Thunder at Pacers: Odds, lines, predictions and picks

Prediction

Pacers 115, Thunder 108

Money line (ML)

The Pacers (-450) are too expensive, as they will cost you four and a half times your potential return. That’s risky business any time, but especially on a sub-.500 team which has dropped three in a row.

PASS.

Against the spread (ATS)

The THUNDER +9 (-110) have hit in two of the past three games as a double-digit underdog. Yes, they did cover by just a half-point last time out in Washington, but a cover is a cover.

The Pacers -9 (-110) are 0-5 ATS as favorites of five or more points across the past five, and they’ll be without one of their top players, if not the best, with Sabonis on the shelf.

Over/Under (O/U)

UNDER 228.5 (-105) is worth a small-unit play in this one. The Under has cashed in 13 of the last 16 road outings while hitting in five of the past six for the Thunder.

The Under is also 7-0 in the past seven meetings in this series, including 4-0 in the past four in Indianapolis.
