The Indiana Pacers (31-36) travel to meet the Cleveland Cavaliers (21-47) Monday at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m. ET. Below, we analyze the Pacers vs. Cavaliers odds and lines, with NBA picks and predictions.

The Pacers are coming off a heartbreaking 133-132 overtime loss against the Washington Wizards, and they have covered each of the past two as underdogs.

The Cavaliers were thumped at home, 124-97, losing and failing to cover for the 10th consecutive outing. Each of the past six games have been losses by at least 16 points.

Pacers at Cavaliers: Odds, lines, predictions and picks

Prediction

Pacers 130, Cavaliers 105

Money line (ML)

The Pacers (-250) will cost you two-and-a-half times your potential return, and that’s just too risky even though the Cavaliers (+190) are a dumpster fire right now.

Against the spread (ATS)

The PACERS -6 (-110) seems too good to be true, laying just three buckets against a Cavaliers +6 (-110) side that has dropped and failed to cover 10 consecutive games. Indiana is also 23-10-2 ATS across the past 35 meetings against Cleveland, as they have owned the Cavaliers over the years.

Over/Under (O/U)

OVER 229.5 (-110) is the way to go. The Pacers have rolled up at least 131 points in five of the past eight games, and they have allowed 126 or more points in five of the past seven. That high scoring and lack of defense is driving the Over train.
