Two teams sitting on opposite sides of the Eastern Conference table are clashing today, when the Indiana Pacers (36-19), looking to extend their current winning streak after losing their star player for the season, are hosting the Cleveland Cavaliers (11-43), who want to end their current small losing streak.

Date/Time: 02-09-2019, 19:00 EDT

Spread: Indiana Pacers -14.5

Total: +208.5

Indiana Pacers have a 36-19 record (28-27 against the spread) so far this season and are currently tied with the Celtics in the third place of the East. They have four consecutive wins and in their last game they won at home against the Clippers with a 116-92 score, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Victor Oladipo with 18.8 ppg, adding 5.6 boards and 5.2 dimes per game but he will miss the rest of the season with an injury. He is followed by Bojan Bogdanovic with 16.7 ppg and 4 boards per game.

Cleveland Cavaliers have a 11-44 record (24-30-1 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the second to last place of the East. They have three consecutive losses and in their last game they lost on the road against the Wizards with a 106-119 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Jordan Clarkson with 16.8 ppg and 3.4 boards off the bench. He is followed by Kevin Love with 19 ppg, 3.5 dimes and a team high 13.5 boards per game but he is out with an injury.

In their three previous meetings earlier this season the Pacers lead the Cavaliers 2-1 wins with each team having won on the road. Pacers have a 20-7 home record, while the Cavaliers are 5-23 on the road. Pacers are better both offensively, scoring 108.5 ppg to Cavs’ 102.5 and defensively, allowing 103.3 ppg to Cavs’ 113.2. They also have better percentages both in field goals (47.8% to 44.1%) and in 3-pointers (37.3% to 35.1%). Pacers are better in dimes made (26.1 to 20.4), in boards grabbed (43.4 to 42.5), while Cavaliers are only better in turnovers committed (12.7 to 13.6). Pacers are the absolute favorite at home and Vegas odds give them a -14.5 spread and expect them to beat the odds for an easy home victory.
