Indiana Pacers Betting
It was a humiliating loss at home for the Pacers as they lost to the Miami Heat who are known to be a terrible team on the road. They got defeated by 13 points and this is their third loss in four games. Domantas Sabonis led the way fo the Pacers with 27 points, 14 rebounds, six assists while shooting an accurate 10-of-13 from the field. Four other pacers were in double figures but they expected much from TJ Warren and Myles Turner who had a subpar night. Turner was 3-of-9 and Warren was only 1-of5 in 23 minutes. This team needs its starters play well for the minutes they are given.

Chicago Bulls Betting
It was an ugly outing by the Bulls as they lost to the Pelicans in their last game. Zach Lavine is giving his best out there with 30 points, six assists and five rebounds. Other than that, Lauri Markkanen is underwhelming with 14 points and four rebounds. Not much life was shown by the Bulls shown here in this game and they will be having a tough time with the Pacers since they don’t have a legitimate center tight now playing for them. Filling in the middle was Thaddeus Young with 18 points and 6 rebounds but he could not help the team that much as he was forced to play the position.
Players to Watch: Z. LaVine PG 38 GP 38 GS 33.8 MIN 23.9 PTS 0.7 OR 3.8 DR 4.6 REB 4 AST 1.4 STL 0.4 BLK 3.2 TO 2.2 PF 1.2 AST/TO 18.63 PER
