Who the Public Likes: Indiana. A total of 74 percent of bettors like the Pacers to cover the spread on its home floor

Injury Report: Seth Curry has been out all season for the Mavs with a stress reaction in his tibia. Nerlens Noel is recovering from surgery on his left thumb to repair a damaged ligament and is expected back in mid-January. Glenn Robinson is expected to return in mid-January for the Pacers after offseason ankle surgery.

Who the Trends Like: Dallas is 1-5 ATS in its last six meetings in Dallas and 1-5 ATS in its last six meetings overall. The over is 6-1 in the last seven meetings. 

Who We Like: Both teams are coming off a back-to-back, with the Mavericks winning 98-93 at home against Toronto while the Pacers were drilled 107-83 at Detroit. Indiana is 11-7 straight up at home this season, but what really stands out is Dallas being only 2-14 straight up on the road. Coming off a big home win, expect the Mavericks to lay an egg here. This kind of travel makes it difficult for any NBA team and after upsetting the Raptors, not as much emphasis will be put on winning here.
