NBA Betting Trends

Indiana

The Pacers are 4-0 ATS in their last five Wednesday games. The under is 7-1 in the last eight Indiana games on Wednesdays.

New York

The Knicks are 4-0 ATS in the last four home meetings versus the Pacers. The under is 6-1 in the last seven meetings in New York.

Prediction:

New York has struggled to find the right starting lineup, but did look good last game at home versus the Nets. The Knicks are 2-2 at home with a blowout loss to the Warriors in which they actually hung around for quite a while. In addition to two blowout wins, they have a 103-101 loss to Boston. It seems like New York is actually a fairly competitive team when on its home floor. Indiana is a solid but unremarkable team and didn't look all that good last time. I'm taking the points with the home team tonight.
