LINE MOVEMENT

Indiana opened as 2.5-point home favorites but the line has moved a full 1.5 points up to 4 at the majority of online sportsbooks. As for the total, it opened at 217.5 but was bet down to 216.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of this writing, 70% of betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks are on the Pacers to cover the point spread. Meanwhile, 60% of the betting tickets wagered online are on the under.

KEY INJURY TO WATCH

Danilo Gallinari continues to miss time with a hand injury and is once again out for the Clippers. Avery Bradley (groin) and Patrick Beverley (knee) are both out for the year. The Pacers, meanwhile, do not have any significant injuries that they are currently dealing with, although Domantas Sabonis (ankle) is out tonight.

BETTING STRATEGY

The Clippers have been a terrific team to back on the road. In their last 26 games away from their home court, they are 18-7-1 at the betting window. They are also 5-2 against the spread in their last seven road games when facing an opponent with a winning home record and have cashed in nine of their last 11 road tilts when facing a foe with a home winning percentage of greater than .600. The Clippers know that they need to string together some wins as they try to get back into the playoff race in the Western Conference and are coming off a 127-120 victory at Milwaukee on Wednesday. I say that game gives them confidence tonight as they keep it close throughout in Indiana.
