Hornets at Pacers: Odds, Lines, Predictions and Tips
Pacers 116, Hornets 109
Money line (ML)
The Pacemaker (-150) are not too expensive if you just want to play them directly in this opening and don’t want to mess around with the points. You’ll obviously pay a little more, however, and scoring 3 isn’t that big of a deal against the freezing hornets.

Against the Spread (ATS)
The PACERS -3 (-110) have been cover kings lately, going 6-0-1 ATS for the past seven years while the Hornets hobble with five straight losses. Reset the Pacers to move forward.
Over / Under (O / U)
UNDER 227.5 (-110) is slim here, very light. The Under is 21-5 in the last 26 meetings in Indianapolis and 3-0-1 in the last four meetings of the series. The sub is also 12-5 over the last 17 on the road for the hornets. While that is all and well, the over has dominated for Indiana lately. However, the under 3-0-1 is in the last four for the Pacers against Sub-500 teams.
