After knocking off Toronto and covering easily as a 6-point favorite on Saturday, the Heat have now won eight of their last 10 games and are 8-2 against the spread during that same span. They're 39-26 at the betting window on the season, which includes a winning record on the road at 20-14 ATS.
The Pacers have dropped six of their last 10 games entering play on Sunday and are just 5-5 against the spread during that same span. They're 30-34 at the betting window on the season, but are 17-14 against the number at home this year.
OUR PREDICTION: Might as well keep packing the Heat until they fade. They're 4-0 against the spread in their last four games versus the Pacers and playing on back-to-back nights don't both them, because they're 9-1 against the number in their last 10 games playing on zero rest. They're also 21-5-1 against the spread in their last 27 games overall and have covered in eight of their last 11 road games. The pacers, meanwhile, are just 2-6 against the spread in their last eight conference games.
