NBA Totals Predictions: Pacers vs. Magic 11/20/17

Is the total set too high when the Orlando Magic host the Indiana Pacers tonight at 7PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Magic are a 3-point favorite on the spread line. The over-under is set at 221 points.

Indiana comes in with a 9-8 overall record and 10-7 ATS after a 120-95 victory at the Heat. Orlando is 8-8 overall and 8-7-1 ATS following a 125-85 home loss to the Jazz, its fourth loss in a row. The Pacers went 4-0 straight up and 4-0 ATS in four meetings last season. The over-under went 2-2.

In the win at Miami, Bojan Bogdanovic led the way with 26 points along with three rebounds and two assists. Myles Turner had 25 points, seven rebounds, four assists and four blocked shots. Victor Oladipo added 15 points, five assists and four rebounds. The Pacers outscored the hosts 62-40 in the second half.

Aaron Gordon paced the Magic with 18 points and nine rebounds in the loss to Utah. Terrence Ross contributed 12 points. Evan Fournier and Marreese Speights added 11 points apiece. Orlando was outscored 96-59 over the final three quarters.

Indiana is 6-0 ATS in its last six meetings in Orlando and 17-5 ATS in the last 22 meetings overall. The under is 6-0 for Orlando in the game after its last six ATS losses.

Bet on Pacers vs. Magic

Indiana has dominated this series as of late, but we like the under even more here. The Pacers played strong team defense in the victory at Miami, while Orlando will be focused on playing better on that end after being shredded for 125 points in its last game and losing a fourth in a row.
