4* NBA OVER/UNDER TOTAL KNOCKOUT
Indiana vs. Philadelphia,
01/09/2012 19:00 EDT,
Score: 86 - 96
Total: -110/+185 Under
The Pacers and 76ers are both playing extremely well to start the season. Indiana is 6-2 while Philadelphia is 5-2. Both of these teams are playing extremely hard on the defensive side of the floor. Indiana comes in allowing just 89.2 ppg while the 76ers give up just 85.6.
This will be the 76ers third straight home after opening the season with five consecutive road games. In their first two home games against Detroit and Toronto they held the Pistons to just 73 and the Raptors to only 62. Indiana is scoring just 93.0 ppg and I have a hard time believing they will come close to that mark in this one.
The Pacers have also looked very strong on the defensive end over their last two games. Indiana went into Boston and beat the Celtics 87-74. They followed that up by allowing Charlotte just 77 points in a 22-point blowout win.
The UNDER is 7-1 in 76ers last 8 home games, 7-0 in Pacers last 7 vs. a team with a winning S.U. record, and 10-2 in the last 12 meetings between these two clubs. BET THE UNDER 185!
