Pacers at Spurs picks and predictions
Spurs 116, Pacers 113
The Pacers are only 10-20 on the road this season, but have won the 1st 2 games of this road trip. Before that, they had lost 11 straight on the road.
The Spurs spent the last 9 games on the road. They are 9-21 at home and have lost their last 5 games there.
The Pacers have only won 3 consecutive games twice this season. The Spurs have won 2 consecutive games 3 times this season.
With the Pacers as heavy favorites in this game, but not a particularly good team overall and not good on the road, this is the perfect opportunity to go for a big payout on a home underdog.
They are 2 underwhelming teams but the Spurs are playing at home for the 1st time in a month. Take a swing here and BET SPURS (+180).
The Pacers are 34-29 ATS overall this season and have covered the spread in 4 straight games. They had 2 other stretches this season with a streak of at least 5 straight covers — 9 straight between Oct. 28 and Nov. 18 and 6 straight between Dec. 27 and Jan. 6.
The Spurs are 25-37 ATS overall but only 4 times this season did they not cover the spread in one game and fail to cover a second in a row.
The best bet on the Spurs is the big payout for the outright win, but if you aren’t as convicted on the moneyline, you can still lean on the home team here. BET SPURS +5.5 (-105).
The Over is 8-0 in the Spurs’ last 8 games following a win and it is 4-0 in their last 4 Thursday games.
Only 3 of the Spurs’ last 10 games has reached 239 points while 4 of the Pacers’ last 10 have reached 239 points.
BET UNDER 238.5 (-115).
