Indiana is 1-1 on the season following a 114-96 home loss to the Trail Blazers Friday night. Miami comes in at 0-1 after a 116-109 loss at Orlando on Wednesday. The Heat won two of three meetings last season and covered in two of the games. The total went under in all three games.

Bet on Pacers vs. Heat

With Myles Turner out and the Pacers on a back-to-back, this looks like it might have the makings of a blowout. The Heat are also salty after dropping their season opener at Orlando.
