Prediction

Suns 112, Pacers 108

Moneyline (ML)

The SUNS ( +100) have been frustrating. They have won seven of their last 12 games but seem to lose the games they should and win the ones they shouldn’t. They are coming off a two-point loss against the San Antonio Spurs Monday in which they were behind almost the entire game and rallied to nearly win.

The Pacers (-121) have won five of their last six and six of their last eight. Indiana is an even 11-11 on the road but 10-5 after a loss. They are coming off a 118-88 loss to the Utah Jazz Monday. They are 7-5 when favored on the road. The Suns are only 1-6 at home when they are underdogs but are an even 12-12 after a loss this season. Most of those losses came during an eight-game losing streak.

That said, expect the Suns to show up, F Deandre Ayton is playing very well and SG Devin Booker has been one of the league’s most efficient players this season.

New to sports betting? A $10 wager on Suns returns a profit of $10 with a win.

Line/Against the Spread (ATS)

The Pacers are favored at -2.5 (+105) on the road. They are 8-7 this season against the spread after a loss and 6-6 as a road favorite. The Suns are 13-10-1 ATS after a loss and 4-3 ATS as a home dog. They play many close games.

Take the Suns to cover at +2.5 (-125).

Over/Under (O/U)

The total is set at 219.5 points. Suns games have hit the Over in three of their last four games. The Pacers have split the O/U 3-3 in their last six. Their games have gone Under in seven of their 12 games as road favorites. Suns games have gone Over in five of seven games as home dogs.

This will be close but they will just barely hit the OVER (-125).
