The Indiana Pacers (28-31) travel to meet the Orlando Magic (18-41) Sunday at Amway Center. Tip-off is set for 8 p.m. ET. Below, we analyze the Pacers-Magic odds and lines, with NBA picks and predictions.

The Pacers picked up a 115-109 win against the visiting Detroit Pistons on Saturday. Indiana has won two in a row for the first time since a three-game win streak from April 7-11, which includes its last trip to Orlando.

The Magic was dusted 135-100 by the New Orleans Pelicans on Thursday night, losing for the fourth straight outing.

Orlando has also failed to cover in each of the past four, and is 1-6 ATS across the past seven. The Magic did cover April 9 in a 111-106 loss to the Pacers, barely, as six-point dogs.

Pacers at Magic: Odds, lines, predictions and picks

Prediction

Pacers 118, Magic 108

Money line (ML)

The Pacers (-225) will cost you more than two times your potential return, and that’s a risky proposition since they’re on the road. It’s just a little past my personal limit of -180 for a money line play.

PASS.

Against the spread (ATS)

The PACERS -5.5 (-110) is the way to go, and a much better value than just playing the money line.

Indiana is 16-7-1 ATS across the past 24 games as a road favorite and 16-5-1 ATS in the past 22 on the road against teams with a losing home mark.

On the flip side, the Magic +5.5 (-110) are skidding hard, failing to cash in each of the past four, while going 0-4 ATS in the past four at home, too, and 0-4 ATS in the previous four as an underdog.

Over/Under (O/U)

OVER 224.5 (-115) is the play according to the trends and don’t worry about Indiana having just played Saturday night.

The Pacers have hit the Over in 15 of their past 20 games on the road while going 5-2 in the past seven overall. And the Over is 5-1 in their past six when playing on no rest.

The Magic has hit the Over in five of the past six, and five of the previous six as an underdog, too.

The Over is also 6-2 in Orlando’s past eight at home, and 6-1 in the past seven meetings with Indiana, too.
