LINE MOVEMENT

Indiana is still the 4.5-point favorite it opened at, while the total has dropped a point from 219.5. The Pacers are at -4.5 everywhere, while the over-under seems to have settled at 218.5 points at msot sportsbooks.

As of Monday afternoon, 60 percent of public bets have come in on the visiting Lakers. Online wager info also shows that 54 percent of bets have sided with the under.

INJURY TO WATCH

Los Angeles power forward Kyle Kuzma (ankle) and center Brook Lopez (back) are probable to play today. Power forward Channing Frye (appendix) and small forward Brandon Ingram (hip flexor) are out until late March. Shooting guard Jason Hart (hand) is out until mid-April. For the Pacers, center Myles Turner (ankle) is questionable. Power forward Domantas Sabonis (ankle) is out.

BETTING STRATEGY

The Lakers won the first meeting this season on their home court by a count of 99-86 in a game in which the Pacers coudln't make hardly anything. Expect a much better effort out of Indiana on offense tonight, while LA usually doesn't need to be worried about when it comes to its offensive output. Lakers games typically involve both teams blowing past 100 points and after a low-scoring 92-91 home loss to the Heat last game, expect a fast and high-scoring game here.
