Pacers stop slide

Indiana stopped a four-game losing streak on Sunday when the Pacers picked up a 124-88 win at home over Denver. Indiana currently sits in the fourth spot in the East. The Pacers are 45-29 on the season, 17-20 on the road, 37-37 against the spread and 43-31 with the under.

The Pacers have the league’s top defense this season. They are giving up just 103.9 points per game while holding opponents to 44.9 percent shooting. Offensively, Indiana is putting up 107.9 points per game while opponents shoot 47.5 percent from the field. Darren Collison is questionable to play in this game due to a quad injury. Bojan Bogdanovic is leading the team with 17.9 points and 4.1 rebounds per game while Domantas Sabonis is adding 14.1 points and 9.3 rebounds per contest.

OKC falls again

Oklahoma City is coming off a 115-103 loss at Memphis on Monday night. The Thunder have lost and failed to cover in five of their last six games. They are currently tied for the last spot in the West right now. OKC is 43-31 on the season, 23-12 at home, 37-37 against the spread and 37-36-1 with the under.

The Thunder are putting up 114.3 points per game this season while shooting 45.3 percent from the field. Defensively, OKC is giving up 111.1 points per game while opponents shoot 45.9 percent from the floor. Paul George is leading the team with 28.2 points, 8.2 rebounds and 4.2 assists per game while Russell Westbrook is adding 23.0 points, 11.0 rebounds and 10.4 assists per game.

NBA Betting Trends

Indiana

The Pacers are just 1-7 against the spread in their last eight road games and 0-5 ATS in their last five Wednesday games.

Oklahoma City

The Thunder are 15-5 against the spread in their last 20 against Central Division opponents, but just 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games following a loss.

Prediction:

Indiana and OKC haven’t been playing good basketball lately, but I think tonight’s game favors the Thunder. Indiana just doesn’t have enough fire power on offense to contend with OKC. The Thunder still have Westbrook and George and those two should be able to produce at home. The Pacers haven’t had their defense translate on the road nearly as well as it does at home.

NBA Prediction: Oklahoma City Thunder -6
