Can Pacers blow out 76ers?
The Philadelphia 76ers return home tonight at 7:30PM ET to host the struggling Indiana Pacers.
According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Indiana is heavily favored on the road, as the Pacers are getting odds of -11 points against the 76ers. The over/under total for the game is listed at 203 points.
Indiana is 39-36 overall, 16-21 on the road and 36-38-1 against the spread. Philadelphia is 9-67 overall, 6-31 at home and 35-40-1 against the spread. The Pacers have won and covered the spread in both meetings this season and they have also won and covered the spread in four straight against Philly.
The Pacers are struggling at the wrong time, as they have lost two straight and three of their last four, going just 1-4 against the spread in their last five. Philly is certainly on no roll of their own, losing 11 straight, but they have covered in four of their last five. Their last three games have been against playoff teams as well. The Pacers should certainly win, as they need the victory to stay in the playoff picture in the East, but a double-digit win doesn’t seem in the cards right now.
