Indiana Pacers Betting
The Indiana Pacers battled the Minnesota Timberwolves twice in their last two games and both games favored them. In their last encounter, TJ Warren had a huge game with 28 points, five rebounds and two assists. Jeremy Lamb chipped in with 18 points along with six rebounds and two assists. Malcolm Brogdon had 12 points and ten assists to record a double-double while Doug McDermott and Aaron Holiday came off the bench with 13 points each. This was a game that Domantas Sabonis had a tough night as he was plagued with foul trouble but McDermott was there to fill in. With Malcolm Brogdon back, the Pacers have some stability in their backcourt and without him, they could have lost to the T-Wolves twice. Look for him to carry the decision making against the Nuggets.

Denver Nuggets Betting
The Nuggets are coming off an overtime win over the Golden State Warriors. But to be honest, the game should have not gone to overtime given that the Warriors have struggled all season. As usual, Nikola Jokic dominated with 23 points, 12 rebounds and eight assists but he also had nine turnovers for the game. Will Barton led the team with 31 points, seven assists and five rebounds while Malik Beasley was fantastic with 27 points. Michael Porter Jr. showcased his potential with 18 points and 10 rebounds while Mason Plumlee had 15 points and 14 rebounds. Both players came off the bench. The Nuggets have allowed the Warriors to catch them and their defense was weaker than usual. To win against the Pacers, they need to avoid being complacent especially against a defensive-oriented team.
