The Under is 9-4-1 in Indiana’s last 14 vs. NBA Southeast. The Pacers are 4-1 ATS in their last five road games. The Over is 5-1 in Pacers last six road games.
Orlando is 12-3 ATS in their last 15 vs. NBA Central. The Under is 4-1 in Magic’s last five overall. The Over is 4-0 in Magic’s last four home games.
We think that Indiana will return the favor tonight in Orlando and beat the Magic. The Pacers are favored, but you should feel comfortable laying the points at best sports books.
