Indiana Pacers Betting

The Indiana Pacers have been plagued last season and could just imagine if they had a complete roster. With most players ready to roll, the expectations for this team is higher and will look to a better playoff spot. Domantas Sabonis will always be the top contributor across the board for the Pacers and he will have help with TJ Warren returning after missing last season. Myles Turner and Malcolm Brogdon are staples in the starting lineup and will have last year’s mid-season acquisition Caris LeVert hoping in with more experience with his new teammates. It is the same Pacers with better health.

Charlotte Hornets Betting

The Charlotte Hornets are a young team that is looking for better things heading this season. Devonte Graham is not with the team already and that means LaMelo Ball will have more minutes at the point guard position. The sophomore guard is expected to step up and have better numbers and he will still have Terry Rozier at the wing as the team’s best scoring option. A healthier Gordon Hayward is back with the Hornets and will help stabilize the team’s system. Mason Plumlee is expected to be the team’s starting center and will be helping in the rebounding department as well as kicking out to the shooters.

Players to Watch: T. Rozier SG 69 GP 69 GS 34.5 MIN 20.4 PTS 0.7 OR 3.7 DR 4.4 REB 4.2 AST 1.3 STL 0.4 BLK 1.9 TO 1.7 PF 2.3 AST/TO 17.15 PER
