Indiana Pacers vs Minnesota Timberwolves Betting Picks

The Pacers entering Wednesday’s game as the NBA Moneyline and spread favorites isn’t surprising considering the quality of opponents they defeated over the last 10 games. The Wolves, on the other hand, are still hoping Towns will finally return and lead the charge in their playoff push.

Moneyline: Bet on the Pacers at -145. Like I said, Indiana has become a force in the East. Their two wins over the Philadelphia 76ers showed to you that they are more than just a playoff contender, they could win it all with main star Victor Oladipo set to rejoin the team after the All-Star break.

ATS: Back on the Pacers to cover the 2.5-point spread. Even if Towns plays on Wednesday, I don’t know if the Wolves are capable of holding their losing margin under 3 points. Indiana is doing something special right now and it would take a super-elite team to halt their momentum.

TOTALs: Bet on OVER at 218.5 points. The OVER is 7-2-1in Indiana’s last 10 games. The Pacers are scoring steadily between 100 to 120 points range over that stretch.

Score Prediction: 118 – 110 Pacers
