7* NBA Play
Chicago vs. Indiana,
03/03/2013 20:00 EDT,
Score: 92 - 97
Point Spread: -7½/-106 Indiana
The Indiana Pacers are a team that has been flying under the radar a bit of late. The Pacers are playing as well as anyone other than the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference.
Indiana's half court defense is the best in the NBA, and that keeps them in almost every game. Indiana is 34-25 ATS this year, which tells me the oddsmakers have never really been high enough on them so far this season.
Chicago has been really inconsistent of late. The Bulls will be playing without Taj Gibson and Richard Hamilton in this one, and they are two key contributors to the team.
Chicago’s offense just doesn't have many good options on the perimeter now, and that puts too much pressure on their frontcourt.
The last meeting between these two was won by Indiana by ten points.
I expected this line to be around 9 or 10, but I love getting the red hot Pacers at just 7.5 points here. Indiana matches up well against the short-handed Bulls.
Indiana is 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games against the NBA Central Division. They are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Bulls are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 Sunday games. Take Indiana.
Good Luck, Razor Ray.
