Pick ATS: Hornets -1.5
The Hornets are looking to snap their two-game losing streak after they fell 125-113 to the Toronto Raptors on Tuesday night. With their loss against Toronto, Charlotte also had a three-game road winning streak snapped. The Hornets are 7-3 against the spread in their last 10 games and 6-2 ATS in their last eight road games. However, Charlotte is 2-6 ATS on the second night of a back-to-back this season.
The Pacers are also trying to break their two-game losing streak after they lost 117-113 to the New Orleans Pelicans on Monday night. Indiana has struggled at home this season recently, losing four out of their last five games.
The Pacers will be looking to get back Domantas Sabonis, who has missed the last couple of games because of an ankle injury. Indiana is 5-3 ATS when they are home underdog, but 13-10-1 ATS at home this season. The Pacers are also 3-7 straight up in their last 10 games and 8-22 against other teams from the East. The Hornets have not fared well with back-to-backs this season, but they’ve had the Pacers’ numbers this season. Take Charlotte and the points.
Over/Under: Under 228
Through their first three matchups this season, the total points scored were 245, 239, and 224.
