NBA Betting Trends
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.
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.
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.
