Pacers vs. Cavs Prediction
Will the Pacers cover as a road underdog tonight when they visit the Cavs at 7:00PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Cavs are 6-point home favorites versus the Pacers while the over/under currently sits at 219.5 points. While the point spread hasn't moved off the total number, the over/under has climbed from 218 up to 219.5.
INDIANA KEY TRENDS: The Pacers are 4-0 against the spread in their last four road games and are 5-1-1 against the number in their last seven games after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game. They've also covered in nine of their last 12 games when taking on Eastern Conference opponents.
CLEVELAND KEY TRENDS: The Cavs are hot at the betting window, covering in six of their last seven games overall and going 6-1 against the spread in their last seven games after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game. They're also 11-4-1 at the betting window in their last 16 conference games.
OUR PREDICTION: The Pacers are an impressive 7-1-1 against the spread in their last nine games against the Cavs and are 7-3-1 at the betting window in their last 11 games overall. On the other side, the Cavs are winless against the number in their last four games when playing on no rest and are just 1-6 against the spread in their last seven games when their starting five players combine for more than 160 minutes on the previous day. With the Cavs playing on tired legs, the Pacers should be able to hang tonight.
