Spread: Indiana Pacers -6
Indiana Pacers have a 35-19 record (27-27 against the spread) so far this season and are currently tied with the Celtics in the third place of the East. They have three consecutive wins and in their last game they won at home against the Lakers with a 136-94 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 16.4 ppg and 4 boards per game.
Los Angeles Clippers have a 30-25 record (30-25 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the 8th place of the West. They have won two of their last three matches and in their last game they won on the road against the Hornets with a 117-115 score, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Lou Williams with 19.4 ppg off the bench, while Danilo Gallinari follows with 19 ppg and 6 boards per game but he is out with an injury.
Pacers won both meetings against the Clippers last season (at home by 5 points and on the road by 7). Pacers have a 19-7 home record, while the Clippers are 15-13 on the road. Clippers are better offensively, scoring 114 ppg to Pacers’ 108.4, while Pacers are better defensively, allowing 103.5 pgg to Clippers’ 113.6. Pacers have a better field goal percentage (47.6% to 47%), while Clippers have a better 3-point percentage (38.6% to 37.2%). Clippers are better in boards grabbed (45.4 to 43.5), while Pacers are better in dimes made (26.1 to 23) and both teams are almost equal in turnovers committed (13.5 to 13.7). Pacers are the favorite at home and Vegas odds give them a -6 spread and expect them to beat the odds against a Clippers team playing without two of their three best scorers this season.
