NBA Betting Trends
The Nets have covered the spread in four straight on 1 day of rest, but are 4-10 against the spread in their last 14 games following a loss.
The Pacers are 0-4 against the spread in their last four games as a favorite, and in their last four home games.
The Pacers have won and covered in the two meetings with the Nets in Brooklyn, but I think they are giving up too many points tonight. Indiana has really not looked good recently, as they can’t seem to find their stride with Victor Oladipo back in the lineup. I think they will eventually, but I can’t trust them to run past this Brooklyn team. The Nets aren’t at full strength, but they have been competing in recent weeks and I expect them to keep things close.
