LINE MOVEMENT

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.

PUBLIC BETTING

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.

INJURY TO WATCH

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.

BETTING STRATEGY

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.
