LINE MOVEMENT

The Nuggets opened as 3-point home favorites but the line climbed a full point to 4 at the majority of online sportsbooks. As for the total, it hit the board at 216.5 but has dropped all the way down to 211.5.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of this writing, 56% of the betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks are on the Nuggets to cover the point spread tonight. Meanwhile, 65% of the betting tickets are on the over.

KEY INJURY TO WATCH

The Pacers are healthy. They don’t have a single player listed on their injury report ahead of tonight’s game. On the other side, Wilson Chandler (nose) is probable for the Nuggets but Gary Harris (knee) is out.

BETTING STRATEGY

The Pacers have covered the spread in four of their last five games, are 5-0 against the number in their last five road games versus an opponent with a home winning percentage of greater than .600, and are 4-0 at the betting window in their last four games versus a team with a winning record. On the other side, the Nuggets are just 2-6 against the spread in their last eight home games, are 2-5 at the betting window in their last seven games playing on one day of rest, and have covered just twice of their last 13 games when their opponent scores 100 points or more in its previous game. I look for Victor Oladipo to lead the Pacers to an upset victory over Nikola Jokic and Co, or at least cover the four points.
