The Atlanta Hawks (37-30) travel to meet the Indiana Pacers (30-35) Thursday at Bankers Life Field House. Tip-off is set for 8 p.m. ET. Below, we analyze the Hawks vs. Pacers odds and lines, with NBA picks and predictions.

The Hawks are coming off a 135-103 win against Phoenix Suns, using a 38-15 fourth quarter to pull away as the Over connected. Atlanta has won and covered three in a row while averaging 129.0 PPG across the past two.

The Pacers are also playing the second end of a back-to-back, but they didn’t have to travel. Indiana fell 104-93 at home against the Sacramento Kings in a low-scoring game which saw a total of just 94 points in the second half as the Under easily hit.

Hawks at Pacers: Odds, lines, predictions and picks

Prediction

Hawks 124, Pacers 109

Money line (ML)

The Hawks (-225) are a little more expensive than my personal money line limit, which is generally -180. You can’t risk more than two times your potential return on a regular basis and expect to have a strong return on investment over the long term.

AVOID.

Against the spread (ATS)

The HAWKS -5.5 (-110) are the play on the road, as the Pacers +5.5 (-110) are really sliding. Indiana is 1-4 SU/ATS across the past five, and they have allowed 130 or more points in three of those games while losing by 11 or more in each of the losses.

Over/Under (O/U)

UNDER 240.5 (-110) is rather high considering each of these clubs just played Wednesday night, and the legs might be a tad tired on both sides. The Under is 6-1 in the past seven meetings in Indianapolis, too.
