Indiana Pacers Betting
The Pacers saw their streak stopped by the Milwaukee Bucks and will be out for redemption. Despite the absence of key players, several stars are holding out well. T.J. Warren and Domantas Sabonis will anchor the Indiana offense alongside Malcolm Brogdon. The Pacers are allowing the opposition 107.4 points but tightening up should boost their chances of pulling this one off.
Players to watch: T.J. Warren SF 58 GP 58 GS 32.5 MIN 18.7 PTS 0.9 OR 2.9 DR 3.9 REB 1.5 AST 1.2 STL 0.4 BLK 1.3 TO 2.7 PF 1.1 AST/TO 17.52 PER

Chicago Bulls Betting
The Chicago Bulls have 20 games left but their chances of catching the last bus to the playoffs is looking bleak. Injuries to key players have made it doubly harder although there are some who returned to active duty.

Chicago is allowing 110.1 points per game.
