TV: N/A, 10:30 p.m. ET
Indiana opened as 3-point road favorites but the line has since jumped a full three points to 6 at the majority of online sportsbooks. As for the total, it hit the board at 203 but was bet down to 201.
As of this writing, 80% of the betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks are on the Pacers to cover the spread tonight. Meanwhile, 65% of the betting tickets wagered online are on the over.
KEY INJURY TO WATCH
As of this writing, Kevin Durant (ribs) is doubtful, Draymond Green (illness) is questionable, and both Steph Curry (knee) and Klay Thompson (thumb) are out. The Pacers, meanwhile, are relatively healthy.
Given all their injuries, the Warriors have been a bad bet of late. They're just 3-9 against the spread in their last 12 games overall, are 0-7 at the betting window in their last seven games playing on one day of rest, and are 0-6 against the number in their last six games when facing an opponent with a winning record. They're also 1-9 ATS in their last 10 games when their opponent scores 100 points or more in its previous game. On the other side, the Pacers have covered the spread in nine of their last 13 games, are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game, and are 11-4 against the spread in their last 15 games when their opponent allows 100 points or more in its previous contest.
