Spurs at Pacers: Odds, Lines, Predictions and Tips
Spurs 119, Pacers 114
Money line (ML)
San Antonio does a really good job defending what Indiana does a lot and what attacks the rim.
The Pacers try most field goals within five feet of the hoop, while the Spurs have the best percentage of defensive field goals compared to attempts within five feet of the hoop.
In addition, the Spurs are more geared towards finals – San Antonio ranks sixth in clutch situations and Indiana ranks 27th.
This figure likely explains the Spurs ‘6-4 ATS record if they are between 1-2.5 points and the Pacers’ 3-6 ATS record if points are detected in that range.
And while this is technically a money line bet, these trends apply because betting on San Antonio to win costs only five cents more on the dollar than its spread.

Against the Spread (ATS)
CONSIST Since the money lines and spreads are almost identical, there is no value in the points in either point.
Over / Under (O / U)
Light “LEAN” to the OVER 231.5 (-110) for a quarter of a unit because Spurs-Pacers opened at 229.5 overall but was subdued even though almost 90% of the money is on the under, according to Pregame.com.
This line movement tells me that bookies want more money for the under and we don’t want to play into the hand of the house.
In addition, the over has won four Spurs-Pacers direct games, four of San Antonio’s last six games and four of Indiana’s last five.
