Indiana Pacers Betting
Without the twin towers of Myles Turner and Domantas Sabonis, the Indiana Pacers lean on T.J Leaf and Goga Bitadze to get a couple of victories at home. Bitadze, the 18th overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, recorded 10 points, nine rebounds and four blocks in a 102-95 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday, and followed it up with nine points, four rebounds and four more blocks in a 108-95 victory over the Chicago Bulls on Sunday. Leaf also chalked up a double-double with 13 points and 15 boards against Chicago to improve their home record at 2-1.
Players to Watch: Malcolm Brogdon (22.5 PPG, 5.3 RPG, 9.7 APG), Domas Sabonis (21.8 PPG, 11.4 RPG, 2.6 APG), Jeremy Lamb (16.8 PPG, 6.8 RPG, 2.2 APG)
Charlotte Hornets Betting
The Hornets are back to .500 after taking a pair of road wins against the Kings and the Warriors. Dwayne Bacon scored 25 points on 10-for-21 field goal shooting, while Terry Rozier tallied 20 points, 7 assists and 5 boards against Golden State, who missed all of their starters (Steph Curry, Draymond Green, Klay Thompson, Kevon Looney, and D’Angelo Russell) due to injuries.
Players to Watch Terry Rozier (16.0 PPG, 4.0 RPG, 5.8 APG), P.J. Washington (15.0 PPG, 6.7 RPG, 1.2 APG), Devonte’ Graham (14.3 PPG, 3.8 RPG, 6.8 APG)

Indiana Pacers vs Charlotte Hornets Betting Picks

Moneyline: The Pacers (-141) look poised to go over .500 for the first time this season with a win against the Hornets (+114) on Tuesday. Even without Turner and Sabonis, Bitadze and Leaf proved to be solid contributors in their stead, while do-it-all guard Malcolm Brogdon will definitely give the home team all sorts of problems.
ATS: The Pacers are 2-3-1 against the spread this season. The guard play of Brogdon and Jeremy Lamb is going to be key in a projected double-digit win by Indiana (-2.5).
TOTALs: Indiana and Charlotte averaged a combined 210 points per game this season. The Hornets are struggling to put up points in their first season without Kemba Walker, as they only exceeded the century mark only twice. This game will go under the point totals.
Score Prediction: 107-93 Pacers
