
The Indiana Pacers are coming off a loss on Friday night. Can they quickly regroup when they host the Detroit Pistons tonight at 7PM ET?
According to oddsmakers at RealBets, the Pacers are favored at home tonight, as they are getting odds of -3.5 points against the Pistons. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 204 points.
Indiana (26-24, 25-24-1 ATS) is fresh off a 6-point loss at Atlanta last night as it now returns to action today against the Pistons (27-24, 27-23-1 ATS). Playing back-to-back has not been a strong suit for Indiana, as it is just 2-7 against the spread with no rest this season. That record is the worst of any team in the NBA.
Detroit is coming off a 111-105 win over the Knicks on Thursday night that saw it nearly blow a 27-point lead. The Pistons enter a favorable spot with their one day of rest as the Pistons are 17-12-1 ATS this season with 1 day off, which is the third-best cover percentage in the league. The Pistons have also covered in six of their last 10 meetings with Indiana.
