Moneyline: The Pacers are a no brainer pick here. Sure, they dropped their season-opener but no one expected Andre Drummond to put up a 30-20 game. The Cavs have Kevin Love and Collin Sexton, but they clearly need another scorer to be competitive.
ATS: The Pacers are -5 favorite over the Cavs. Expect Indiana to play aggressive offense from the get-go. A double-digit win for Indiana is very much a possibility.
TOTALs: The O/U total for this game is set at 215 points. The Pacers are a good offensive team, but they are not that kind of team that can light up the score sheet. As for the Cavs, an 85-point output should raise some concerns about their offense going forward. For the second consecutive game, the Cavs will fail to reach the century mark. This game will not exceed 215-point totals.
Score Prediction: 111-98 Pacers
