Pacers vs. Hawks Pick

NBA Predictions: Will Pacers cover as road favorites at Hawks? 2/28/18

Are the visiting Indiana Pacers the right play for bettors tonight when they take on the Atlanta Hawks at 7:30PM ET?


According to oddsmakers at YouWager, the Pacers are a 5.5-point favorite on the spread line. The total is set at 214 points.

Indiana opened as a 5-point favorite before the hook was added on. The total has gone up from 212 points. The spread can still be found at 5 at certain books, while the total can also be found at 213.5.


As of Wednesday afternoon, 87 percent of public bets have poured in on the visiting Pacers. Online wager info also shows that 67 percent of bets are coming in on the over.


Indiana point guard Darren Collison is out until early March after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery several weeks ago. For the Hawks, backup point guard Malcolm Delaney has missed two straight games iwth a knee strain and is questionable tonight.


The Pacers have won straight up and covered the spread in four straight meetings with Atlanta including twice this season. I'm going to say that trend continues tonight as the Hawks have struggled considerably since pushing toward their youth movement even harder as of late with John Collins moving into the starting lineup and various role players seeing increased time. Indiana is still playing for something and it should show up in the box score tonight as it covers the 5.5.
