Orlando Magic vs Indiana Pacers Picks, Spread and Prediction

Date/Time: 01-22-2021, 19:00 EDT Spread: Indiana Pacers -3 Total: +217

In this all-Eastern showdown, the Indiana Pacers (8-6), are hosting the Orlando Magic (7-8). The hosts have back-to-back losses and are looking to bounce back. On the other hand, the guests snapped a six-game losing streak and want to continue on the winning ways.

The Pacers have an 8-6 record (8-6 ATS, 8-6 O/U) and 4th in the East. In their last game they got defeated by the Mavericks at home, 112-124, not beating the odds. They are 2-4 ATS in their last 6 games. The Magic have a 7-8 record (7-8 ATS, 6-8-1 O/U) and are 9th in the East. In their last game they defeated the Timberwolves on the road, 97-96, not beating the odds. They are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games.

Indiana swept Orlando 3-0 wins last season. They won both home games by 11 and 5 points. Over is 5-2 in their last 7 meetings. Over is 5-0 in their last 5 meetings. Pacers are 4-4 at home, while Magic are 4-5 on the road. Pacers are better offensively (112.9 to 104 ppg), while Magic are better defensively (109.7 to 110.8 ppg). Orlando has the third-worse offense and the worse percentages both in FG’s and 3pts in the league.

I’m going to pick the Pacers with -3 today. Even without Myles Turner as a counter to Nikola Vucevic, the Pacers have the depth to prevail against one of the worse offenses in the league.
