According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Pacers are a slight favorite on the road, as they are getting odds of -1 point against the Mavericks. The over/under total for the game has been set at 204 points.
Dallas is 33-32 on the season, 19-15 at home and 34-30-1 against the spread. Indiana is 34-30 overall, 15-19 on the road and 32-31-1 against the spread. Indiana has won the lone meeting this season, 107-81 at home. The Pacers have also won and covered the spread in three straight meetings with Dallas.
The Mavs are struggling, having lost four straight, including three straight at home. The Pacers are coming off a nice 99-91 win over the Spurs early in the week and they have won three of their last four while covering in four of their last five. However, Indiana is dealing with some injuries, which should hurt its depth in this game. The Mavericks are due to kick out of this slump and being a home underdog today should help. Look for Dallas to right the ship this afternoon.
