PACERS KEY TRENDS: The Pacers have not fared well at the betting window as a road team, failing to cover in eight of their last 11 games away from their home court. They're also just 3-7 against the spread in their lat 10 road games when playing an opponent with a losing home record. Indiana has not been sharp coming off wins either, going 3-9 at the betting window in its last 12 games following a victory.

HEAT KEY TRENDS: Miami hasn't fared much better coming off wins, posting a 2-7 record against the spread in its last nine games following victory. That said, the Heat are 11-4 at the betting window in their last 15 games versus Central opponents and have covered in 10 of their last 13 home games when playing a team with a losing road record.

OUR PREDICTION: The Pacers are looking to win their third consecutive game but they haven't won three in a row all season, which speaks to their inconsistency in 2016. They're coming off an impressive won over Charlotte, holding the hornets to 33.3 percent from the floor on Monday night, but they're still a below-average defensive team this season. Miami, meanwhile, has a better defensive efficiency ranking this season, a better turnover margin, and won both meetings with Indiana at home last season. In fact, the Heat are 6-2 against the spread in their last eight games against the Pacers at home.
