How to handle betting on Clippers-Pacers

The line is essentially a toss up, so how should approach it? We break down the odds and lines on DK Sportsbook.

The Indiana Pacers (15-8) host the Los Angeles Clippers (17-7) on Monday night’s nine-game NBA card. The Pacers are 9-2 at home and are likely to get point guard Malcolm Brogdon (hand) back in the lineup after he sat out this weekend. The Clippers are on the second of a back-to-back and Kawhi Leonard is a candidate for load management. Let’s break down the lines and spreads on DraftKings Sportsbook.

Clippers vs. Pacers spread, over/under, money line

Spread: Pacers (+1)
Over/Under: 217
Money Line: Pacers (+102), Clippers (-120)

I was beginning to write this and the lines shifted pretty quickly. First off, Leonard hasn’t played a full back-to-back set all season. He is more than likely to sit, so getting the Pacers and points at home is favorable. Indiana is a strong home team and the Clippers will be down their best player. Brogdon moves the needle slightly as well, which is odd the line is shifting this way. I’d lean the UNDER given how the Pacers play defensively and the Clippers potentially being without Kawhi. Also give me plus-money on the line for Indiana.
